We are excited to share Holiday Cheer this 2020 Holiday Season.

We love sharing happiness for kids and bringing together kid talent that can inspire other kids!

We created this original 12 Days of Christmas Song to bring holiday smiles to children everywhere.  We are grateful you have been part of our growth or have been referred to us.  This page shares as info and FAQ for creating a music video – virtual and successful.

Together, we can do it!!

In April, at the onset of Covid-19, we had the vision to bring 19 kids and adults together to create the music video – THE THING I DO.  It was challenging, it was back and forth communication and we learned a lot and we created a fun and successful music video with every day people.  They were not professionals.  And this is what we did.  Imagine what we can do with talent, fun and communication?!

Description for Project – Operation 12 Days of Christmas

We are looking for a combination of children (contributor) (ages 6-18) boys and girls to a) sing a verse from the 12 Days of Christmas Song and also b) record video (in proper format for re-use by our film team) of said child(ren) singing the song.  Recording a creative video piece is encouraged!
  2. Each child will sing a verse from the song as well as sing collaborative lyrics in the song to be seen together in the music video.  (Similar to The Thing I Do music video on YouTube listed above).

12 Days of Christmas – Trezekke Silly Style

Written by Lisa Caprelli

Created to connect kids of all ages and adults for Christmas Spirit, Happiness and Fun!

On the first day of Christmas 

Write a cool haiku 

Sing a carol, a classic 

Your friends will join you …   

On the 2nd Day of Christmas

Jump it’s for play

Hop to the beat 

Move those hips – shout:   ¡Olé!  

On the 3rd Day of Christmas

As you wander in the snow

Bee Happy

Bee Silly

With Your Tongue –  catch some snow  

On the 4th day of Christmas

Write a letter in a pun  

Say, you’re happy:

“Write back!”

Put it in the mail AND RUN!   

On the 5th Day of Christmas

Play a Game with Family!

Guess The Thing

Grab a clue

You can win Happily 

On the 6th Day of Christmas

Make a house of Gingerbread!

Add Crayons 

And Gummy bears in 

Orange, Green and RED

On the 7th Day of Christmas

Make a masterpiece that shines

Be Creative – It’s worth it

Have fun 

And make it RHYME!

On the 8th Day of Christmas

Close your eyes – imagine New

Reflect on the vision

Believe! It can be You

On the 9th Day of Christmas

 Who needs a HUG? 

Hold merrily…   

Don’t tell you’ve got a bug!  

On the 10th Day of Christmas

Bundle up! Because It’s time!

As you’re sharing the moment

Shout out:

           Here is my slime!

On the 11th Day of Christmas

Find a choir to clap & cheer!

Put pajamas on..

Leave cookies  

Santa’s reindeer are near!

On the 12th days of Christmas

Eat a meal with candlelight

Tell jokes  

Play songs  

Enjoy all through the night!
