Playlist: Music for a Chill Playdate

I don’t know about you, but I can be a little picky about the music my charges listen to. Because it happens to be the music have to listen to as well. Thankfully, these days it’s not all Barney and Sesame Street soundtracks. Children’s music these days can be wonderfully diverse, colorful, and fun for all ages to listen to. I’ve caught myself playing Frances EnglandGustafer Yellowgold, and Caspar Babypants on repeat even when my charges aren’t around. But do you ever throw on a children’s station that seems to specialize in songs that are nails-on-a-chalkboard awful because you simply don’t have time to find more appealing music? Look no further, nanny friends, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a playlist of 15 quality children’s songs with warm, catchy sounds to get you started. Throw it on at a kids party or playdate to impress your guests, or the next time your charges have to spend a rainy day at home. Do you have any favorite children’s bands or songs? Share in the comments! I’d love to know.

PS – This is my favorite resource for great children’s music.

PSS – Caspar Babypants also has delightfully quirky music videos. My 3 year old charge loves this one.

Happy listening!
