Canzoni di Natale in inglese per bambini piccoli (da 1 a 3 anni)

  • Jingle Bells : Cominciamo dalla più celebre delle canzoni natalizie in inglese, conosciuta in tutto il mondo: Jingle bells, letteralmente “suonate campanelle” fa riferimento alle campanelle di una slitta che sfreccia sulla neve. È anche una delle più semplici, quindi particolarmente adatta per i bimbi più piccoli.

Jingle Bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle Bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way,
Bells on bob-tail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight
Jingle bells…

  • Little snowflake : Little snowflake è una canzone lenta e dolce, ideale da utilizzare come ninna nanna nel periodo natalizio. È estremamente semplice, quindi adatta anche per i bimbi molto piccoli, e aiuta a imparare le parti del corpo: il fiocco di neve, infatti, ad ogni nuova strofa cambia posto e cade prima sul naso, poi sulla mano, poi sulla testa…

    Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake. Little snowflake falling from the sky. Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
    Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
    falling, falling, falling, falling... falling on my head. Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
    Little snowflake falling from the sky.
    Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
    Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
    falling, falling, falling, falling...
    falling on my nose. Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
    Little snowflake falling from the sky.
    Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
    Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
    falling, falling, falling, falling...
    falling in my hand. Falling on my head.
    Falling on my nose.
    Falling in my hand.
    Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake...


  • S-A-N-T-A : Passiamo a una canzone molto divertente dedicata a Babbo Natale. Ad ogni strofa, una lettera del nome Santa viene sostituita da un battito di mani: così puoi mettere alla prova i tuoi bimbi!

    white beard,
    twinkle in his eye.
    Santa is his name-o.
    S-A-N-T-A
    S-A-N-T-A
