Finger Play and Poem
Come and trim our Christmas tree (form triangle with fingers)
Till it glistens bright.
First we’ll string some paper chains (pretend to decorate tree)
Then some tinsel bright.
Now for color hang some balls (form circle with hands)
And a twinkly light (open and close fingers)
So we can dance and sing
On a Merry Christmas night.
Let’s decorate the Christmas tree. We’ll make it bright and gay.
But I will surely need your help to make it look that way.
Place red balls everywhere, then some of pretty blue.
Yellow adds bright color – purple and orange too.
Add a splash of pink and then some of green.
Now isn’t it the grandest tree that you have ever seen?
