Twelve Days of Christmas activity for service for your neighbor. 12 Days of Christmas ideas with free printable.
Our neighbors did the cutest 12 Days of Christmas for us this past Christmas, and I wanted to share it with all of you!
We have no idea who this anonymous neighbor was, but they left a cute note and gift for every night of the twelve days of Christmas, and it meant so much to us!
It meant that we weren’t as busy with Christmas activities as we usually were, and our other kids were a bit sad about missing out on some Christmas traditions like ice skating.
But having these fun gifts to look forward to every evening for almost two weeks was a Christmas miracle for us. The kids would spend the day trying to guess what would be left that night.
These 12 Days of Christmas notes and gifts were such a wonderful delight for my family, and I wanted to share them with all of you. I’ve provided a free printable for you, along with gift ideas.
