Music Time All About BUGS

Singing with your kids doesn’t have to be complicated or in a formal music class. Your child will love singing with you (no matter what your voice sounds like!)

Music supports the early stages of language development, builds rhythm skills and promotes active listening.

Coming up with simple hand movements to coordinate with these silly songs about bugs will help engage your little one and teach them new fine and gross motor skills.

The Insect Song

(To the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”) For Babies: Come up with motions for each verse and encourage them to follow along

The Fireflies at night go “Blink, Blink, Blink”
“Blink, Blink, Blink” “Blink, Blink, Blink”
The Fireflies at night go “Blink, Blink, Blink”
All through the town.

The Bees on the Flower go “Buzz, Buzz, Buzz”
The Ants in the Grass go “March, March, March”
The Grasshoppers they go “Hop, Hop, Hop”
The Spider in the Web goes “Spin, spin, spin”
The Crickets in the field go “Chirp, chirp, chirp”
The Butterflies they go, “Flap, Flap, Flap”
(Add new verses if we don’t have lyrics for your favorite bug!)

Five Little Ladybugs

Five little ladybugs climbing up a door
One flew away then there were four

Four little ladybugs sitting on a tree
One flew away then there were three

Three Little ladybugs landed on a shoe
One flew away then there were two

Two little ladybugs looking for some fun
One flew away and then there was one

One little ladybug sitting in the sun
She flew away and then there were none

Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Worms

(To the tune of “Row, Row, Row your Boat”) 

This song is fun to have your child act out the motions of Wiggling, Crawling, and Digging.

Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle Worms
Wiggling all around.
Wiggle here and Wiggle there
Wiggle in the Ground.

Crawling, Crawling, Crawling Worms
Crawling all around.
Crawling here and Crawling there
Crawling in the ground.

Digging, Digging, Digging Worms
Digging all around.
Digging here and Digging there
Digging in the ground.
