Children’s songs and children, a guaranteed hit!

Who doesn’t like children’s songs? When we think of children’s songs, there are a few that always come to mind. Right? They also tend to bring back so many amazing memories from the past.

Music doesn’t only brighten up our lives, but can also provide many benefits, it can be a distraction, make us happy, amplify our creativity… all of these are true for both adults and children.

From a very early age, you can begin to enjoy music and children’s songs. The youngest of children will also enjoy listening to music, even if they don’t understand the words yet. After a few birthdays, they will be enjoying themselves singing and dancing around everywhere.

At school, they will learn many songs, from the classic children’s songs that help them to multiply and sing with numbers, to other songs that are to just simply entertain both themselves and their friends.

Children’s songs continue to be one of the main forms of entertainment, whether they are at school, at the playground, or even at home with the rest of the family.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap)

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. (clap clap)

If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet. (stomp stomp)

If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (hooray!)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it

Itsy-bitsy spider (Lyrics)

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sunshine
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

Hush little baby (Lyrics)

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's gonna buy you a Mockingbird.
If that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.
If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat,
If that billy goat don't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
If that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's gonna buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest baby in town.
Hush, little baby, don't you cry,
Daddy loves you, so do I
Hush, little baby, don't you cry,
Daddy loves you, so do I

There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O

Sound familiar? They are only a few of the many songs for children that you would have sung along with as children many times before! There is nothing better to give your children the songs that you sang, with the same enthusiasm that you had when you were a child.

In places like Youtube and Spotify, you will find endless lists of children’s songs, both traditional and modern, that will give you plenty of options to sing along with with your children.

Almost all children’s songs have a simple rhythm and basic melodies that are easy to follow. Learn them, repeat them, or even create them, children love to sing and dance.

And so, singing songs with your children is always a good idea. If you don’t find the songs that you like, you can always invent new songs. You can take inspiration from anything and everything, they will have a great time!
