46 songs for ages 3-5.

Below are 46 short songs for young children; some are classics and some have original twists! All of the classic ones from your childhood are here, as well as tons of new ones you might not already know. Small children love these simple songs; they’ll want to do them over and over—helping their neuropathways to form. These simple music activities are the pre-cursor to acting.


Ants Came Marching
Sung to: “When John Comes Marching Home”
The ants came marching two by two, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two
The little one stopped to tie his shoe.
They all go marching down in the ground and out of the rain,
Boom, Boom, Boom.

Other Verses:
The ants came marching three by three…
The little one stopped to climb a tree.
The ants came marching four by four….
The little one stopped to shut the door….
The ants came marching five by five…
The little one stopped to take a dive….
… The ants came marching ten by ten
The little one stopped to say THE END!
