The Sweetest Story Ever Told

For this Singing Time, children will be chosen to choose a candy that is set out on a table.  Each candy has a song to sing and a scripture to be read.  Each candy piece represents a part of the Christmas story.

Rocky Road: represents Joseph
When Joseph Went to Bethlehem
Luke 2:4-5

Sugar Babies: represents baby Jesus
Away in a Manger
Luke 2:7

Candy Cane: represents The Shepard's
The Shepard's Carol
Luke 2:8-9

Almond Joy: represents Angel
Hymn 203 Angels We Have Heard on High
Luke 2:10-12

Dove: represents Peace
Hymn 212 Far, Far Away
Luke 2:12-14

Smarties: represents The Wise Men
H210 With Wondering Awe
Matthew 2:1-2

Starburst: represents the Star
Stars Were Gleaming
Matthew 2:9-10

Reison: represents-Jesus is the REASON for the season!!!
I Wonder When He Comes Again
John 3:16

This is a great idea to have a little fun with candy, sing, read the scriptures, and feel the spirit!!!

  1. Hello! I did this today & it went REALLY well. Both Jr. & Sr. primary enjoyed it. I added "Milk Duds" to represent the stable (cows/milk)... I know it's a stretch but it's the only thing I could think of for it! I wanted to sing "Once within a Lowly Stable" also. Thanks for the fun idea!

  2. Milk Duds... awesome! We are so glad you could use the idea for your primary. It's so good to hear that iheartprimarymusic is helping!!!

  3. Our kids LOVED this last year (can't go wrong with candy) we are doing it again this next week! Thank you!
