Preschool Dance Party

I held my first preschool dance party on Wednesday this week. Thanks to Cate's descriptive series of posts, planning was a cinch!

Here's the playlist I used:

  2. Shake My Sillies Out by Raffi from More Singable Songs
  3. Shake It Up by Milkshake from Great Day

  18. Sometimes I Like to Scream by Dino 5 from Baby Loves Hip Hop Presents the Dino 5
  19. Shake It Off! by Uncle Rock from The Big Picture
  20. A Monster Goes Rrraargh! by ScribbleMonster & His Pals from Best of Friends
  21. Jump Jump by Genevieve Goings from Choo Choo Soul
  22. Dizzy by Lunch Money from Dizzy
  23. Hula Mula by The Happy Hatters from Exercise Party
  24. I've Got Rhythm by Splash 'N Boots from Exercise Party
  25. The Hokey Pokey by Dan Zanes & Friends from Family Dance
  26. Come on Let's Hop by Big Giants from Fee, Fi, Fo, Fun!
  27. The Crazy Dance by Go Fish from Party Like a Preschooler
  28. Goodbye Song by Yo Gabba Gabba featuring Jack Black from Yo Gabba Gabba Music is Awesome! Volume 2

This set list clocks in at exactly one hour. I set out a bucket of egg shakers/maracas, bean bags, a pile of homemade ribbon things, a couple hula hoops, a couple balls, my five monkeys playset (M) and also brought out bubbles (B) and the parachute (P) during certain songs. I had a small crew-- just 3 littles and their caregivers, but the kids kept their attention the entire hour, which was pretty impressive. I was expecting things to fall apart much sooner than they did.

I've got another scheduled for early December, and I hope it catches on. It is such an easy program to host and the kids and caregivers who did come had a great time! I forgot to snap a photo before the destruction, but here's an action shot from midway through. That pile of blue are the homemade ribbon things I mentioned earlier.
