Spend some time talking about the homeless shelter or the food pantry or the local soldiers that are away -- and instead of a $5 gift or other junk to have around the house, each brings something to put under a little tree that on the last day before the holidays you'll wrap up in a big box to take as a donation. It is a great feeling to start early with the kids....and most parents encourage and are pleased with the process!
