5 Christmas Service Ideas Kids (+ Their Families!) Can Do

One of the most treasured gifts you can give another person is a joyous memory. So this holiday season, we’re giving you 5 memory-making Christmas service activities that children and families alike will love.


All these ideas are guaranteed to touch you in some way, perhaps through your heartstrings or your funny bone. However they touch you, they’ll leave you with that most wonderful of things — a joyous memory that honors God.

5 Christmas Service Ideas Kids and Families Can Do

Use these ideas to make unforgettable memories. Celebrate family, celebrate those in need, celebrate giving, and most importantly — celebrate Jesus!

1.  Holiday Muggings

Extend a little holiday cheer to church visitors during the Christmas season with this special gift from the kids in your ministry.

2. Card Connection

Take rubber stamps and supplies for Christmas cards to a local homeless shelter. Provide stamps and envelopes so residents can mail the cards to friends and relatives.

3. Carols and Cookies

Take families to a nursing home to sing Christmas carols and serve cookies. A few families can even bring dogs to visit those who couldn’t come to the gathering room.

4. Bingo

At a senior center, get a  group of families together to play Bingo with the residents and serve root beer floats.

5. Food for Everyone

Have families go door-to-door collecting food for a local food bank.
