Christmas songs for Kinder

Christmas is around the corner and I know that Childcare centres and Kinders are gearing up for their Christmas concerts to showcase to the parents what their children have been learning all year long.

Here are some of our favourites for end of year celebrations.

Ring Those Christmas bell
Instruments: Bells
Sung to the tune “She’ll Be Coming Around the Mountain”
(sing loudly)
We will ring those christmas bells so loud and clear
We will ring those christmas bells so loud and clear
We wil hear the dingle, dingle
when we jingle jingle jingle
We will ring those Christmas bells so loud and clear

(sing softly)
We will ring those Christmas bells so quietly
We will ring those Christmas bells so quietly
We will hear the dingle dingle
When we jingle jingle jingle
We will ring those Christmas bells so quietly

(Sing Fast)
We will ring those Christmas bells so fast and loud
We will ring those Christmas bells so fast and loud
We will hear the dingle dingle
When we jingle jingle jingle
We will ring those Christmas bells s fast and loud

Feliz Navidad
Instrument: eggs
Shake the eggs to the rhythm and rest
Feliz Navidad (rest)
Feliz Navidad (rest)
Feliz Navidad, prospero ano y felicidad
Feliz Navidad (rest)

I want to wish you a merry Christmas
I want to wish you a merry Christmas
I want to wish you a merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart
Repeat

Song: Little Drummer Boy

Teacher sings the call and the children sing the response ” Pa rum pa pum pum”

Come they told me
Pa rum pum pum pum
A new born king to see
Pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring
Pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the king
Pa rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum
So to honor him
Pa rum pum pum pum
When we come
Pum pum pum pum
Pa rum pum pum

This song is particularly impressive when the children chime in with their part. We have also incorporated Instruments for the Kinder age group and has worked beautifully.  Equally the children are impressed with themselves as they sing and make music and preform for their parents.

Christmas is also a great opportunity to showcase all the beautiful songs and musical games that have been sung throughout the year.  I have seen some great ideas over the years, I hope these 3 songs can make your “End of Year” celebrations special.

Happy Music Making
