Music - Our Top 15 Movement Songs

Little C has recently entered the stage where she loves to do movement games. She moves along with Mickey Mousekersize and really gets into movement songs. Here are our top 15 movement songs (album names in parentheses):

  1. Laurie Berkner - We Are the Dinosaurs (Whaddaya Think of That)
  2. Laurie Berkner - I Know a Chicken (Whaddaya Think of That)*
  3. Laurie Berkner - Shake Your Body Down (Party Day)
  4. Laurie Berkner - Rocketship Run (The Best of The Laurie Berkner Band)
  5. Laurie Berkner - Bumblebee (The Best of The Laurie Berkner Band)
  6. Laurie Berkner - Wimoweh (Whaddaya Think of That)
  7. Laurie Berkner - The Airplane Song (Whaddaya Think of That)
  8. Greg & Steve - The Mack Chicken Dance (Big Fun)
  9. Greg & Steve - The Movement Medley (Big Fun)
  10. Greg & Steve - New Zoo Review (Big Fun)
  11. Greg & Steve - Animal Action I (Kids in Motion)
  12. Greg & Steve - Sports Dance (On the Move)
  13. Greg & Steve - Listen & Move (We All Live Together, Volume 2)
  14. The Hokey Pokey
  15. Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes
The first 13 songs can all be purchased through Amazon; there are so many versions of the last two sometimes it's easier just to sing it ourselves! Most of the Laurie Berkner songs, and probably most of the others, can be found on YouTube. Little C loves to dance and sing along while watching The Laurie Berkner Band perform the song. And it's nice for me because she stays focused and involved even if I have to walk away for a few minutes.

So add these to your music list and get dancing!

*I recommend having at least 2 egg shakers for this song. We have a couple from our instrument set but if you don't have any, grab a couple plastic Easter eggs, fill them with dried rice or beans and glue or tape them shut.
