We’ve got a few fun Valentine-themed songs to share with you today!
Classic children’s song, with great actions. In addition to being a sweet song that says “I love you”, you can teach your child about the placement of the sun in the morning, afternoon, and evening.
The More We Get Together
A celebration of friendship, this simple song is easy for little ones to sing. We’ve added some instruments, and some variations that use your kids’ creativity.
If You Love Me and You Know It
A cute spin-off on “If you’re happy and you know it”, this song encourages some affectionate moments between you and your sweet little one!
Watch the video to see Elizabeth and Charlotte demonstrating all of these songs.
We love dancing to all kinds of music, in all kinds of ways. But today we’re going to talk about a romantic favorite: the waltz.
You can waltz to any music that has moderately fast 3-beat groups. The formal waltz involves a foot pattern of “step step close” and involves the couple spinning continually around the ballroom. Waltzing in your living room with a 2 year old will, of course, look very different! Here are a few tips when waltzing with your child:
There are many great classical pieces to waltz to -- we included 2 at the top of this “Valentine’s Classics” Spotify playlist for you. Beyond these two waltzes, the playlist is filled with gorgeous classical pieces that are generally romantic and lovely! From Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Waltz to Mendelssohn’s Wedding March to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, you’ll find a great variety of pieces to enjoy with your child. (and it’s ok if it doubles as your romantic soundtrack on your Valentine’s date, too! You’re welcome!! 😉😍)
