 Christmas Songs For Kids

Over 80 Christmas songs for kids and adults!  Celebrate the season with these fun songs and fingerplays.

This is an Australian version of Jingle bells.

Dashing over waves at pool or crowded beach, Over the towels, we go with sunscreen just in reach.

Bells on mobiles ring,

Amazing mozzies bite.

Oh what fun it is to sing a Christmas song tonight!

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Christmas in Australia on a red hot summers day-HEY!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way Christmas in Australia on a red hot summers day- HEY!


Oh where, oh where did the little elves go?

Oh where, oh where can they be?

They were making the gifts and packing the sleigh.

I hope there’s a gift for me.

Oh where, oh where did Santa Claus go?

Oh where, oh where can he be?

He was reading his list and checking it twice.

Oh, I hope my name he’ll see.


A song that gets the children involved:

He wears a red red coat, and

a red red hat,

his boots are black

and he carries a sack

he’s got a twinkle in his eyes

and a friendly smile

and his name is….

SANTA CLAUS (children to shout his name) and his name is….

SANTA CLAUS (children to shout his name)


Father Christmas

(tune: Frere Jacques)

Father Christmas, Father Christmas

He got stuck, he got stuck

Coming down the chimney, Coming down the chimney What bad luck, what bad luck


5 Little Elves

5 Little Elves Hitching up the sleigh, 1 got up and ran away, Rudolph called Santa and Santa said, “All my reindeer must be fed!” (continue on until there is only 1 elf left…)

1 Little Elf hitching up the sleigh, he got up and ran away, Rudolph called Santa and heard him say, “We must get ready for Christmas Day!”


Tune: Twinkle twinkle little star

Twinkle twinkle Christmas lights

Father Christmas came last night,

Down the chimney with the toys,

Woke me up with all the NOISE!

Twinkle, twinkle Christmas lights,

Father Christmas came last night.
