In the morning I use CDs. It is a mix of Raffi, Greg& Steve, Hap Palmer, Disney, Trout Fishing in America, and some other general kid's music.

In the afternoon I turn on our cable's kids music station. It tends to be about a 3 way split of classic kids songs, songs from movie soundtracks, and things like songs from the French version of Sesame Street.

Oh we also love Raffi and Randy Kaplin although Randy is more funny/folky type guitar music not so much for dance!

My kiddos are HUGE dance partiers 😁 Their current favorites are:

Wonky Donkey
I'm Still Standing
Handclap song
Happy
You're Welcome
It's Raining Tacos
Crazy Frog
Gummy Bear
High Hopes

We frequently turn on a Disney movie sing playlist on YouTube. At first, I thought I might have an issue with kids trying to sit & watch but we haven't.

Right now, my group seems to love "Let It Go" and anything Laurie Berkner.

Besides youtube and CDs, what other music media do you use for kids? I used CDs back in the day but they get scratched quickly. Pandora has ads for the free version so thinking about subscribing which last I checked was $3/month.

I still only use CD's. I just found the favorite songs online to link here. I keep the player up high on a mounted shelf the kids can't reach to keep them from banging the shelf and scratching them up. It was my only successful defense.

My playroom is screen-free and I don' want to encourage the kids to ask to use my PC or tablet. It becomes too expensive to keep replacing damaged equipment for me.

We subscribe to Apple Music, so thatís mostly what I use here. I also have several Pandora stations I like for daycare hours. I was paying the $4.99/month for the ad-free version until we started Apple Music. The pandora ads really arenít that bad. The stations I use the most for daycare are:

Childrenís Indie
Motown
70s Light Rock
Adult Alternative

I can only tolerate childrenís music for a short time, so I usually just put on regular music thatís appropriate for kids.

We have used Pandora and Amazon music. I use Amazon a lot at naptime, specifically "100 nature sounds for sleeping." If that playlist ever gets removed, I might have a panic attack 🙂
