12 Christmas Poems For Kids

Here are 12 amazing Christmas-themed poems for kids for the 12 days of Christmas. 

  1. Remember the Reindeer
  2. By Anonymous

    Hang up the stockings.

    Decorate the tree.

    Presents placed perfectly.

    What a sight to see!

    Milk and cookies are out,

    Kids are tucked in tight.

    There’s so much to do

    On Christmas Eve night!

    Before you take a snooze

    And dream of the next day,

    Don’t forget some food

    For the friends who pull the sleigh!

    You see, reindeer need snacks, too

    A little love and fun

    To help Santa through the night,

    And get the important job done!

  3. I Like to See Christmas
  4. Author Unknown

    I like to see the stockings

    I like to see the gifts

    I like to see the bells

    I like to see the tree

    And I like to see Santa

    Looking at me!

  5. Peppermint Stick
  6. Author Unknown

    I took a lick

    Of a peppermint stick

    And oh it tasted yummy!

    It used to be

    On the Christmas tree

    But now it’s in my tummy!

  7. Five Little Reindeer
  8. Author Unknown

    Five little reindeer playing in the snow

    The first one said, “Can you see my nose glow?”

    The second one said, “Listen to me sing!”

    The third one said, “I can hear the bells ring.”

    The fourth one said, “Let’s eat the pie!”

    The fifth one said, “I’m ready to fly.”

    Then clomp went their hooves

    And the snow fell white

    As the five little reindeer flew out of sight.

  9. A Chubby Little Snowman
  10. By Anonymous

    A chubby little snowman

    Had a carrot nose.

    Along came a bunny,

    And what do you suppose?

    That hungry little bunny

    Looking for some lunch,

    Grabbed that snowman’s nose,

    Nibble, nibble, crunch!

  11. A Christmas Angel
  12. By Denise Burke

    Oh, I wish I was an angel on the tree

    Oh, I wish I was an angel on the tree

    I’d give every girl and boy

    Lots of Christmas peace and joy

    Oh, I wish I was an angel on the tree

  13. Snowball
  14. By Shel Silverstein

    I made myself a snowball

    As perfect as could be,

    I thought I’d keep it as a pet,

    And let it sleep with me.

    I made it some pajamas,

    And a pillow for its head,

    Then last night it ran away,

    But first—it wet the bed!

  15. The Little Christmas Carollers
  16. By L.A Franc

    We are a band of carollers,

    We march through frost and snow,

    But care not for the weather

    As on our way we go.

    At every hall or cottage

    That stands upon our way,

    We stop to give the people

    Best wishes for the day.

    We pray a merry Christmas,

    Made bright by Christmas cheer,

    With peace, and hope, and gladness

    And all they may hold dear.

    And for all those that happen

    To pass us on our way

    We have a smile, and wish them

    A merry Christmas-day.

  17. Magic Reindeer Food
  18. Author Unknown

    Be sure to take this magic food

    and sprinkle it on the lawn.

    On Christmas Eve, Santa’s reindeers

    travel miles before dawn.

    The smell of oats and glitter

    will guide them on their way.

    And you’ll wake up to Santa’s gifts

    on a merry Christmas day!

  19. Santa
  20. Author Unknown

    Two merry blue eyes

    A very little nose

    A long snowy beard

    And cheeks like a rose

    A round, chubby man

    A big, bulging pack

    Hurrah for old Santa

    We’re glad he’s come back!

  21. Little Pine Tree
  22. Author Unknown

    I’m a little pine tree

    As you can see,

    All the other pine trees

    Are bigger than me.

    Maybe when I grow up

    Then I’ll be

    A great big merry Christmas tree!

  23. Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  24. By Johnny Marks

    Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

    had a very shiny nose.

    And if you ever saw it,

    you would even say it glows.

    All of the other reindeer

    used to laugh and call him names.

    They never let poor Rudolph

    join in any reindeer games.

    Then one foggy Christmas Eve

    Santa came to say:

    “Rudolph with your nose so bright,

    won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

    Then how the reindeer loved him

    and they shouted out with glee:

    “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

    you’ll go down in history!”
