Christmas Candy Cane Tag {printable}

a few years ago i heard the "Legend of the Candy Cane" and the Jesus candy cane poem for the very first time. have you heard of it?

Look at a CANDY CANE, what do you see?

Stripes that are RED like the BLOOD shed for me! 

WHITE for my Savior, Who's sinless and pure! 

"J" is for JESUS, My Lord that's for sure! 

Turn it around And a staff you will see --- 

Jesus, my SHEPHERD, Is coming for me! 

it's a very sweet little poem, and i'll never see a candy cane the same again. 

that poem came to mind when i was thinking of giving my son's preschool friends a candy cane treat for Christmas. i imagined the poem printed on a tag tied to the candy cane. and then i remembered that my son's classmates are only 3 years old, and {smart as they are} they can't read yet. so instead, i made this tag with the upside down candy cane as the J for Jesus! 3 year olds can understand that!

i made the tags into a printable for you. just print, cut, color, tie onto your candy canes, and share a treat with the simple message that Jesus is the reason for the season!
