LDS Young Women 12 days of Christmas

**Added 08/21/2013** I have had so many requests I have FINALLY taken the time to add a link with all the original copies of this in a PDF form.  I also thought I would suggest to you what to do with the extra 2 days of Christmas.  On one day, write a personal note to your YW group for Christmas or about Christmas.  I like to talk to them about the "gifts" of Christmas and maybe advise them of ways they can be a gift to others.  For the other day, I would include in there some blank paper and a note for them to "pay it forward" and write someone a note for the holiday season.










I did the 12 days of Christmas for the girls this year.  I printed these stories and then stuck them in envelopes numbered 1-12 for them to open each day.  Here are 10 of the stories I used.  I know if it after Christmas but maybe you could use this idea next year!

  1. You have some lucky Young Women! I'm Primary Presidnent and thinking how I could implement ANY of your ideas! Unfortunately it's harder to spoil 40 kids rather than just one class! I can't wait for that day! I would love to do activity days!

  2. My Young Women group is 45... can you believe it? We are HUGE!

  3. Hey what are the other two you didn't include here? Or what ideas did you incorporate into the 12 days for those 2 days? We have a prez meeting coming up in about two weeks, and we'll be planning our Christmas gifts. If its not something the other sisters want to do, I'd like to do this with my 8 Beehives, if that's OK? Thanks, in advance.

  56. I LOVE this! I had something completely different prepared for this Sunday (the 16th) but came upon this and was so touched. Problem is, I tried downloading the individual days and the only way I could do it was "save image as" and it saves as a jpg. When I go to print it comes out blurry. Is there ANY way you could send them to me ASAP so I can use them tomorrow. my email is kmick7@gmail.com Thank you very much!

  68. Hi Shyloh,
    I am wondering what you did for the other 2 days? You have these 10 stories and then what did you do? I'd love to do this for my girls and thought one day they could have a personal letter from a YW leader, but not sure what I could do for the other day. Could you let me know what you did please and thank you :) Michelle

    1. Michelle, I did do a personal note from me to all the girls (same letter to all of them about the gifts of Christmas or whatever else you feel they need to hear!) For the 2nd date I left a note with blank paper telling them to write someone a note telling them something kind (to help them "spread Christmas cheer!" Good luck!
