While out caroling with my family last night, we visited the Temple president's home and his wife (who is our cousin) gave us a bag of M&Ms with this adorable poem that links the candies to the Nativity story! I absolutely fell in love with it!I knew immediately that I wanted to create a cute printable that I could share with all of you to help you make a sweet and simple gift for teachers, neighbors, or friends!
Here is the poem:
As you hold these candies in your hand
and turn them, you will see
The 'M' become a 'W',
an 'E' and then a '3'
They tell the Christmas Story ~
I'm sure it's one you know.
It took place in a stable
a long, long time ago.
The 'E' is for the East
Where the star shone so bright!
The 'M' is for the Manger
where the baby Jesus slept at night.
The '3' is for the wisemen,
bearing gifts with which they came.
'W' is for Worship!
Hallelujah! Praise His name!
So as you eat these candies,
or share them with a friend,
Remember the meaning of Christmas.
It's a love that never ends!
