Activity: Ring those Christmas Bells
tune:"She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain"

 

(Loudly)
We will ring those Christmas bells so loud and clear.
We will ring those Christmas bells so loud and clear.
We will hear the dingle, dingle
When they jingle, jingle, jingle.
Yes, we'll ring those Christmas bells so loud and clear.

(Softly) We will ring those Christmas bells so quietly...

(loud and deliberate) We will ring those Christmas bells so fast and loud...

(gave the kids bells to shake, they always like it when they can make noise!)
