Being cooped up indoors most of the winter means my girls are itching to run around and jump on everything from the couch to my bed! But with so many fun movement songs for toddlers on YouTube, it can be easy to keep the energy contained to just the living room (or at least the vicinity). It also means mom gets a little cardio in her day!

10 Movement Songs for Toddlers on YouTube
Here are 10 really fun movement songs for toddlers on YouTube that your child will love.
Freeze Dance by The Kiboomers
Listen and Move by TheKidscartoons
Head Shoulders Knees and Toes by Super Simple Songs
The Hokey Pokey Shake by Super Simple Songs
Action Song for Kids by The Singing Walrus
Touch Your Head by Maple Leaf Learning
Shake Break by Pancake Manor
JUMP! By Patty Shukla
Walking, Walking by LittleFoxKids
Play Pat-a-Cake with Elmo by Sesame Street
If you would rather watch all 10 of the songs at the same time, I made a playlist with all the songs! You can shuffle them or put the playlist on repeat so the kids stay active even longer. The total time of all the songs is about 26 minutes.
Click here for the playlist. (YouTube won’t let me link to playlist anymore)
I recommend turning the videos on and turning off the monitor on your computer or your TV (if that’s possible) so your kids will concentrate more on moving around than watching what is on the screen.
I love to get involved when we turn on these movement songs because it really helps me connect with my kids more. Every once in a while I will let them use the cushion from our rocking chair to jump on (we take it off the chair and put it on the floor), and they love to take turns jumping on it or even pretending to fall over. Anything goes when kids start moving and shaking!!
