Hot chocolate is the #1 most requested treat at my house during the winter months. My kids love the entire process, from helping stir in the chocolate, to adding marshmallows (and sprinkles), and then of course, drinking it.
They were my inspiration for writing this song, and we’ve been singing it nonstop for the last couple of weeks! It has been an instant hit with my students, as well. The repetitive, catchy melody is super singable, and it’s so much fun to pair with shakers as we act out the process of making hot chocolate.
For an added challenge, pull out some rhythm sticks and teach the clave rhythm you hear in the recording during the chorus. You could even alternate the two instruments between the chorus and verses! Just be warned: you will all be craving a cuppa hot chocolate after singing this song ;)
