We listen to a lot of music around here. One song repeatedly asked for by Sweet Pea, my toddler, is Go Baby Go, on the Baby Loves Jazz CD (I linked with a picture if you’re interested. They have a lot of cute kid songs all in jazz style by adults, which is nice variety when you’re sick of listening to little kids singing). Often times he’ll be sitting playing by himself and we’ll hear him singing this and then he’ll jump up and ask to hear it.
This song asks Baby to shake their hand, foot, arm, head and leg and various points throughout it. Sweet Pea loves this! He dances or jumps through the chorus and giggles like crazy. Then when they specify a body part he concentrates really hard, but smiling all the while, and wiggles or shakes that body part like he’s asked. He especially loves it when we move along to the song with him and the bigger the movements we make the better and he absolutely loves to copy whatever movement we’re making even if it’s super silly!
What do you listen to that gets you and your kiddos moving?
