Sound Discrimination: Let the children play with different kinds of bells (sleigh bells, dinner bells, cow bells, bird cage bells, etc.). Encourage them to listen to the unique sound each bell makes. Help them decide on a name to distinguish each bell. Then play a game with the children. Have them close their eyes while you ring one of the bells. When they open their eyes, ask them to point to and name the bell they think you just rang.
Bell Ring: Hang a bell up high. Give the children beanbags (or socks rolled into balls). Then let them take turns tossing the beanbags at the bell to make it ring.
Jingle All the Way: (Sung to: "Jingle Bells")
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to play
My jingle bells today.
Shake them fast, shake them slow,
Shake them loud and clear.
Oh, what fun it is to shake
My bells for all to hear.
