In this post: This is a list of some of the best Spanish music for kids. All of this music is available on Spotify, you can even get free Spanish music playlists!
When I talk to families that are raising bilingual children, a common concern that arrises is making sure they get enough Spanish input. So many of us raise bilingual children while surrounded by an outside dominant language that is constantly competing for our bilingual child’s attention!
Spanish music is an amazing way to help children learn Spanish, and increase their exposure to the language. When raising bilingual kids, finding great Spanish music to connect to is to so important. Here’s the thing though, I have a super low tolerance for annoying kids music. I want to put together a list of Spanish music for kids that wouldn’t drive any of us crazy if we listened to it on repeat!
Can Spanish music actually help my kids learn Spanish?
YES! Music is an amazing tool for Spanish learners because it brings in needed repetition, and helps encourage them to speak (sing) the language without realizing. Music helps children remember new words and syntax, while creating a fun and engaging Spanish learning environment. Music helps children of all ages learn Spanish, from preschoolers to high schoolers!
How can you use Spanish music to teach your children Spanish?
It is actually easier than you think! Sometimes it is enough to simply have music playing in the background as you craft, cook, or play. Having Spanish music, even in the background, is a great way to increase the amount of Spanish that your bilingual children hear each day.
Want to get your bilingual children speaking the language even more? Learning songs together is an amazing way to motivate your child to engage more with their second language, as they practice speaking and singing it.
If you want to be even more intentional when teaching your children Spanish with music, you can create activities to go hand in hand with certain songs. Bring Spanish songs to life with art projects, movement games, cooking, or even time outside. Music is one of the most powerful tools for language learning, and the possibilities are endless! This list of great Spanish songs for kids will help you get started.
