Songs about "Things that Go"
- Row, Row, Row Your Boat (My toddler LOVES singing this song and pretending our arms are oars. We hold hands and rock back and forth like we are rowing. We do a "regular" version, then a fast one. The third time we start out slow and then halfway through shout: "FASTER!" and finish "merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream!" fast again. The anticipation for the slow half just kills him and he cracks up before we get to go fast!)
- Little Red Caboose
- The Wheels on the Bus
Songs to Listen To:
- Drive My Car (The Laurie Berkner Band strikes again. The video link has some cute hand motions that can be done with this song while listening and/or singing along)
- The Airplane Song (Seriously...it's like the Laurie Berkner Band knows what I'm doing and is writing songs to help me out. This one has some fun actions like jumping, spinning, galloping, etc. to incorporate. It was great exercise for me as I helped my little guy fly like a plane and jump and dance around!)
- A Long Way Home (I've always been a fan of Tom Chapin's music for kids. "A Long Way Home" is a fun song about a very long journey home on all types of "Things that Go." And, along with a lot of Laurie Berkner Band songs, it's free if you have Amazon Prime Music!)
