Got extra energy? Check out these three playful and creative music videos for kids!
My daughter sat at the dinner table fidgeting, bouncing on her chair, tapping things. I took a deep breath. I smiled and said, "Sweetheart, why don't you see how fast you can run around the house? I'll time you." She looked at me with a puzzled expression, then took off for the front door. After her jaunt around the house, we enjoyed a peaceful family dinner.
Sometimes our kids simply have excess energy.
Music is another great way to release some steam. It is also a simple way to add a bit of creativity to your child's day (minus the glue and glitter mess).
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
— Berthold Auerbach
Wouldn't you agree? Love that quote.
My girls adore the Jimmy Fallon Classroom Instrument videos.
My ladies outgrew Sesame Street ages ago, but they still love this Classroom Instruments video.
When they were preschoolers, this Let's Make Music video from Sesame Street was one of their favorites.
It always had them off their feet and scooting around the living room.
My husband found a short skit from the traditional Stomp performance on YouTube and the girls crack up every time they watch it. Perhaps it is all the silly faces or that THEY are used to being shushed, too.
Watch it here...
Let me know if your little ones liked the videos in the comments below.
P.S. Be sure to also check out Pompoloose on YouTube. They've got a unique collection of covers. Single Ladies is one of my favorites. If your kids are Wizard of Oz fans they might like this slow rendition. My ladies just love SEEING all the instruments.
