Christmas Tree Toddler Lesson Plan 20
Manage Christmas high spirits with a ton of active songs. There are a lot of hours between Santa appearing in shops and the actual Christmas Day in all its religious and secular manifestations. So to keep you in top gear, here are 11 songs, each with a specially themed activity with a lot of emphasis on Christmas trees and Christmas bells — very concrete! And to round it out, there’s an ancient nursery rhyme about a Christmas plum pie and a cheeky new song with funny actions written by Carol. So much in the music stocking!
And to add a restful moment of respect, there’s a beautiful Czech lullaby for a baby, Rocking Carol, that can be sung to the baby Jesus if you have a manger scene on display. There’s also an instrument song that tells toddlers exactly what to do with each instrument. Makes your job easy doesn’t it? You can do this one with the parents playing and singing along too — Christmas concert sorted.
We sing Jingle Bells of course, and we also teach you many ways to enjoy Christmas trees as the title suggests. Don’t just decorate Christmas trees, sing about them all through December.
