Christmas Caroling Activity: #LIGHTtheWORLD Service Idea

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 15Jesus 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!



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 have subscribed to your blog, but I am unable to have access to the free printable. They are very nice and I was hoping to have them ready for my Sunday school class. Thank you for the beautiful printable. Please tell me how to access them.
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Betty. It would be helpful if I put the link, wouldn’t it? Sorry about that. I thought I added the link and must have forgotten. It is now there. Let me know if you have any other problems. 🙂

  2. Jeanne

    Sheena, I have tried several different ways to open the file for Caroling and it keeps coming up with the error 404 – file not found. Our RS would love to do this activity. Would it be possible to get a download of these pages from you? Thank you!

    1. Hi Jeanne. I am so sorry that the link wasn’t working. My site was hacked a few months ago, and in the process of getting it back to normal I lost several of my files and images. I just updated the link and checked it to make sure it worked. Let me know if you have any other questions or problems. Hope the activity goes well. 🙂

  3. Jessica

    Can I please get your Christmas Caroling Sheets? The link is not working. Thank you!

    1. Hi Jessica. Sorry I never responded, we were out of town for 2 weeks in November. Were you able to print the sheets? I updated the links, so they should be working.

  4. Donna

    These are beautiful, I’d love to use them for Young Women’s, but when I click on the link it tells me that the file is not found. Can you help? And thank you for the great ideas!!

    1. Thank you for the comment, Donna. Sorry that the link wasn’t working, but I just fixed the link so you should be able to download them now. Thanks!

    Sheena, This is GREAT but when I clicked on the link it says 404 Not Found. Please help!

    1. Hi Holly! Sorry about that, I just updated the link so it should be good now. 🙂

  6. Gina Tucker

    Hi! Could you update your link to your printables? I love these! Did you get your cookie boxes on Amazon?


    1. Hi Gina! I updated the links a few days ago, so they should be good to go. I got the cookie boxes from Pick Your Plum a long time ago, but I have seen them on Amazon and Etsy. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Grady! I love caroling and delivering treats to friends and neighbors. So glad you like the idea and printables. Thanks for adding it to your #LightTheWorld calendar. 🙂
