These Five Senses Songs are a great way to introduce the concept to young children as they explore each sense with a song or a game.
They’re great for expanding young vocabularies and good for building the confidence to try new things. Here i’ve collected a song (or two) for each of the senses: smell, sound, sight, touch and taste.
Five Senses Songs – Smell
First we’re going to look at the sense of smell with a funny little song called ‘How Does A Red Rose Smell?’ I’ve included 6 easy verses in the post here but I find once kids get the idea they’re only too happy to come up with their own suggestions and get creative!
Five Senses Songs – Listening
This listening game and song is a great way to encourage kids to listen carefully and describe what they can hear. So it’s a great way to encourage engagement and increase the vocabulary. Visit the post for details of how to play the game and sing the little song.
Five Senses Songs – Sight
This song is so useful as it can be used to fit in with lots of different themes. It’s another one where you can heavily adapt or make up lyrics to suit your situation. But you can find the original lyrics here, in addition to the tune below.
Five Senses Songs – Touch
The Autumn Treasure guessing song can be used to fit with any theme, not just for Autumn. Autumn is such a great time of year to use as an example because it is so great for finding interesting treasures! Check out the post for full details of the song and listening game.
Five Senses Songs – Taste
This tasting song is such a lot of fun and kids love it, but do be careful to check for any allergies first! You can find the lyrics and how to play here, and the tune in the YouTube clip below.
And finally, here’s a very simple song which is about all of the 5 senses together.
