Christmas Handbells for Children

Last night, I had my Christmas piano recital, and I left my little handbells out, along with some simple music I put together so the kids could play around. I’m amazed how even the littlest kids can figure out these bells because of the colors. In fact, one little boy (6yo) who is not a piano student yet, and who has not done anything with music, picked up the bells and started playing “Jingle Bells” by himself. They love it!

Several parents have asked about these bells and the music, so I thought I’d share here.

I bought a pair of simple rainbow-colored handbells years ago, like the ones found here. There are 8 bells ranging from C to C, and from red to pink.

And here’s the free music I put together.

Songs are:

  • Jolly Old St. Nicholas
  • Jingle Bells
  • The First Noel
  • Joy to the World
  • Angels We Have Heard on High
  • Away in a Manger/Cradle Song
  • Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer

So if you have kids, try it out. It’s seriously the easiest thing ever, and they love it!
