BELL SONGS
 

SILVER BELLS
Tune:  “Jingle Bells”

Silver Bells, silver bells
Ring them loud and clear.
Silver Bells, silver bells
Bringing Christmas cheer.

Ring them high, ring them low,
Ring them ‘round and ‘round.
What a lovely time of year
When silver bells you hear.
                    Jean Warren
 

                       

I LOVE BELLS
Tune:  “Three Blind Mice”

Bells, bells, bells,
I love bells,
All kinds of bells,
They’re so swell.
Some are small and “ting-a-ling”.
Some have handles that you swing.
Some are big, you strike to ring.
I love bells,
All kinds of bells.
                  Jean Warren

                       
 
CHRISTMAS BELLS

Tune:  “Oh, Christmas Tree”

O Christmas bells, O Christmas bells,
We love to hear you ringing.
O Christmas bells, O Christmas bells,
You make us feel like singing.

You sing to us of colored lights.
You sing to us of Christmas night.
O Christmas bells, O Christmas bells,
We love to hear you ringing.

TAP, TAP, TAP YOUR HAND
Tune:  “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

Tap, tap, tap your hand
With your bell today.
Tap the beat – of the song.
Tap your bell this way.

Tap, tap, tap your hand
With your bell today.
Let’s make music with our hands
Then put our bells away.
Jean Warren

This song assumes that children are holding tapping bells
Or wearing bell mits.

 
BELLS ARE RINGING
Tune:  “Frere Jacques”

Bells are ringing,
Bells are ringing.
Ding, ding, dong.
Ding, ding, dong

Happy little bells,
Happy little bells.
All day long,
Ring their song!
Jean Warren
 
 
ALL AROUND THE CIRCLE
Tune:  “Pop, Goes The Weasel”

All around the circle today
The children sit and sing.
Then they pick up their bells
And ring and ring and ring!
Jean Warren
 
LITTLE BELL
Tune:  “This Old Man”

(Children Ask)
Little bell, little bell
If we ask you will you tell,
Why you always seem to chime
When it’s close to Music Time?

(Bell Answers)
I can hear, the children sing
Then I know it’s time to ring.
With a ting-a-ling-a-ling, listen to me chime.
Can I join your Music Time?
Jean Warren

 

COW BELLS
Tune:  “Down At The Station”

Down at the barnyard
Early in the morning.
See the big cows
Standing in a row.

See the dairy farmer
Give each cow a bell.
So wherever they go
He can always tell.
Jean Warren
 
RING, RING, RING YOUR BELL
Tune:  “Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Ring, ring, ring your bell
Ring it up, then down.
First, you swing, then, you ring
Then you - put the bell down.
Jean Warren
(Children stand at table and take turns
picking up a bell with handle and ringing it.)


 
ONE BELL RINGER
Give each child a small safe bell and have them stand in a circle. Then start reciting:

One bell ringer, walking through town.
(Choose one child to walk around the circle.)
Ringing his bell, up and down.  
(Child rings his bell up and down)
Continue, by choosing another child to also start around the circle while, everyone says:

Two bell ringers, walking through town.
Ringing their bells, up and down.

Continue until everyone has been chosen and is walking around the outer circle ringing their bell.

 
BELL CLOCK

Here is another bell activity.  Have twelve children stand in a clock circle. Give them each a bell.  Hold up a large moving hand clock. 
Recite the following:

One o’clock, all is well.  (Place the hands of the clock to say one o’clock.)
First bell ringer, ring your bell.  (First child rings his bell.)
           
Two o’clock, all is well.  (Move hands of clock to say two o’clock.)Second bell ringer, ring your bell.  (Next child rings her bell.)

Continue around the hands of the clock.

Variation:  You can do this activity with less children.  Just have children stand in a line.

RING FOR BREAKFAST
Tune: "Down By The Station"

Down in the barnyard
Early in the morning.
See the little farmer
Ringing his big bell.

See the great big cows
Come for a breakfast treet.
Ring, ring, ring, ring
Watch them eat!
