Christmas with preschool children
 

Hello everybody! Smile

I īm thinking about what to do with my youngest children for Christmas (3-5 years old), it has to be something very simple and brief. I need some ideas about what can they do, taking into account that their parents will be present. I īm open to any idea. THANKS in advance! Wink

Let them sing! Jingle Bells or short easy carols. And you may ask parents to bring sweets with them to give to your little carolsingers.

Why don īt you get them to make some bells by taking those wooden īice lolly ī sticks you buy in a craft shop and tying the bells onto them with a nice red ribbon and they can shake that while they sing jingle bells and then they can also make a decoration each and you can maybe get them to go in groups of 3 and say a line of a christmas carol and place their decoration on the tree and the next 3 etc and finally you can light the tree with lights and they can sing their jingle bells....some ideas
G īluck ;o)

I teach preschool children too! For Xmas I will tell my students the story of the Gingerbread Man and together we will prepare the gingerbread man biscuits at school!
I have prepared some flashcards and some dices that I will use to teach and revise the vocabulary! The story can be played by the kids because it is very simple. Is you have many children you can make them act in groups of three cows, three Gingerbread man and so on!
Have a look at my printables and if you see anything I can send by PM!
I also have very nice and not traditionals Xmas songs that can be performed!
 The songs are to heavy and I must send them by personal mail... [email protected]
Hope this hepls you!
Take care,
Lisa

We sing the song that has the rhydm of frere jacques:

Father xmas
Father xmas
he got stuck
he got stuck
coming down the chimney
"
what bad luck
what bad luck!
 
For children at this ages miming and moving is really important to understand the meaning of the song and that makes the song funny for the parents as well!
