Christmas

Reindeer Poky

(sung to the tune of “The Hokey Poky”)

You put your antlers in. You put your antlers out.
You put you antlers in and you shake them all about.
You do the Reindeer Poky and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!
You put your hooves in….
You put your red nose in….
You put your fluffy tail in…
You put your reindeer body in…

You Are My Reindeer

Tune: You Are My Sunshine

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
You make me angry when you won’t mind.
You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
Please don’t run away again!

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
What will I do with all of you?
Santa will need you on Christmas Eve.
I can’t train you, my wild reindeer.

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
I’m learning to be so kind to you.
We are becoming very good friends.
Santa will be so proud of you.

Old St. Nicholas

(tune: Old McDonald had a farm)

Old St. Nicholas had a tree (form tree with arms)
Ho, ho ho ho ho!
And on that tree he had some horns (blow horns)
Ho ho ho ho ho
With a toot toot here and a toot toot there
Here a toot There a toot
Every where a toot toot

candy canes——-yum-yum
drums——-boom-boom
bells———ring ring
birds——peep peep
stars——twinkle twinkle
snowflakes——-flutter flutter

Where is Santa?

(Sung to the 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 belly shape!)
Merry, Merry Christmas! Merry, Merry, Christmas!
(keep arms up through the rest of the song!)
Ho! Ho! Ho!, Ho! Ho! Ho!

Five Little Christmas Trees

Five little Christmas trees (Hold up five fingers.)
Stood all alone. (Stand up straight, arms at sides.)
Their hearts were very sad, (Point to heart; make sad face.)
For they hadn’t found a home. (Shake head no, while looking sad.)
Chop! went the ax. (Pretend to swing ax.)
Down fell one tree. (“Fall” to the ground.)
And off it went with a happy family. (March in place, smiling.)

Four little Christmas trees
Stood all alone….

One little Christmas tree
Stood all alone.
Its heart was very sad,
For it hadn’t found a home.
Chop! went the ax.
Down fell the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.
