♫ It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! ♫
I don't know about you, but I am getting into the Christmas spirit. And with only a few weeks left in the year, I'm sure some of you are into Christmas songs full-swing. If not, don't stress! It's never too late to teach a new song for the holidays! I LOVE this song that was published in The Friend a couple of years ago. It's catchy, they lyrics are simple, and you can teach it really easily with the flip chart or just a few props (or combine the chart with props, which is what I would do. But that's just me!).
Here is the sheet music.
Here is the flip chart.
Here are a few things you could use:
Box labeled "Ornaments" - keep all of your items in the box, to stay organized!
Small Christmas tree (to place the ornaments on, of course)
Picture of shepherds (p. 4 in flip chart)
Angel tree topper
Silver star (if you don't have one, just cover a cardboard star with foil)
Picture of star of Bethlehem (p. 8 in flip chart)
Package wrapped in red paper
Picture of Savior
Evergreen sprig or bough (pass around so they can feel and smell it)
Jesus in the manger piece from a nativity scene
This may not be the most appropriate song for a Sacrament Meeting number, but it is a great one for the kids to learn to connect a few secular symbols with gospel meaning, especially tying into the Savior. Let me know how it goes!
What songs are you teaching for Christmas? Any fun plans?
