Candy Cane Song

When I was a teacher I loved Dr. Jean,  I still own most of her CDs. I even went to one of her workshops years ago (so fun!)

I have even introduced a few of the songs to my own children. A favorite this past summer was "The Gummy Bear" song from the Is Everybody Happy CD.

I came up with this Christmas version of the song and C loves it.


The Candy Cane Song
(Tune: "Six Little Ducks That I Once Knew")

Down at the candy store, what did I see?

Seven little candy canes hanging on a tree.


Along came
child's name with a penny one day.

They bought a red one and they took it away.

Continue by counting down and using the different colors you use. If using in a classroom you can attach paper candy canes to a tree and pass out the pennies to a several children. As you sing, those children can come up at buy one. Sing more than once so everyone gets a turn :)



I just quickly cut candy cane shapes from construction paper, nothing fancy. And some brown circles for the pennies.

  1. My nephew is going to preschool right now and he loves it. We Facetime all the time and he is always showing me the stuff he makes at preschool. It seems to me they have a pretty good system going on. http://www.casadeibambinicenter.com/content/view/6/5/
