Playlist Power

Part 1

Pump Up the Jam

It's no secret that music makes us move. It gets the kids going too. In my experience, it's great if the kids know close to 50% of the songs you choose (and they aren't already sick of them... here's looking at you "Let it Go" from Frozen). With that, add some stuff you like to keep the day moving and expose kids to a variety of music.
