Christmas Songs

We think this holiday pretty much has the songs covered, but we do have a few fun tunes of our own to add.

Here’s one to keep your kids moving.

Christmas Hopping Song

Tune: Are You Sleeping?

Hopping candy canes, hopping candy canes,
Hop, hop, hop – hop, hop, hop.
Look at candy canes hopping,
Look at candy canes hopping.
Now they stop. Now they stop.
Add additional verses until your little one is tired out. This may take a while so here are some suggestions.
Hopping- ornaments, elves, reindeer, cookies, bells, stockings, snowflakes

Here’s a fun game to play with your Christmas cookies.

Gingerbread Man

Five little gingerbreads lying on a pan.
The first jumped up and away he ran.
Catch me, catch me, if you can.
You can’t catch me.
I’m the gingerbread man!
Count down until all the cookies are eaten/passed out. 

At Christmas time, trees of any size can be transformed into a twinkling wonder.

Pine Tree

Tune: I’m a Little Tea Pot

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!

Winter Session Theme Songs

There are so many, but we'll be singing these catchy tunes quite a bit throughout the season!

Snow Has Fallen

Snow has fallen, snow has fallen.
How do I know? How do I know?
I saw it on the sidewalks.
I saw it on the sidewalks.
That’s how I know. That’s how I know.
Tune: Are You Sleeping?
Variations: Insert “on the: roof tops, trees, cars, etc”)

I’m A Little Snowman

I’m a little snowman round and fat.
Here are my buttons, here is my hat.
When the sun comes out, I can-not stay.
I just simply melt away.
Tune: I’m A Little Tea Pot


Snow, snow, see the snow
Falling to the ground.
Take some snow and pack it tight
Make it nice and round.
Roll, roll, roll the snow
Roll it on the ground.
Keep on rolling; keep on going
‘Till it’s big and round!
Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Snowflakes Are Falling Down

Snowflakes are falling down.
Snowflakes are falling down.
Snowflakes are falling down.
I see snowflakes on the ground!
Variations: Twirling ‘round, jumping down, spinning ‘round, etc
Great song for getting those winter wiggles out!

It Is Snowing

It is snowing, It is snowing,
All around, all around.
Soft and quiet snowflakes.
Soft and quiet snowflakes.
Not a sound, not a sound.
Tune: Are You Sleeping
