Thursday Thirteen – Our Favorite Kiddie Songs!
As I spend so much of my day singing – no I’m no American Idol wannabe – I simply have quickly learned the power of music with my munchkin. Since her 1st days, music has soothed her. It could be my husband’s self-created “Say goodnight and go to sleep” song or the classical music CD, she would be fast asleep.
I have realized as she is now approaching her toddler years that music still holds quite a bit of power. When she has her form of a “temper tantrum” I quickly suggest that we sing Row, Row, Row Your Boat, she smiles and forgets about what was bothering her. The best songs are the ones that have movements, i.e. Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. We sing during breakfast, lunch and dinner. We sing as she gets her diaper changed and during her splash splash time. Below is a list of our 13 favorite songs!
1. Row, Row, Row Your Boat
We own a number of different children’s musical CDs that I have everywhere – the cars, her room, the family room, the kitchen! These CDs are great! We get to learn new songs, dance to the music, you name it! It is certainly a Smart Mama move to have music in your child’s daily routine! Here are some of my favorites!
Does your munchkin enjoy music? Has it proven helpful as you tackle tantrums and night time? Share!
