Making up movements for the Christmas song.


12 sheets of paper
Marker pen


Write on papers the words of the song "Twelve days of Christmas".

Separate children into groups and give out the papers so that each group have some movements to make up. Make sure that all of one group members know what to do when singing the song. Give them about 10 min to prepare.

After children have prepared the movements, gather them all into one circle and put the papers in right order in front of the children so that everyone can sing along without remembering the lyrics.

Start by doing the song slowly at first so that everyone will get familiar with the song and movements and then do it quicker :)
