On The Fourth Day of Christmas

     Do you like to collect something special?  Have you ever noticed what kids like to collect?  Rocks.  Unh, huh.  Its true.  Walk outside with a child for five minutes and you’ll have a collection of rocks to rival any Hummel or Precious Moments assortment you can buy.  The difference, of course, is the price.

     On the Fourth Day of Christmas, borrow from a favorite child’s natural tendency to collect rocks and put it to something useful.  Find a rock about the size of the palm of your hand or whatever is comfortable.  Using markers or modeling paints, draw a face on one side of the rock and set it aside to dry.  Next, surf the the internet for a poem titled, Prayer Rock.  I posted a link, but there are other versions of this poem, so choose the one you like best.

     Follow the directions on this site, wrap it nicely and you have a very nice gift for the Fourth day of Christmas.

     Day one, a poem.
     Day two, a story.
     Day three, some games.
     Day four, give glory.

     We’re on the right track for giving without a lot of spending for Christmas.  Come back tomorrow for more fun.
