Preschool Songs about Feelings




Perhaps, the most popular preschool song about Feelings:

Song#1  If You're Happy and You Know It

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it, then you're face will surely show it,
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.

Sad--wipe your tear, boo hoo
Mad--stomp your feet
Silly--shake your head
Sleepy--take a yawn
Scared--hide your eyes
Excited--say, "Hooray!"


Song#2 We All Have Feelings
Sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

We have feelings, yes we do
Happy, sad or feeling blue.
All our feelings are okay,
Each and every single day.
We  have feelings, yes we do
They belong to me and you.


Song#3 Itsy Bitsy Feeling Spiders

Sing the song Itsy Bitsy Spider with different emotions...

The sad little spider...
The happy little spider....
The silly little spider...

Make sure to use facial expressions, and change your voice to create the feelings when singing this traditional song!


Song#4 I Have That Happy Feeling

From the tune of I Have that Happy Feeling Here in my Heart



I have that happy feeling here in my feet,
Here in my feet, here in my feet
I have that happy feeling here in my feet
Here in my feet to stay.

I have that happy feeling here in my hands,
Here in my hands, here in my hands,
I have that happy feeling here in my hands
Here in my hands to stay.

Continue, on with other additions.



Song#5 The More We Get Together

The more we get together
Together, together,
The more we get together
The happier we'll be.



Another great way of mixing music with the topic of feelings, is to find different styles of music and ask children how the music makes them feel. Alternatively, combine this with painting.



These two videos from Sesame Street (gotta love Sesame Street) are just overall fun to watch for all ages, with the second one being sentimental to me as my sisters and I use to act out the song for my mom and her friends!
