To help make service ideas fun and accessible to the youngest participants, this year’s Light the World initiative includes a daily service calendar for children.

The daily prompts start on Giving Tuesday, November 30, and continue for the 25 days leading up to Christmas Day. As children complete each prompt, they can color the corresponding number spaces on the included Nativity coloring page.

Service ideas throughout December include writing or drawing things the child loves about each person in their family, watching the “The Christ Child,” praying to Heavenly Father each morning and night, delivering food to someone in need, and sharing a scripture with someone about Jesus.

Sister Reyna I. Aburto, Second Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency, posted about her excitement for this new calendar on social media on November 30.

“Christmas is a great time to teach children about how they can serve others,” she wrote. “What could you do today to serve someone or to help a child give service?”

On December 1, Primary General President Camille N. Johnson shared a picture of her grandchildren on social media and listed three things she loves about them. “Will you #LightTheWorld today by inviting your children to write down what they love about their family members?” she asked.
