Symbols of Christmas Bag

Do your kids need a little reminder of the true meaning of Christmas? I sewed and embroidered this bag with one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes. Inside the bag I included some symbols of Christmas. I'm excited to keep this bag of symbols and bring it out every year to remind us of Christ.

Here are some of the items I included in the bag.

Christmas tree: points to heaven and reminds us that God is eternal
Candy cane: shaped like a shepherd's staff, Jesus is the true shepherd that brings us into the fold. He cares for us and guides us. The red represents his great sacrifice and white represents purity. We are cleansed through his blood. Its shape is also a J for Jesus.
Star: wise men followed the new star
Presents: God's greatest gift to us is eternal life through his son Jesus Christ
Candle: Jesus is the light of the world
Angel: told the shepherds of the birth of Jesus

You might want to make your own bag or box with the little symbols too.
