Candy Cane Poem

If this is your first visit to our blog, welcome!  We hope that you will stay awhile and check out the rest of Our Out-of-Sync Life Blog as well as our Free Preschool Curriculum website -  Thanks for stopping by! 

This poem was on a coloring sheet that Sweet Pea and Little Man did at church.  What a great way to share the birth of Jesus with little kids!

Look at the Candy Cane, what do you see?
Stripes that are red like the blood shed for me
White is for my Savior Who's sinless and pure!
"J" is for Jesus My Lord, that's for sure!
Turn it around and a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd was born for Me!
--Author Unknown

To introduce this poem and activity read:

The Candymaker's Gift: The Legend of the Candy Cane

I have created two printable to correlate with this poem.  Print the coloring sheet for the child to color the candy cane.  Print the poem on little cards and attach with a ribbon to a real candy cane.  Add to any gift or use as favors at parties or Christmas gatherings.

Find more Christmas activities on the ABC Jesus Loves Me Preschool Curriculum website.
