The third one said, “Ring me last.”
(Hold up three fingers.)

The forth one said, “I’m like a chime.”

Let’s All Do a Little Clapping

(Tune: We Wish You a Merry Christmas)

Let’s all do a little clapping

Let’s all do a little clapping

Let’s all do a little clapping

And spread Christmas cheer.

(Jumping, bending, twirling, sitting)
 

presentChristmas Presents
See the presents by the Christmas tree.
(Hands in sweeping motion.)
Some for you (Point to children.)
And some for me. (Point to self.)
Long ones, (Hands spread wide apart.)
Tall ones, (Measure from the floor.) S
hort ones, too. (Hands close together.)
And here is a round one (Make circle with arms.) Wrapped in blue.
