Use the Activity Outline for a family-friendly discussion and service activity. It doesn't take a lot of time, just pick one evening in the month of December to spend time together serving. Let the spirit of Christmas fill your home.
After you discuss how Jesus served his loved ones, each family member can share ideas of how they can serve. As they share, invite them to choose a gingerbread person to represent them or create their own. Attach the gingerbread people's hands together to create a gingerbread garland.
Next, make a treat together, using this gingerbread recipe which is included with the printables.) These are so fun to make and decorate. They're super soft and yummy, especially with your favorite frosting! Encourage your family to make a cookie for someone else too.
Here's how you assemble the gingerbread box. This printable gingerbread house could be used for many things.
Now, it's time to serve! Choose someone who would enjoy a little treat. Create this adorable cookie box! Put your gingerbread people inside. Then, deliver your goodies, as a family, and brighten someone's day.
Pick one of these cute tags to add to your cookie box. If you want to have each family member deliver the special cookie they made, put the cookie in a sandwich bag and add a tag to the bag.
