Easy Christmas song to teach 2 and a half year olds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So we have this Christmas concert coming up on December 13th. We have to teach them a Spanish(We are doing Feliz Navidad with the fours) and a Sign Language(we found a really easy one they got down pat now). Now all we have to do is pick an easy Holiday song for them to learn. We only have a little over 2 weeks left to teach them. We thought about Rudolph or Frosty. Does anyone have a good idea on how to teach them or an easier song?

By the way, my kids are 2 and a half and 3 years old and we have 23 of them

Thanks for any opinions!

What about Jingle bells? That one is simple and repetitive.

Dradel Dradel Dradel? It's a Hannuka song, but I know that when I was in school we all learned it (I think there was 1 Jewish student in my entire year) and because most of us were Christain, which is descended from Judiasm, it was never clear to us why we didn't celebrant Hannuka too. We did get dradels to play with one year, which was pretty cool.

Anyway, at two, none of this is too confusing and Dradel Dradel Dradel is really easy to learn.

Apol. for my spelling. My dyslexia is particularly bad today.

I believe it's Dreidle. . .LOL

I agree with Jingle Bells - or even Santa Claus is Coming to town. Frosty has way to many verses and Rudolph's melody is pretty adjunct. (not that jingle bells isn't!)

Jingle Bells.

Doubt they will be able to remember more than just the "Jingle Bells" part, but that's pretty much the bulk of the song anyway, hehe

Silent Night, if religious songs are okay. We did that in sign language in high school combined with the younger kids. Granted I know nothing about toddlers! Or go with the traditional Sunday School song for the really little kids- Away in a Manger.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas is repetitive, too, and makes a good finale.

Well Jingle Bells is out since Kindergarten is doing that and Silent Night is out since the 5's are doing that We thought about We wish you a Merry Christmas and we actually did think about doing a Hanakkah song but there are no Jewish children in our school at all. So I don't know. We wish you a Merry Christmas might be a good one though.....

Another one is "Deck the Halls". If an adult or older child sang the major parts, they could probably manage the "fa la la la la la" part... or even just "la la la la la" but they would feel like they were participating.

Another vote for "Away in a Manger"

What about "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". That's pretty easy and not a lot of different words. Or "The Chipmunk Song"
