Giving service is such an important tradition to pass on to your children, especially at this special holiday time. A family service jar is a wonderful way to do just that! We all know the phrase, “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings”. Each time someone in your family gives service, put a bell in the jar. You can tell your kids to ring each bell they put in to help an angel get its wings. What better way to show kids all the good that service can do than with a little jingle! There are simple acts of service that kids can give to their own family members – make a family members bed, unload the dishwasher on someone’s else’s turn, feed the animals, etc. Some of the bigger ideas for service out side the family:

  • Visit an elderly home. Not only will you the residents smile but they will certainly make you smile.
  • Shovel the snow from a neighbors driveway or sidewalk
  • Law enforcement always appreciate baked goodies or something sweet.
  • Babysit for a single mom or a couple that really needs it.
  • Make a family goal for when the jar gets filled.

Decorate your service jar in a variety of ways! Your family would enjoy decorating the jar.

Supplies to Make Family Service Jar

  • mason jar
  • jingle bells
  • gold ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • “Service Jar” printable (at end of post)

 

To make the Family Service Jar, cut a strand of gold ribbon and hot glue it around the mason jar or tie a bow. Print out the printable with the “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings” quote. Attach it to the service jar as a sweet reminder.

Put a jingle bell in every time someone in your family gives service and help the angels get their wings! I hope that your home will be filled with the sweet jingle of service this holiday season!

    What a great idea. I love this as a way to battling entitlement during the almost-overwhelming lead up to Christmas. Thanks for this!
