Music Mama: Songs for your kids’ playlist!

By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama

They may not technically be “kids’ songs,” but some songs have a melody and catchy words that kids fall in love with. So this month I’ve put together a playlist that’s fun for kids and the whole family to sing, so use this playlist on your next car trip, airplane ride, or even a spontaneous dance session in the kitchen.

Some of these tunes are definitely “oldies but goodies,” so I hope you’ll have as much fun as I did on this little trip down a musical memory lane. To put this playlist on your iPod or MP3 player, print the list and use it to find your favorites when you’re shopping at your favorite online music store. Happy summer!
