In our estimation, one of the best things about the holidays is the abundance of lights. Lots and lots of sparkly, twinkly, merry lights. It's definitely part of the magic of the season. Which is why we like to sing about it so much! This sweet little ditty gives your kids a chance to not only sing about all things sparkly, but also to play about them. There is a simple optional ukulele part that readily adds to the bouncy fun and uses only the chords C, F, and G. But to really make it, well, sparkle, we have included bells as well. The C scale is covered using all whole or half notes, making it very easy and effective to include. It, too, is optional though and the bells are doubled with a bell-like synth on the recording, just in case. You can find extracted parts for both ukuleles and bells at our web site.
