February Love Songs to Sing

We've been singing a lot over at our house this month... here are a few of our favorite toddler songs about love in honor of V-day. I've linked them to a video or mp3 to remind you of the tunes. Singing is so fun AND such a great way to enhance learning and language development.


SKINNAMARINK
Skinnamarink a-dink a-dink
Skinnamarink a-doo
I love you!
Skinnamarink a-dink a-dink
Skinnamarink a-doo
Yes, I do.
I love you in the morning
And in the afternoon
I love you in the evening
And underneath the moon.
Skinnamarink a-dink a-dink
Skinnamarink a-doo
I love you!
You-you-you-you!

We do the actions with Skinnamarink (shown in the video). I learned this song a long time ago watching Wee Sing Videos, so we love it.

A BUSHEL AND A PECK
I love you
A bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck
And a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck
And a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap
And I’m talking in my sleep
About you.
Doodle-doodle-doodle
Doodle-doodle-doodle
Doodle-doodle-doodle-do!
I love you!

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are gray.
You’ll never know dear
How much I love you.
Please don’t take
My sunshine away.

HAPPY FAMILY
I love mother, she loves me.
We love daddy, yes-sir-ee.
They love us and so you see
We are a happy family.
I love sister, she loves me.\
We love brother, yes-sir-ee.
They love us and so you see
We are a happy family.

We made some fun little paper dolls to go along with this song to help us learn who mommy, daddy, sister, and brother were. Holding something cool while singing is my son's favorite. You can tape a popsicle stick to about any picture and he's excited.

OH MY DARLING, VALENTINE
Tune: Oh, My Darlin’
Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling Valentine,
How I love you, how I miss you!
Oh my darling Valentine.
Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling Valentine,
Come to me please, be with me please,
Oh my darling Valentine.

Have fun singing and pass along your favorites!
