5 Spanish Songs for Toddler's Daily Routine

5 Spanish Songs for Toddler's Daily Routine

January 07, 2021

We are pretty obsessed with using music for language learning at home. Not only does exposing kids to music early help them learn sounds and the meanings of words, but it helps them with motor skills, self-expression, and memory skills.

An easy way to incorporate more music into their day is by connecting songs to daily routines. Here are a few short Spanish songs that are easy to remember and sing with your littles.

1. A song for diaper changes (sing to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

 Spanish Lyrics English Translation

Es momento de cambiar

con cuidado el pañal.

La colita hay que limpiar,

y uno nuevo colocar

Ahora que fresquito estás

Ya podemos celebrar!

It's time to change

your diaper carefully.

We need to clean your bum

and put on a new diaper.

Now that you're clean/fresh,

We can celebrate!

 

 

2. A song for when we brush teeth (sing to the tune of Frère Jacques)

 Spanish Lyrics English Translation

A lavarse los dientes

Vamos ya, vamos ya

Usamos el cepillo

Y pasta de dientes

Mañana y noche

Mañana y noche

Let's brush our teeth 

Let's do it, let's do it

We use our toothbrush

And toothpaste

Morning and night

Morning and night

 

 

3. A song for when we wash our hands (sing to the tune of La Bamba)

 Spanish Lyrics English Translation

Yo me lavo las manos

Yo me lavo las manos

Con jabón y un poquito de agua

Yo me lavo las manos

Yo me lavo las manos

Con jabón y un poquito de agua

I wash my hands

I wash my hands

With soap and a little bit of water

I wash my hands

I wash my hands

With soap and a little bit of water

 

4. A song for when we wake up (sing to the tune of row, row, row your boat)

 Spanish Lyrics English Translation

 

A levantarse que

ya salió el sol

Arriba, arriba, arriba, arriba

A ver que hacemos hoy

Let's get up

The sun is up

Up, up, up

Let's see what we'll do today

 

5. A song for when we eat breakfast (sing to the tune of itsy bitsy spider)

 Spanish Lyrics English Translation

Llegó la hora del desayuno

Todos a la mesa, a comenzar

Desayunar es muy importante

Para luego salir a jugar

Breakfast time is here

Everyone to the table, let's start

Breakfast is very important

So that later we can play
