Whether you’re learning about the moon or are planning a preschool space theme, don’t forget to include space songs for kids! These outer space songs are just some of the hundreds of songs we have in our list of the best songs for kids.
Music is one of our favorite ways to teach. Songs can be used to teach any concept, and it’s proven that music makes children smarter! Learning through music is one of the best ways to help children remember what they learn. These space songs are a treasure trove of education! There are songs to teach the planet names and order, songs about the sun and moon, and even space songs that teach the alphabet!
Save time by using our done-for-you lesson plans and activities! Check out the outer space lesson plans in our preschool store. From sorting moon rocks to painting stars, young learners will explore space in this unit. It’s full of hands-on learning activities, books, crafts, games, and printables.
Space Songs for Kids
We’ve picked out some of our absolute favorite outer space songs for kids. We start with songs about the solar system that teach the names and order of the planets, as well as one that teaches the planet names in Spanish!
Then we give you space songs specifically for toddlers. These are sweet and easy songs. They may teach some new concepts about outer space, such as gravity, but they’re specifically geared towards the youngest kids.
Then we end with fun space songs for preschool! These are a little more educational, using the concept of outer space to reinforce things like the alphabet or counting to 10. There are a few songs in there just for fun, too!
How to Stream Music in the Classroom or at Home
If you want to get songs without the ads from YouTube, there are a couple simple solutions. You can click the songs directly from this post, and it should take away most of the ads. Screen it first to make sure it works for your needs.
If you are using just audio, I have Amazon Music Unlimited. It isn’t free, but well worth it for me because we use it each day between the classroom and home. If you would want to download more than 10 songs a month, it’s worth its weight in gold!
It’s compatible with your phone, electronic devices, Alexa, and computer. What’s great is that I can download the songs while I’m home on my phone using wifi with the Amazon Music app. Then the songs are always there on my phone, and I can play them in the classroom, the car, or anywhere else.
