Movement Song

Incorporate music and dancing into your active time! A fun way to develop any fundamental movement skill of your choosing.

Set up

Search for KIDDO_AU on Spotify to access the playlists that we use for Early Learning Services and Schools. This will require a device and speaker. Children spread out in the designated area.

How to play
Step 1:
  • The educator plays a song 
Step 2:
  • Children listen to the song and copy the actions described in the songs
  • If you're unsure of the actions, just get moving and show off your best dance moves!
Step 3:
  • If you don't have access to Spotify, try "Who Took the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?"
    • "Who took the cookie from the cookie jar? Panda took the cookie from the cookie jar
      Who, me? Yes, you!
      Not me! Then who?

    • Children act as a panda, then a rabbit, and continue with other animals
