Christmas is one of the loveliest times of the year to introduce your kids to music and help them appreciate it. 

So today, I thought I should show you how you can prepare for the upcoming festive season and use it to get your pre-schoolers into appreciating music. 

I have included some fun printables to go with this post, so don’t forget to download them once you are done reading. 


Learning Carols

Yes, learning to sing carols, and listening to different types of carols is one of the easiest ways for you to introduce your pre-schooler to music in the homeschool. 

Have you come across a single pre-schooler that doesn’t love Christmas carols? 

So why wait?

Get started right now, singing some of your favourite carols. 


Going Carolling

Yes, you can get an entire group of pre-schoolers and their moms together and go carolling around the neighbourhood. 

Imagine the cheer you can spread with such a simple act. 


Learning About The Origin Of Carols

Research and teach your child history of music, through stories about the origins of a carol. 

Tell them the name of the composer, what inspired the composer to write the carol and about the interesting times the composer lived in. 

Take it even further and teach them about a specific carol. 

Think it’s too much work? 

No worries, I’ve got you covered. 

Download the printable I have included with this post and you will be well on your way to teaching your child about the beautiful carol, While Shepherds Watched Their Flock By Night. 


Take In A Live Performance

Here’s another idea, take them to a live outdoor performance or church where carol services are held so they can experience music in person. 


Learning About Christmas Traditions In Another Country

Teach your child about traditions and Christmas music in another country. 

Take it a step further and teach them Christmas greetings in a different language. 

Again, don’t forget to download my printable where I have included the Christmas greetings in the Philippines. 


I would love to hear which one of these ideas you intend to implement first, to introduce your pre-schooler to music in the home. 

So please don’t be shy, comment below I always love to hear from my readers.
