Are you teaching Born to Be a King this year for Christmas? I’m so excited to share with you this free printable Born to Be a King Handbell Chart!
It was created by Merry Bells and they want to share it completely free, with anyone who would like it! More on that below.
Born to Be a King Handbell Chart
This printable handbell chart for Born to Be a King is 2 pages long. You can print it on just 2 pieces of paper, but I highly recommend printing POSTER size! I’ll show you how to do that, it’s really easy!
Just open the printable file, it’s a PDF that will open in Adobe Acrobat Reader (or whatever PDF program you use). I’ll show you the steps with Adobe.
Hit Print, then under the settings for Page Sizing & Handling, you can click the “Poster” button. This will open up a different selection of settings. You can adjust the tile scale.
It will show you on the right preview how many pages it will print as and the overall size. Pay attention to that info – it’s very helpful!
I prefer to make each single page 4 pages, so just play around with the tile scale until it’s just right. For me, that was 194% scaling.
Now, just tape them together or line them up side-by-side on the whiteboard with magnets. You can write a number in each printed page corner so it’s easier to keep them in order later!
Born to Be a King Handbell Chart Note Count:
Sometimes, it’s nice to have a note count. That way, you can assign your bells to the children you know will pay close attention and still include the kiddos that might not be as focused.
Or, if you have a child that feels like they need to ring just about every note – pick one of the more frequent colors to keep them ringing when you want them to but not feeling left out when it’s not their color’s turn.
- Red – 29 Notes
- Orange – 12 Notes
- Yellow – 32 Notes
- Green – 17 Notes
- Light Blue – 20 Notes
- Dark Blue – 12 Notes
- Purple – 10 Notes
- White – 14 Notes
