23 Lovely Christmas Songs For Children

Jingle Bells 

If you’re searching for traditional Christmas songs for children, then Jingle Bells has to be on the top of the list. It’s a kid favorite for its fun lyrics where they can yell “hey” at the top of their lungs. Add in some fun bells for your little one to shake to increase the magic of this exciting Christmas song.

We have selected two options for you to choose to listen to. The original one and another one sung by little ones. Enjoy:

Twelve Days Of Christmas

The Twelve Days Of Christmas is an iconic song that is fun to sing since mostly everyone gets the words mixed up. Your family will find themselves rolling on the floor laughing as you try to remember how many pipers should be piping and how many geese are laying. An added plus for this song is its ability to help your kids learn their counting skills. Why not have them sing the numbers as you try to remember which action goes with it.

Find Christmas Elf And Snowman

Many families have a sneaky little elf that joins them in the weeks leading up to Christmas, so sing this song with your kids to help tie the theme together. They’ll have so much fun searching for all the missing items in grandpa’s barn in the interactive Christmas song and game.
