Santa's count down ~ counting song fingerplay


Sing this little finger play when Christmas is approaching. Sing it very quietly and count one finger for each day that's left. On the 24th, wake up Santa as loudly as you like!

Sing to the tune of Frere Jacques:

Santa's sleeping, (close eyes and put hands to cheek) Santa's sleeping,

Hear him snore (snore), Hear him snore (snore),

Count the days to Christmas, (touch the tip of each finger on each beat)

Count the days to Christmas,

Just 10 more, (waggle all fingers)

Just 10 more.

Santa's sleeping, (close eyes and put hands to cheek) Santa's sleeping,

Hear him snore (snore), Hear him snore (snore),

Count the days to Christmas, (touch the tip of each finger on each beat)

Count the days to Christmas,

Just 9 more, (waggle nine fingers)

Just 9 more.

Santa's sleeping…

Count the days to Christmas... (touch the tip of each finger on each beat)

Just 8 more, (waggle eight fingers)

Just 8 more… (continue)

…Just 1 more, (waggle one finger)

Just 1 more. Shhhhhhh

WAKE UP, SANTA! (Clap hands, wave arms, shout, toot horns!!!)
