Go to www.kindermusik.com. Follow the shop link. You can download these songs or buy the CD. There is an option for music downloads in the right hand column. Cost is the same as iTunes.
Children Go Where I Send Thee
Over The River
Up On the Housetop
These are some of my favorites that are available for download.

On the CD, I love Let There Be Peace On Earth, African Noel, Carol of the Bells and Deck the Halls (it is instrumental instead of vocal which is great for your children to begin to get accustom to hearing music without singing!).

Check out the Kindermusik Int. web site at www.kindermusik.com. Click on "shop" and information about the new Kindermusik Christmas CD will pop up. You can peruse the play list and click on each title to hear a bit of each carol. Kindermusik is an excellent source for children's music.

I was at Target today. They have about 5 or 6 different CD's for Children with Christmas songs. They were on display in the Christmas section and you could actually hear portions of the music at the kiosk. They were less than $10. each.

My son loves the original version of I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peavy, it's the cutest song ever! Another favorites is the soundtrack from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer it has some great songs on it!



answers from Dallas on

This is pretty late, but I love "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt, and "'Zat You, Santa Claus?" by Louis Armstrong. I also have a chanting monks Christmas CD that's interesting, but maybe take it in small doses with the kids. Putumayo has a couple of Christmas CD's -- I love their stuff. And, of course, The Nutcracker Suite is always fun for kids to dance around to. Happy holidays!

I'm not sure if you are interested in quiet music too. I have borrowed a two disc set from my daughter... and am not sure where she found it... called "Silent Night - relaxing holiday favorites". Most of the songs are the religious carols, but done with soft guitar, piano and other quiet instruments so they make excellent nap time music. This set was produced in 2005-2006 by Compass Productions. You may be able to look it up online to find out where you can get a copy.



answers from Houston on

The kids love "I'm getting nothing for Christmas" and as a child my favorite was 12 days of Christmas and of course "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" lol Have fun!!



answers from Beaumont on

Veggie Tales has a Very Veggie Christmas CD that's a lot of fun.

"Santa Claus and Popcorn" was one of my favorites when I was little. You actually jogged my memory about with the question. I think that it is by Waylan Jennings, but don't quote me. It probably is 20 years old or more. My kids are 10, 7, and 3 so I'm going to look it up as well. It is such a fun song. Also songs from the Polar Express soundtrack are great! Have a wonderful Christmas!
