preschool action and movement songs being acted out by 3 little boys

Your kiddos will have a blast moving to these 20 preschool action and movement songs! Follow along with the videos, or download the free, printable PDF of the lyrics.

As (part of) the old saying goes, there’s a time for everything: There’s a time for sharing a good children’s book with your kids. And there’s a time for cutting loose and breaking into song with them. This post is for the latter.

Today I have for you a round-up of 20 preschool action and movement songs your kiddos will love. You may remember some of them from your own childhood, but I’ve included videos and lyrics for you to follow along with just in case. I’ve also created a free, printable PDF of the lyrics for you to download if you’d like.

Benefits of Action Songs

Children’s actions songs are much more than fun and games (although they are a lot of fun!). When your kids sing and act out preschool songs with movement, they reap benefits in many facets of their development, including:

  • Memory and Recall
  • Body Part Recognition
  • Counting and Number Recognition
  • Vocabulary and Speech
  • Reading Readiness
  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills
  • Listening and Following Directions
  • Attention Span and Concentration
  • Confidence and Self-Esteem

Preschool Action and Movement Songs with Lyrics

Classic Songs and Nursery Rhymes

First up on the list are some classic preschool action songs and nursery rhymes. Enjoy a bit of nostalgia while teaching your little ones these timeless tunes!

Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush

“Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush” is an English nursery rhyme that was first recorded by  James Orchard Halliwell in the mid-1800s. It features actions and lyrics that reinforce daily grooming routines in a fun way.

Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush ~ Lyrics

Here we go ’round the mulberry bush
The mulberry bush
The mulberry bush
Here we go ’round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning

This is the way we wash our face
Wash our face
Wash our face
This is the way we wash our face
So early in the morning

This is the way we comb our hair
Comb our hair
Comb our hair
This is the way we comb our hair
So early in the morning

This is the way we brush our teeth
Brush our teeth
Brush our teeth
This is the way we brush our teeth
So early in the morning

This is the way we put on our clothes
Put on our clothes
Put on our clothes
This is the way we put on our clothes
So early in the morning

The Wheels on the Bus

Wikipedia credits Verna Hills with writing “The Wheels on the Bus.” However, other sources say the true author of this preschool action song is unknown. The song based on “Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush” and is sung to the same tune.

The Wheels on the Bus ~ Lyrics

The wheels on the bus go round and round

Round and round, round and round

The wheels on the bus go round and round all through the town!

The people on the bus go up and down

Up and down, up and down

The people on the bus go up and down all through the town!

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep all through the town!

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish

Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish swish

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish all through the town!

The signals on the bus go blink, blink, blink

Blink, blink, blink, blink, blink, blink

The signals on the bus go blink, blink, blink all through the town!

The motor on the bus goes zoom, zoom, zoom

Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom

The motor on the bus goes zoom, zoom, zoom all through the town!

The babies on the bus go waa, waa, waa

Waa, waa, waa, waa, waa, waa

The babies on the bus go waa, waa, waa all through the town!

The parents on the bus go shh, shh, shh

Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh

The parents on the bus go shh, shh, shh all through the town!

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” is lively tune that will get your kids’ blood pumping while teaching them body part recognition.

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes ~ Lyrics

Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes
Eyes and ears, and mouth, and nose
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes

I’m a Little Teapot

“I’m a Little Teapot” was written by George Harold Sanders and Clarence Z. Kelley, and published in 1939. Your kids will not only have a blast performing this preschool action song, they will look adorable doing it!

I’m a Little Teapot ~ Lyrics

I’m a little teapot
Short and stout.
Here is my handle,
Here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up
Hear me shout:
Tip me over
And pour me out!

I’m a very special teapot
This is true.
Here’s an example
Of what I can do.
I can change my handle
And my spout.
Tip me over
And pour me out!

If You’re Happy and You Know It

Although “If You’re Happy and You Know It” was credited to Joe Raposo in 1971 by Jonico Music when they filed a copyright for it, the song had been around for years (possibly, decades) and published by others prior to that date.

Regardless of who is truly responsible for writing this cheerful little ditty, it will surely put a smile on your kiddo’s face!

If You’re Happy and You Know It ~ Lyrics

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 your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet

If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hurray!” (Hurray!)
If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hurray!” (Hurray!)
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hurray!” (Hurray!)

If you’re happy and you know it, do all three (hurray!)
If you’re happy and you know it, do all three (hurray!)
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, do all three (hurray!)

The Hokey Pokey

No list of preschool action songs would be complete without the good ‘ol “Hokey Pokey!” Your kids will have a blast shaking out their excess energy to this song while working on their body part recognition and coordination.

The Hokey Pokey ~ Lyrics

You put your right hand in
You take your right hand out
You put your right hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

You put your left hand in
You take your left hand out
You put your left hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

You put your left foot in
You take your left foot out
You put your left foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

You put your whole self in
You take your whole self out
You put your whole self in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

Animal Action Songs for Kids

Next up is a collection of preschool action songs that feature animals.

I hesitated to include “Baby Shark” on the list because most people know it already (whether they have kids or not). But, since it’s so popular with the littles, I decided to share it after all. So, without further ado, here’s your earworm for the day.

Baby Shark

Animal Dance and Freeze

Jack Hartmann’s “Animal Dance and Freeze” is a great way to familiarize little ones with wild animals. It also helps kids with their listening skills, and it builds “body and brain connections with crossing the midline moves.”

Animal Dance and Freeze ~ Lyrics

Move your lion paws, roar!

Move your monkey arms, swing!

Move your eagle wings, fly!

Move your head, hips and knees

And do the animal dance and freeze

Dance like a cheetah, run

Dance like a cheetah, run

Dance like a cheetah with me

Dance like a cheetah and freeze

Dance like an elephant, stomp, stomp

Dance like an elephant, stomp, stomp

Dance like an elephant with me

Dance like an elephant and freeze

Dance like a giraffe, stretch, stretch

Dance like a giraffe, stretch, stretch

Dance like a giraffe with me

Dance like a giraffe and freeze

Move your lion paws, roar!

Move your monkey arms, swing!

Move your eagle wings, fly!

Move your head, hips and knees

And do the animal dance and freeze

Dance like a crocodile, chomp, chomp

Dance like a crocodile, chomp, chomp

Dance like a crocodile with me

Dance like a crocodile and freeze

Dance like a gorilla, thump, thump

Dance like a gorilla, thump, thump

Dance like a gorilla like me

Dance like a gorilla and freeze

Dance like a snake, slither, slither

Dance like a snake, slither, slither

Dance like a snake with me

Dance like a snake and freeze

Move your lion paws, roar!

Move your monkey arms, swing!

Move your eagle wings, fly!

Move your head, hips and knees

And do the animal dance and freeze

The Penguin Dance

Here’s another cute preschool action song from Pink Fong of “Baby Shark” fame. Instead of sharks, this one’s all about penguins.

The Penguin Dance ~ Lyrics

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Right flipper!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Right flipper! Left flipper!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Right flipper! Left flipper! Right foot!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Right flipper! Left flipper! Right foot! Left foot!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin!

Right flipper! Left flipper! Right foot! Left foot! Nod your head!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins begin! Right flipper! Left flipper! Right foot! Left foot! Nod your head! Turn around!

Have you ever seen a penguin dancing here?

When you look at me a penguin you will see!

Penguins attention! Penguins dismissed!

Hold up your hand – move your fingers to the beat

Whoops say “hello” means another fish has come

One little fish swimming in the sea

Splishing and a splashing rockin’ to the beat

Here comes another fish, whoops say “hello”

Two little fish swimming in a row

Two little fish swimming in the sea

Splishing and a splashing rockin’ to the beat

Here comes another fish, whoops, say “hello”

Three little fish swimming in a row

Three little fish swimming in the sea

Splishing and a splashing rockin’ to the beat

Here comes another fish, whoops, say “hello”

Four little fish swimming in a row

Four little fish swimming in the sea

Splishing and a splashing rockin’ to the beat

Here comes another fish, whoops, say “hello”

Five little fish swimming in a row

Five little fish swimming in the sea

Splishing and a splashing rockin’ to the beat

Five little fish swimming in a row

Let’s wave good-bye ‘cause whoops there they go (repeat)
