Poems For Christmas For Kids

Updated on December 16, 2016

I Believe in Santa

Having faith in Santa Claus

Is not for just the young,

I know I'll keep proclaiming him

As long as I've a tongue;

And even though I see the gent

Unmasked before my eyes,

Revealing some familiar friend

Who's donned the quaint disuise,

It doesn't change my mind a bit;

I'll still believe, because

There's more than whiskers

and a suit

To dear old Santa Claus;

Bright hopes there are,

And dreams come true,

Good cheer, unselfish sharing

Personified by gifts of love

Within the pack he's bearing.

To call these angels "Santa Claus"

Is surely not deceiving,

So I, for one, will never scoff

But go right on believing.

M. Kathleen Haley


This is an acrostic {acrostic per Webster dictionary is a composition usually in verse in which sets of letters (as the initial or final letters of the lines) taken in order form a word or phrase or a regular sequence of letters of the alphabet}

This acrostic is for nine children. Each child carries a large red piece of cardboard, which can be shaped like the letter they represent or shaped like a tree ornament with the letter they represent on it.

Put two sided tape on the back of each piece of cardboard, or punch a small hole at the top of each letter and securely insert a small piece of string and tie it at the end.

After the performance the child can tape his ornament to a Christmas tree wall decoration made just for this special ornament hanging occasion or hang his ornament on a Christmas tree.


C is for the choir that sang

A shining host of angels bright;

They winged o'er Bethlehem of old

Amid a flame of glorious light.


H is for the herald star,

The ray that shone o'er Bethlehem

And by lt's light the Christ was crowned

With holy, mystic diadem.


R is for Redeemer King;

For Jesus came to seek and save

And on the height of Calvery

His life for men He gave.


I is for the Infant Lord,

Christ came to earth as Baby small;

In human form He lived and served,

A great Example for us all.


S is for the Sages true

Who sought and found the Jewish King;

As a holy sign of faith

Richest treasures they did bring.


T is for the tidings blest

That echoed over hill and plain;

"A Savior now is born to you!"

Again we hear the holy strain.


M is for the morning bright

That Jesus brought to all the earth,

For doubt and fear have taken flight

And men proclaim his power and worth.


A is for the anthem sweet,

The "glory song" of angel throng

That every ear may gladly greet

When blessed Christmas comes along.


S is for the story dear,

The Christmas story that we love;

In gratitude it's word we hear

And send our praising songs above.


Christmas! Day we gladly keep,

Natal day of Christ the Lord;

O'er the world in accents deep

We'll send our praise in sweet accord.

The children may exit singing a favorite Christmas carol, and then still singing place the letters on the Christmas tree or other wall or standing decoration.

Christmas Joy


A loving gift, a happy wish,

And a pleasant smile or two,

Will scatter joy at Christmas time,

A joy that comes back to you.
