If you know me, then you know how much I love handbells!  The suggested song for December is Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and I have a bell chart coming soon for that song!  And Christmas is my FAVORITE time to use them!  

In December, I have several activities incorporating handbells in singing time!  So if your primary doesn’t own a set, I HIGHLY recommend that you get one!

How to Use Handbells

I have a post HERE for using handbells in singing time.  It details what I recommend you purchase, where to get them and how I use them.

Camille's Primary Ideas: Merry Bells

Merry Bells is my favorite for a basic set!

Brad, the owner of Merry Bells has a digital download for I Will Walk with Jesus.  It will be available in the near future.  This song is suggested several times next year (find more details on 2022 Music for Singing Time HERE).

I use handbells throughout the year in singing time, not just at Christmas.  Scroll through all of my singing time lesson plans that incorporate handbells HERE.

  1. Hi Camille! I just got my bells— I’m so excited to use them. Does the Christmas Bells descant jump around octaves if you just use the 8-bell pack? I’m wondering if I should order the bigger pack. Just wondering which you use for this song since you’ve done it a lot.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Kristen!

      I hope you love your bells! I never worry about octaves when we play. I use all the octaves at the same time so more kids get to ring the bells. And it sounds great! I would recommend getting more only if you want more kids to play more bells at the same time. I hope that answers your question.

  2. Camille Our Primary Program was yesterday and went so well. Now I am excited to start using bells with the kids for the Holidays. I have purchased 2 sets of Merry Bells. I go to your bell charts and try to play the song and the pitches are not right. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong Help
