My Christmas Tree! Easy Christmas Songs For Kids
I’ve waited for my Christmas tree, Christmas tree, Christmas tree,
I’ve waited for my Christmas tree, all year lo-ng,
And now it’s time to go and choose, go and choose, go and choose,
And now it’s time to go and choose, our Christmas tree!
We’ll bring it home to decorate, decorate, decorate,
We’ll bring it home to decorate, our Christmas tree!
With tinsel and some fairy lights, fairy lights, fairy lights
With tinsel and some fairy lights, our Christmas tree!
It’s the finest Christmas tree, Christmas tree, Christmas tree,
It’s the finest Christmas tree I’ve ever seen!
(sung to the tune of London Bridge is Falling Down – print My Christmas Tree Sheet Music)
This song is very easy to pick up, as it borrows it’s tune from London Bridge is Falling Down. It has easy words with a lot of repetition, which are just perfect for toddlers. Small children love repetition, and while providing invaluable practice for speech development, it also builds a firm foundation for early literacy and numeracy skills, with rhythm, rhyme and patterns and sequences.
A lovely idea for an Advent craft, is to make a felt board Christmas tree, which kids can decorate over and over while singing the song. They are very simple to make; all you need is a cork board, spray adhesive, assorted felt and some added sparkles. While excellent for practising fine motor skills, they provide hours of absorbing fun too!
