When I first heard of this year’s #LIGHTtheWORLD Christmas Initiative, and looked at the calendar, there was one day/theme that caught my eye: Day 15–Jesus Worshipped Through Song and So Can You. I immediately thought of Christmas caroling, and thought of some great printables that could be used for your own Christmas Caroling activity.
I remember going Christmas Caroling with my family when I was younger. I’m sure there were some of my family members that weren’t too excited about caroling, but after we returned home I think we would have all agreed what a wonderful evening it was.
Last year, my family decided to have our own caroling night and delivered treats to friends and neighbors. Although it started off rough, by the end of the night our hearts were full and our children could feel the wonderful feeling of serving others.
It doesn’t take too much work to plan your own Christmas Caroling activity, and I have created some great printables to make it even easier!
CHRISTMAS CAROLING ACTIVITY
Pick a night and meet with your family to discuss your Christmas Caroling activity. Print out my Christmas Caroling Planning sheet to help you plan. On the sheet you will find space to write down families/people to visit, treats or gifts to deliver, and what songs you will be singing. Discuss these things as a family, youth group or as a group of friends (I have create several different planning sheets for different groups). Pick a nigh for your Caroling activity and write down what you decide.
Along with my planning sheets, I have also included 2 sheets of recipe cards. One sheet has a recipe for Home Hot Cocoa and Snickerdoodles, and the other sheet includes blank recipe cards for you to write down a recipe of your own.
These would be perfect to print out and attach to the treats you deliver to those that you visit. To go along with the recipe cards, I also created some cute tags to go attach to your treats as well.
I put my hot cocoa in a jar and added some marshmallows to the top. I used some pretty silver and white twine to attach some cute paper straws and a candy cane, and then finished it off with a ‘Merry Christmas’ tag. But don’t feel like you have to make homemade hot cocoa, go buy a box of hot cocoa packets and deliver those. I know how crazy Christmas-time is, make this as simple as possible. I’ll let you in on a little secret…the hot cocoa in the picture is actually Stephen’s hot cocoa. 🙂 We have been sick over here, so I didn’t feel like mixing up my homemade hot cocoa.
I have included a sheet of tags for you to use as well, including my ‘Merry Christmas’ tag and 3 more with messages, and then 2 blank tags that you can use to write your own message.
I hope you enjoy my Christmas Caroling Printables, and use them to plan your very own Christmas Caroling activity, to help #LIGHTtheWORLD this Christmas season. I would love to hear if you do, so leave me a comment letting me know. And snap a picture and tag me, so I can see it, and don’t forget to use the #LIGHTtheWORLD hashtag as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a very Merry Christmas!
