My boys and I love music! We are always singing a song or humming a tune. Their lastest favorite? Singing the Foo Fighter’s song, The Best of You (a fave of their dad…). My eldest makes ups songs all the time, loves to pretend he is a rock and roll star or a DJ. On occasion, he takes out his guitar, places a cardboard box at his feet and pretends to be a street musician. And, yes, we have to give him money to play…. My youngest son loves to sing as well. He will get hooked on one song and listen to it over and over and over and then will move onto a different song. His current favorite? The theme song to Little Einsteins which I play on repeat for him all night long. Needless to say, the rest of us are a little tired of that song, but he loves it so we manage.
We also like to dance and move to the music we listen to. We have several favorite kid songs that get us up and moving and thought we would share them with you.
Note: I tried to find a link for each song so you can either listen to the song or listen and watch a video. I always appreciate a sneak peak! 🙂
