Gingerbread Gift Set Printables

Are you looking for a simple way to enjoy a Christ-centered Christmas? I have just the solution… Service! What a perfect way to celebrate Christmas and teach your family how to follow Jesus’s example!

To make it even more fun and easy, I have some free printables to share from Designed by Maria. Use this 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.

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 COOKIE RECIPE. These are so fun to make and decorate, for both kids and adults. They’re super soft and yummy, especially with your favorite frosting! Encourage your family to make a cookie for someone else too.

Now, it’s time to serve! Choose someone who would enjoy a little treat. Create this adorable COOKIE BOX. Put your gingerbread people inside. Because, gingerbread people live inside gingerbread houses, of course! Then, deliver your goodies, as a family, and brighten someone’s day.

Pick one of these cute CHRISTMAS 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. Remember loved ones too, friends and family will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

For every person you serve, add another gingerbread person to your garland. Watch your garland grow as you do your part to LIGHT THE WORLD through service!
