Christmas Fingerplays

Here are some fun Christmas fingerplays to do with your young child.


Five Little Bells

Five little bells handing in a row.

The first bell said,

Ring me slow.

The second bell said,

Ring me fast.

The third bell said,

Ring me last.

The fourth bell said,

I sound like a chime.

The fifth bell said,

Ring me at Christmas time!


Santa Claus

Down the chimney dear Santa Claus crept,

(Make loose fist with left hand; insert right hand finger into it.)

Into a room where the children slept.

(Place three fingers of right hand on palm of left hand.)

He saw their stockings hung in a line

(suspend three fingers of left hand.)

And he filled them with candies and googies.

(Make motions for filling the stockings.)

Although he counted them: one, two, three...

(Indicate by counting fingers.)

The baby's stocking he could not see.

Ho! Ho! said Santa Claus, that won't do.

So he popped her present right into her shoe.

(Cup left hand and put right hand finger into it.)


5 Little Reindeer

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 little reindeer stand beside the gate.

"Hurry, Santa," said the five,

So we will not be late.

"1, 2, 3, 4, 5 little reindeer," Santa Said,

"Please wait!"

"Wait for three more little reindeer

And then that will make eight!"


Christmas Tree

Here stands a lovely Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree.

(Hold hands up, finger tips touching.)

Here stands a lovely Christmas tree,

So early in the morning.

Here is a horn for the Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree.

(Hold first to mouth and blow.)

Here is a horn for the Christmas tree.

So early in the morning.

Here are the lights for the Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree.

(Flutter fingers.)

Here are the lights for the Christmas tree.

So early in the morning.

Here is a drum for the Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree.

(Beat drum)

Here is a drum for the Christmas tree.

So early in the morning.

Here stands a lovely Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree.

(Hold hands up, fingertips touching.)

Here stands a lovely Christmas tree.

So early in the morning.



The Chimney

Here is a chimney

Here is the top.

Open the lid

And out Santa will pop!


Christmas Presents

See all the presents by the Christmas tree.

Some are for you, and some are for me.

Long ones, tall ones, short ones too.

And here is a round one wrapped in blue!
