Singing songs is an extremely easy, yet beneficial activity for babies. It’s soothing, a powerful way to bond and helps their cognitive development and language skills. Baby sensory songs usually involve actions and movements which help babies to develop an awareness of their own bodies, gross and fine motor skills.
If you’re getting tired of singing the same nursery rhymes, day in day out, try changing it up with 5 new baby sensory songs. You can also use them alongside sensory toys to create your own baby sensory class at home!
Baby Sensory Songs
Baby sensory classes are very popular here in the UK. Whilst they aren’t free to go to, the songs from the classes are free to listen to. Here’s the playlist on Youtube. You can also download and listen to the playlist on Spotify or Amazon Music. They’re handy to use when you can’t get to a class or don’t enjoy going to them. These songs are great fun to sing and you can download the app to learn the signs aswell. ‘Say Hello to the Sun’ is a particular favourite of ours. It’s catchy, soothing, and easy to learn!
Bloom Baby Songs
Bloom baby classes have their own free playlist of sensory songs on Youtube and Spotify. Cooper the Caterpillar is another song that is quite catchy. It’s a fun song you can add actions to and will guarantee plenty of giggles.
Gymboree is a play and music class for babies and toddlers. Their Youtube playlist of songs includes songs about bubbles, pizza, and a train. They also have a Spotify playlist. We like to sing the bubbles song alongside our bubble activities.
Hey Bear Songs
Hey Bear have lots of sensory music and videos to stimulate your baby. There’s a big ongoing debate about screen time with babies so it’s up to you to do your own research and make your own judgement. Even if you don’t want your baby watching the screen, their classical chill out remix is nice to have on in the background when doing an activity, baby massage, or a baby sensory class at home.
The 5 sensory songs listed above might be a bit different compared to the songs you usually sing but they add a bit of variety into the day. Whilst helping to develop those all-important communication and language skills.
