The Twelfth Day of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords-a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking, seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree!

Drummers establish the rhythm for marching. They symbolize the 12 doctrines listed in the Apostles’ Creed, an ancient summary of Christian beliefs.

Suggested activity is to make noise/music using common kitchen items, E.g. boxes, pans, glasses, etc.
