The Advent Song
Tune of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”
Advent is a time to wait, (hold hand up as you say “wait)
Not quite time to celebrate, (shake head and wag finger from side to side)
Count the candles 1 by 1, (put 4 fingers up, one at a time)
Until Advent time is done. (wave hands, palms down)
Day by day we work and play, (stack fist on top of fist, back and forth)
To prepare for Christmas day! (put arms on shoulders and hug yourself)
(Updated with hand motions from a reader- Thanks!) Songs are such a great way to minister to kids! It doesn’t involve any prep work, supplies, clean up, etc. Also, songs really stick in kid’s brains and we can reach them with such great information.
How do you get the idea of “waiting” during Advent across to your kids? Tell us in the comments!Pin It
