Christmas Candy Cane Poem



Our family just moved into a new neighborhood.  It has been so hectic with the baby, unpacking and selling our old home that unfortunately we have not had much time to go and introduce ourselves to our neighbors.  The kids and I decided to do something small for our neighbors.  We wanted to share Jesus with them this Christmas season so we are using a simple candy cane to do so as well as a sweet poem I found on-line. 




The below poem printed out (click on the below image to print, there are 4 per page)

Small candy canes


I put the printable together and my seven year old daughter cut them all out and we hot glued them onto the poem printable.  Tonight we plan on placing them in our neighbors mailbox as we stroll around our development enjoying all the Christmas lights. 


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!




Candy canes are not just for eating, there are so many other great festive crafts and treats to make with them too like these:

How are you sharing Jesus with  your neighbors this Christmas season? 


  1. Love this!! This is such a simple way to introduce yourself to your neighbors will sharing the love of Jesus with them at this special time! How did they respond?

  2. That’s such a sweet idea. A little treat and some lovely words about the holiday. Very creative and great to make with the kids!

  3. This is so sweet. Reminds of me of when I was young. I’m not sure my neighbors will appreciate it, but I know my son’s classmates will! Thank you!

  4. What a great little gift to give out to a Sunday school class. I am passing this on to my sister in law who teachers a class.

  5. What an interesting poem. I never heard it before. Hope you and your family have a merry Christmas!
