Toddler Songs

Singing toddler songs is a great activity to do with your child. Most toddlers love to sing, and singing is a great way to encourage your toddler’s language development! Plus, many children’s songs also include hand-motions that help a child work on his/her gross motor skills while singing too! And don’t forget the added benefits of learning a little about rhythm and pitch too!  Look below for a list of toddler songs with hand motions and songs without hand motions!
