15 Kid-Friendly Songs for a Rockin’ Family Dance Party

Kid-Friendly Dance Party Playlist

Summer vacation is a great opportunity for kids to let loose all that pent-up energy that builds up over the school year. But when the temperature soars, you might be on the hunt for a fun energy-burning activity that doesn’t come with the risk of heat stroke and sunburns.

So unless you have a jungle gym in your living room (if you do, can we come over?), here’s the best way for your family to get some endorphins indoors – and check another thing off our Ultimate Summer Bucket List at the same time :)

This week’s activity: Have a dance party!

If you’ve ever taken a dance class (or even had an impromptu dance-off at a sleepover) you know dancing is a great workout! Even grooving to a single song can leave you out of breath and smiling. Dancing is not only a fun way to burn calories, but also helps improve memory and reduce stress for both you and the kids. And who knows? You might even find out you have a future So You Think You Can Dance champion in your house!

To help get you in the mood, we’ve put together a list of 15 kid-friendly tunes that kids AND parents can rock out to:

  1. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
  2. “I’m a Believer” by Smash Mouth
  3. “I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)” from The Jungle Book
  4. “Mickey” by Toni Basil
  5. “Firework” by Katy Perry
  6. “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson
  7. “Twist and Shout” by The Beatles
  8. “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
  9. “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins
  10. “I Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas
  11. “Rockin’ Robin” by the Jackson 5
  12. “I Like To Move It” by Will.i.am
  13. “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz
  14. “Macarena” by Los de Rios
  15. “YMCA” by the Village People
