Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells - Christmas Songs for Kids




Do you find it hard to get visuals and recordings for different kids songs?






I have always found this a problem so I am sharing songs on the blog that I have used with children and providing you with


Visuals 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make one) 


Words   
(chords also available)


Recordings  
(mp3 or video to learn the song) 



Then if you would like to download the visual of the song there will be a link provided to my creation, or I will direct you to where else you can find it.  

There will also be links for PDF's Fred has created for the words and chords. 



This month I am taking the theme of


CHRISTMAS


This song I have chosen is 


Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells


Everyone knows the tune of Jingle Bells so that means this will be an easy song to learn.

Many many years ago we worked with CEF Good News Clubs and this was one of the Christmas songs they gave us visuals for and so we learned a simple jolly song for kids and have used it in different kids meetings in schools and churches and homes for several years. 

We took this as one of the 2 Kids Christmas Songs that were included in our first

 Songs for Christmas 

Last year Fred & I went live on Facebook each night to get our friends and followers to sing 
Christmas Songs with us and have a little laugh as things don't always go as planned 
or we just had a happy memory of a song.
And plans are in progress for the same this year.


You can see all those live videos plus other post and videos at





VISUALS


The words were originally on different coloured bells






which you could draw by hand and cut out on different coloured card.

Then some (very happy to help) children could hold up for the others.





POWERPOINT


In later years with more opportunity to use projection on screens I designed powerpoints and pictures 










You can Download a copy of these four pictures for printing out HERE 





WORDS

Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells
Ring them out today
Christ was born in Bethlehem
To to take our sins away

Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells
Ring them out today
Tell all the world of Jesus' love
This happy Christmas Day

Born in Bethlehem

Notes:
I believe this was written by someone in Child Evangelism Fellowship many years ago but I don't think it is available as a printed song by them now.   



I Hope you enjoy the song and this is a help to you.
