Our Favorite Spanish Colors Songs


Last week in my Saturday songs series I shared our favorite songs for numbers. This week is all about colors! I really love these options. I like the kids to watch songs that are beautiful to see and beautiful to listen to, not just catchy or entertaining, and these songs fit the bill.

Most of these are meant to teach the colors to Spanish learners, but native speakers will enjoy them too.


Canción de los colores

Toobys for the win again! Wonderful graphics and music. 



Sweet, simple song.


Arco Iris

Bilingual song that goes through the rainbow of colors.


Colores, colores

Goes through the colors with a profession for each color (would have been nice to show women doing some of the things)


De colores

This one doesn’t teach the colors, but is an authentic folk song. I love this version by Joan Baez, and the mariachi version below.



El tren de colores

This one isn’t really a song, but easy to repeat and practice along with.


If you prefer a song to sing without videos, this one sung to the tune Frère Jacques is easy to learn.
