Lots of Christmas Printables

Christmas Printables

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!

Games

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.

Vocabulary Cards for Silly Sentences

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.

Worksheets

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.

Beginning Composing

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.

Christmas Lights

Musical Christmas Lights Musical Christmas Lights

Musical Christmas Lights is an update of my old Christmas game. This is a bingo-type game for students who can identify notes up to sixteenth notes. The remainder of the symbols are from beginning to about level 2.

I remade it using a lot less ink. I also remade all the graphics so they looked fresher, and added a fermata to the game! For teachers who have to use black ink only printers, I made a black and white version.

Before you print, be aware that you don’t need to print both the color and black and white versions. If you don’t know how to select individual pages to print, please check out my FAQ.

Materials

  • Musical Christmas Lights printable
  • Calling cards for the teacher
  • 20 bingo chips for each Christmas tree printable used (I use the Magnetic Wand and Bingo Chips from Amazon).
  • Crayons or colored pencils for the black and white version

Directions for color version

  • Print only the colored Christmas trees. Use as many individual cards as you need. If you have more than 6 students, group some on the same card.
  • Print and cut out the teacher calling cards.
  • Optional: Do not cut out the calling cards. Simply print and call out the symbols and put a check by the ones you have called.
  • To help children find the symbols quickly, call the color and the symbol, such as “Red, quarter note.”
  • The student covers the symbol on his card.
  • The first student who covers all the symbols wins.

Directions for black and white version

  • Print the black and white cards and the teacher calling card page.
  • With the printable open on your computer monitor to the teacher calling card page, use it as a guide to label the color of each symbol on your black and white version of the teacher calling cards.
  • Color the lights on the cards using the teacher calling cards as the guide to the colors.
  • For a classroom, make a copy for each student. Tell the students or write on your whiteboard the color each symbol should be colored.
  • Play the game using the directions for the color version, or create your own rules.

Objective

To review basic music vocabulary and symbols.

This is a quick printable that is fun for group lessons.Students try to find all the music words.

Cards for Silly Sentences

This is a different kind of game for older students at group lessons. My high school students had fun and reviewed some music terms. Be sure to download the sentences found here, and use the easier cards for younger students.

If you are looking for easy Christmas piano music, go here, and scroll way down past all the Halloween music. I have posted many carols in pre-reading notation. Have fun!

A List of Christmas and Seasonal Printables

Ornament Bingo

I have a new student who is learning the letter names of piano keys. I was looking at my website trying to find something, and I found this game I posted last year. Last year I used green and red M&M’s as the bingo tokens. You can use the alphabet letters from my last post as calling cards.

I’m sorry I don’t have anything new for you today. But I thought I’d list some of my holiday season games here to make it easier for you to find something you might be able to use.  These printables include games for individuals or groups, composing activities for beginners, and worksheets. Some of the links below take you to the original blog post with a link to my website, and some take you directly to my website. Once on my website, click preview to download the item. Directions to the games are found by searching on this blog. Everything is free, but donations to help with running the site are greatly appreciated!  I want to thank from the bottom of my heart all of you who are supporting the site to keep it going as a resource for teachers all over the world. My only goal is to make piano lessons and music theory so much fun that children will love coming to lessons; that they will put their own children in piano so the legacy we love so much will continue.

In addition to the seasonal  games  and worksheets on my website, there are also 16 elementary Christmas songs and carols. I am working on some more carols and adding some more games, so check back.
