Spring Songs and Chants for Kids
Mmmm Ahh Went the Little Green Frog by Jbrary
I am IN LOVE with Jbrary right now – they have so many awesome spring songs and chants!
As any good music educator will tell you, each good music session starts with a warmup! This one is great for getting little mouths moving in all different directions and warming up to sing.
Rainbow Dancers by Jbrary
This rainbow chant ties in perfectly to springtime! It has a few more words than Jbrary’s usual short chants, but oh boy is it worth it! Give each child a colored scarf and then start the chant. Each child gets their time to shine as you call their color. It starts with shaking the scarf for each color, and then the instructions get slightly more complicated (blue scarves tickle your nose, purple scarves touch your toes, etc.) It’s GREAT for practicing following instructions and critical listening. This is one your kids will ask for again and again!
Spring is Here by The Learning Station
One of the best spring songs for kids! The lyrics are simple and repetitive, which will encourage kids to jump in and sing very quickly. There’s also simple motions that will keep the kids engaged without getting out of control!
Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz) by Laurie Berkner
Spring means bumblebees and other insects! Laurie Berkner’s silly spring song includes lots of fun dancing and patterns. “Buzz buzz buzz ba buzz!”
Bunny Hop by Patty Shukla
Patty Shukla and her brilliant “musical PE” have done it again with this adorable spring song! It’s a great music and movement song where kids hop around like bunnies. She throws in some early literacy too, by spelling out the word h-o-p.
Springtime Dance by Jack Hartmann
Another great spring song that has fun action and dance movements! There are SO many spring topics included in the song that it’s perfect for both teachers and parents. Kids will love hopping like a bunny, dancing like a bird, spraying like a sprinkler, and swaying like a flower!
Mr. Sun by Raffi
At the end of a cold and cloudy winter, spring is the perfect time to talk (and sing!) about the sun! We love this classic from Raffi.
Five Little Ducks by Bounce Patrol Kids
There’s a lot to enjoy here with this beloved toddler and preschool spring song. Bounce Patrol Kids hold up fingers to count, and they put up the numerals big and clear so your children can develop their number recognition skills. They also include harmonies around the melody, which keeps it interesting to listen to and helps develop critical listening skills.
B-U-N-N-Y by Kiboomers
Easter is, of course, an important part of spring! The Kiboomers have taken the familiar B-I-N-G-O song and turned it into B-U-N-N-Y. I personally love it when people take familiar melodies and re-use them, because if the kids already know the tune, they can jump in singing the new words super quickly!
Rainbow by Nancy Kopman
Rainbows are one of our favorite parts of spring, and an essential inclusion in any spring theme! I love this rainbow song so much for introducing some science. It reinforces the names of colors and rainbow color order, but also teaches WHY a rainbow appears! Note that it includes the colors “indigo” and “violet,” giving the chance for a quick vocabulary lesson too.
Singing in the Rain by The Learning Station
You might know the movie and the song, but chances are your kids may already know it as one of their favorite dance and action songs! It gets super fun as you add body positions and then have to hold them as the song continues.
Eensy Weensy Spider by Super Simple Songs
This, to me, will always be the original fingerplay! Even before I knew how educational fingerplays are, I loved using this song in the classroom or with my own kids because it never failed to grab their attention. I love seeing their little brains work as they try to figure out the spider’s movement with their fingers. This one keeps it interesting with faster and slower speeds.
Two Little Butterflies by Jbrary
This super educational fingerplay teaches opposites and also works fine motor skills. As they say at the end, you can make up an endless amount of your own verses, too! Try hot and cold, near and far, mean and nice, or any other opposites you’d like. The chant also be done with blackbirds, bees, or another spring animal of your choice!
Here is the Beehive by Alina Celeste
Alina Celeste’s charming interpretation of Here is the Beehive is a perfect spring fingerplay! Follow along with the motions to re-tell this fun story.
Here is the Beehive by Super Simple Songs
This spring song for preschool in another version of Here is the Beehive with some extra verses. It can be sung, or get creative and use your hands to turn the extra verses into your own fingerplay! It also includes some early math concepts and learning to count to five.
