Toddlers and spring are a perfect match! Watching a toddler discover the newness of spring growth is so inspiring. To help little ones connect to the world around them and build literacy skills, these spring songs for toddlers will get you started.
Toddlers, an all young children, learn best through repetition. The more you sing these spring songs for toddlers, the more they will learn about spring, about music, and about language. Don’t be afraid to repeat the same song several times in a row. Even when adults begin to tire of a song or think it might be getting boring for a toddler, toddlers are usually just figuring it out and ready to participate themselves.
These Spring songs for toddlers are all action songs. Toddlers love actions and usually learn them faster than the words. I love seeing toddlers at play spontaneously remember actions to a song and incorporate the song and the actions into their play.
