Christmas Program

Later this month we'll be having our Christmas program. We do a very quick little program with a few songs and then I give the kids their gifts and we have cookies and punch. The whole thing takes less than an hour, tops. My group is small and a very wide age range (2 - 8 yrs) These are some of the songs we'll be singing.

Where is Santa?
(tune: Are You Sleeping?)
Where is Santa? Where is Santa?
(hands behind back)
Here I am! Here I am!
(arms out in front making a big belly shape)
Merry merry Christmas! Merry merry Christmas!
Ho! Ho! Ho!, Ho! Ho! Ho!

For this one we paint a paper plate blue and glue snowflakes to it, then act it out.
Shake Your Flake
Shake your flake high,
Shake your flake low.
Shake your flake to and fro!

Shake your flake to the ceiling,
Shake your flake to the floor.
Shake your flake some more, more, more!

Shake your flake while your walking,
Shake your flake while you hop.
Shake your flake again, and then we.....
STOP!

S-A-N-T-A
(tune: Bingo)
There is a fat and bearded man,
and Santa is his name-o.
S-a-n-t-a, S-a-n-t-a, S-a-n-t-a
and Santa is his name-o!

Rudolph's Workout
(tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes)
Hooves, belly, antlers nose,
antlers, nose.
Hooves, belly, antlers nose,
antlers, nose.
Left hoof, right hoof,
strike a pose! (we strike a silly pose)
Hooves, belly, antlers nose,
antlers, nose!

Shake Your Fluffy Tail
Reindeer, reindeer, shake your fluffy tail.
(shake your tail)
Reindeer, reindeer, shake your fluffy tail.
(shake your tail)
Fly up high onto the roof,
(arms up like flying)
Stomp the snowflakes off your hoof.
(stomp feet)
Reindeer, reindeer, shake your fluffy tail.
(shake your tail)

For this one we have jingle bell bracelets we shake to act it out
Jingle Bell
(tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)
Jingle jingle little bell,
I can ring my little bell.
Ring it high,
Ring it low,
Ring it fast,
Ring it slow.
Jingle jingle little bell,
I can ring my little bell
Ring it left,
Ring it right,
Even ring it out of sight.
Jingle jingle little bell,
I can ring my little bell.
