French Songs for Kids: A Playlist for Beginners

by | Jul 13, 2018

Inside: A collection of French songs for kids on YouTube. 

 

As we raise our two bilingual kids, I’ve always planned to introduce a third or even fourth language. While this has always been the goal, I’ve been pretty spotty on following through. My son is super interested in French, and my goal this fall is to be more consistent with that. 

always recommend songs for parents wanting to teach their kids Spanish. It’s the perfect way to pick up pronunciation, remember words, and hear language in context.

I created a huge collection of songs in Spanish for kids, but haven’t found something similar for French. So here goes step 1: creating a YouTube playlist! 

We don’t want to set our kids loose on YouTube, and I don’t want him just listening to random songs. Here’s my collection of what we’ll be using as we started!

 

French Songs for Kids on YouTube

 

1. French Greeting Songs

 

Greetings are a good place to start as we learn to introduce ourselves and say hello. I like “French Greetings Song for Children” (also introduces numbers) and “Bonjour, Bonjour.”

 

 

 

2. French Colors Song

 

This one is nice for just learning each color word:

 

3. French Numbers Song

 

We’ve definitely learned 1-10 after a few listens!

 

 

 

 

4. French Alphabet Songs

 

More lighthearted than most on this list, Yo no sé mañana speaks to the uncertainty of new love with an upbeat salsa tone.

 

 

 

5. French Songs to Learn About the Family

 

 

 

 

 

6. French Songs for Parts of the Body

 

 

 

 

7. French Folk Songs for Kids 

 

Frère Jacques

 

Au Clair de la Lune

 

Nous n’irons plus as bois
