Halloween is just a few short weeks away so you know what that means – time to start preparing the pumpkins, costumes, and all the traditional foods that are usually severed during the highly-anticipated holiday. Halloween is a lot of fun for adults but even more fun for kids since they get to dress in crazy costumes and go trick-or-treating. Costumes aside, another important aspect of Halloween is the music, which generally has to be spooky but not always. If you have small kids you may want to keep them away from the scary music but still pick some songs that invoke the spirit of Halloween. As it happens, we were thinking about the same thing and made a list of Halloween songs for preschoolers that we think all kids will enjoy. Check it out.
A thematic Halloween song for preschoolers that’s all about counting pumpkins, black cats, and various other objects commonly associated with the holiday. Doesn’t sound very exciting for adults but little kids will definitely get a kick out of it.
I know what you’re thinking, Marilyn Manson isn’t exactly known for creating Halloween songs for preschoolers. You’re right and we wouldn’t advise letting your kids listen to most of his other tracks. However, this particular one is just a cover of the Nightmare Before Christmas so no need to worry.
There’s probably no other Halloween song for toddlers that’s as popular as The Adams Family main theme. Well, we say toddlers but it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone listens to this song at least a couple of times during Halloween regardless of their age.
Sharks are generally pretty scary but not when they’re babies who dress up in silly costumes. A great Halloween song for preschoolers that also teaches them a little about some of the creatures living in the sea.
Many of us loved watching The Twilight Zone when we were kids and it’s pretty safe to say that fans of the show still remembers its iconic theme song. The show may have ended many years ago but its theme is a great Halloween song for preschoolers that might get them interested in watching the series in spite of its age.
The Skeleton Dance is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a Halloween song that can both entertain and educate your little one. But in order to get the full effect, you’ll definitely want to play the song on YouTube where your kids can also see the video.
This is another lighthearted Halloween song for preschoolers that you might recognize as well. It’s basically just a Halloween version of the classic children song Five Little Monkeys.
Your kids might already be familiar with “Who Took the Cookie?” so they will definitely enjoy this one because it’s just the Halloween version of that song.
This Halloween song for preschoolers is perfect for picky eaters. In addition to potentially making them hungry, your children will also learn a lot of food-related words upon listening to this song.
If you played or sang This is The Way We Go to School to your kids, then they will already recognize the melody of this song. This is The Way We Carve a Pumpkin is very similar to that song but, just as the title suggest, this version is about making jack-o-lanterns.
