Snowmen, reindeer, elves, Christmas trees; here is a round-up of all kinds of Christmas games and worksheets I’ve made for my students over the years. Some are for beginners and some are for older students and teens. Some can be modified and played with any level. Some of these are games I made for group lessons and some are for teacher and student. Some are in black and white.
I know it is very hard to search through all these games. If you want a game for a certain age group or level, just ask in the comment section here and if one of the games fits, I’ll let you know, to the best of my ability.
You are welcome to print these out and use in your classroom, music lessons, or home. Please do not redistribute to other teachers or parents, but send a link instead.
The links below will take you to the page on this blog that has the instructions to the games, and then a link to the PDF. Be sure to only print what you need and to set your printer to landscape orientation if the printable is in landscape.
A week or so ago I listed all the Christmas music on my site. A few days ago I listed some Hanukkah material. Today I am posting all the Christmas games and worksheets as well as some winter material. There are two new games I haven’t posted yet, and I hope to do that soon! Please inform me of any broken links. Thanks!
Reindeer and Elves Keyboard Race – A Christmas version of my Keyboard Race game.
Snowflake Keyboard Race – The same game as above, but it is good for a winter game with no Christmas symbols.
Snowman and Reindeer Note Game – Students love all the color. Print on photo paper for the best effect.
Snowman and Reindeer Interval Game – A good game for reviewing intervals. Two or more can play.
Cards (Interval) for the Snowman and Reindeer Game – You can use your own interval cards for the interval game, or print these.
Snowman and Reindeer Rhythm Game – This is part of a 3 game set. This version is for rhythm. Teacher and student can play.
Cards for Snowman and Reindeer Rhythm Game – These are rhythm cards for the Snowman and Reindeer Rhythm Game above.
Snowflake Bingo Game – This bingo game is good for Christmas group lessons. Uses all the notes on the grand staff, and no ledger lines except middle C. This is a good holiday game if you have a diverse studio.
Christmas Tune Challenge – I use this game with teens. You might want to read my blog post about how I play it.
Silly Sentences – Another game for a teen group lesson. Some of the cards are harder than others, so it can be played in mixed groups.
Peppermint Notes – Use (wrapped) peppermints for “notes.”
Keyboard Ornament Bingo – a Bingo game for students who haven’t learned notes on the staff.
Musical Christmas Lights – a Bingo game for symbols and vocabulary words. It’s a great way to study theory vocabulary. There is both a B&W version and a colorful one that does not use as much ink as my old version.
Ornament Notes – a black and white coloring sheet for very easy notes on the staff
Christmas Ornament Notes on the Staff – Beginners write the names of notes on Christmas ornaments on the staff. The notes are in a row, so it is a good way to introduced notes on the staff.
Ornament Notes Mixed Up on the Staff – This is the same as the previous printable, but the notes are mixed up on the staff, so it is harder.
Gingerboy Keys – Beginners draw a line from the ginger boy to piano keys.
Draw the Ornaments – Students draw note on a Christmas tree staff.
Light Up the Tree – This is a (mostly) black and white coloring sheet. The worksheet tells students what color each light, which contains a note of the staff, should be.
Christmas Music Symbols Match – This is a matching sheet for beginners. It has US terms. If anyone wants a UK version, tell me what changes to make and I will post it on my UK page.
Vocabulary: Christmas or Music – This is a redo of an old worksheet. Students have to distinguish between Christmas words from around the world and music vocabulary words.
Christmas Train – Students use finger numbers and no staff on this composing printable.
Christmas is Coming – I wrote an 8 measure rhyme of students to compose a melody. The rhythm in written in above the staff.
