Family traditions are so important at Christmas time. Putting up the Christmas decorations, making the Christmas pudding, and singing Christmas songs at home are all part of the fun for many families. Singing regularly with your children creates a warm feeling of love and security. It is a lovely thing to do around Christmas time, to strengthen your family bond, and to make wonderful memories for you and them! Here is my list of the top 10 Christmas songs for kids:

1. When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney

Exaggerate the sneezes, making them all different pitches, volumes, and lengths – this is one of the best Christmas songs to get some laughs from little ones.

When santa got stuck the chimney he began to shout
“You girls and boys won’t get any toys
If you don’t pull me out
My beard is black
There’s soot in my sack
My nose is tickling too!
When santa got stuck up the chimney
A-choo, a-choo, a-choo!

2. Jingle Bells

Shake your sleigh bells and sing at the top of your voices!

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way 
Bells on bobtail ring’
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
.

Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh
.

3. Little Donkey

Any children in nativities are sure to sing this at some point! Its gentle melody and simple words make it ideal for little voices.

Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load
Been a long time, little donkey, through the winters night
don’t give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehems in sight

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey, had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way
Little donkey, little donkey, journey’s end is near
There are wiseman waiting for a sign to bring them here

Do not falter little donkey, there’s a star ahead
It will guide you, little donkey, to a cattle shed

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey, had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Mary, safely on her way
Little donkey, carry Mary, safely on her way

4. Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer

Try this version, complete with actions, for a fun twist on this classic.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 
Had a very shiny nose, 
And if you ever saw it, 
You could even say it glows. (Like a lightbulb)
All of the other reindeer 
Used to laugh and call him names; (Like Pinocchio)
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games. (Like Monopoly)

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say(Ho ho ho)
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then how the reindeer loved him 
As they shouted out with glee, (Yipee!)
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You’ll go down in history.”

5. Santa Clause is Coming to Town

Guarantee your child’s place on Santa’s Nice List by showing them ways to be kind over Christmas.  Take some biscuits round to an elderly neighbour, donate some of their old toys to make space for new ones, and remind them that Father Christmas is always watching with this song!

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
He’s gonna find out
Who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

6. Frosty the Snowman

Sing this with your children and get them to listen very carefully to the lyrics. Make Xmas cards with Frosty on the front, complete with ‘corncob pipe and a button nose…’

Frosty the snowman 
Was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow 
But the children know 
How he came to life one day.

There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around.

O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”

Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.”

7. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

Very silly and very fun – this will capture your older child’s imagination brilliantly.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

She’d been drinking too much egg nog,
And we’d begged her not to go.
But she forgot her medication,
And she staggered through the door into the snow.

When they found her Christmas morning,
At the scene of the attack.
She had hoof prints on her forehead,
And incriminating Claus marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Now we’re all so proud of Grandpa,
He’s been taking this so well.
See him in there watching football,
Drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Mel.

It’s not Christmas without Grandma.
All the family’s dressed in black.
And we just can’t help but wonder:
Should we open up her gifts or send them back? (send them back!)

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig.
And the blue and silver candles,
That would just have matched the hair in Grandma’s wig.

I’ve warned all my friends and neighbours.
” Better watch out for yourselves.”
They should never give a license,
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house, Christmas eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.
Merry Christmas!

8. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree 

Do as the lyric suggests, and rock around your Christmas tree! This rock and roll classic is perfect for jumping around to and burning off lots of energy.

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
A mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
and we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear, voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old Fashion way

9. Silent Night

One of the more gentle Christmas songs, try to incorporate this into your child’s bedtime routine. Swap it with one of their lullabies to help soothe them and calm them down after all the excitement felt at this time of year.

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.

10. The Greatest Gift

A new song by James Corden for 2016, this is used in the Sainsbury’s Xmas advert. Watch the video together – it’ll get stuck in your head, and will remind you all about the things that really matter this Christmas.

Another year over.
Where do they go to?
It’s a mystery.

Now it’s December.
So much to remember
Before Christmas Eve.

I’m already late,
And my train is delayed,
Disruption on the line.

I race into work,
And the place is berserk,
Yes, it’s Christmas time.

I wanna find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
But right now,
I don’t have time to breathe.

The streets are chaotic,
The shops idiotic,
There’s a queue for the queue.

A granny’s takin’ her time,
At the front of the line..

(Granny speaks: 91.. 92..)

There’s a party at work,
And the manager’s twerkin’ inappropriately.

To top off the day,
Another train is delayed,
It’s a catastrophe.

(Couple sing: Christmas time is here)

I’d like to spend the time,
With the ones I love so dear.

I’m trying to find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
I don’t have time,
There’s only one of me.

Tell me how do people do it all?
I’ll never get it done.
If only there was a way to be
In two places at once.

(James speaks: Wait, that gives me an idea!)

If I wasn’t alone,
What if I had a clone?
I could do so much more.

It would all be a breeze,
With a couple more me’s
I’d have time galore.

I wanna find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift I can give is me.

Now I can meet with the boss,
And empty out my inbox,
All simultaneously.

Leaving me time to spend
With my family and friends,
Where I wanna be.

I wanna find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift that I can give is me.

I wanna find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift that I can give is me.

I wanna find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift that I can give,
The greatest gift the I can give..

(Dog tries: The greatest gift the I can give.)

Is, me!
