Here’s an idea for any Primary music people out there. It’s called Merry Musical Mittens.
The long and short of it. Gather string, a few binder clips, mittens and some objects to place in each mitten. Then the kids can come up and choose a mitten and you sing the song that corresponds. SO EASY and fun! Here is a close up of what my objects were:
1. ) Samuel Tells of Baby Jesus
2. ) Once there was a Snowman
3.) Christmas Bells
(* Special Note when the child pulls out the bell don’t exclaim “Look it’s a Jingle Bell!” It makes it a little more challenging to direct the children to the right song!)
4.) Do as I’m doing with Christmas action cards
1.) Away in a Manger
2.) Star were Gleaming

The idea for Merry Musical Mittens come from a blog called the Beehive Messages you can find the exact post here. She has a very festive cute rendition with a take home activity as well.
