Sing and Learn the Actions!


Dashing through the snow,
in a one-horse open sleigh.
O 'er the fields we go, laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tails ring,
making spirits bright.
What fun it is to ride and sing
a sleighing song tonight, oh!

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

Now the ground is white, go it while you 're young.
Take the girls tonight, sing this sleighing song.
Get a bob-tailed bay,
two-forty for his speed,
and hitch him to an open sleigh
and you will take the lead, oh!


Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!



  • Choose a tambourine, sleigh bells, finger cymbals, shakers or make the Jingle Bell Bracelets (as below in the Visual Art section) and play along to the rhythm (short and long sounds that fit over an underlying beat) or the beat (the steady pulse) of the song.
  • View the video song of Jingle Bells and compare the playing of instruments.
  • Challenge: Sing along to the instrumental version also great for concerts and performances!

Visual Art

  • Make your own 'Jingle Bell Bracelet ' by using bells and a pipe cleaner or plastic string. You can use more than one bell and have a variety of different sizes. Thread the bells onto a pipe cleaner or plastic string and then twist the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form a circle. Fit to wrist size.


  • Pretend you are riding around in a sleigh. Teacher plays a beat with one of the instruments as suggested in the Music section. Vary the tempo - fast, medium or slow and children ride around on their sleigh being aware of their own 'space bubble. '
