As we say here in Japan, “Hisashiburi!”, which means “Long time, no see!” We had a very busy Fall and Winter with lots of travel, lots of presentations, and the release of Super Simple Halloween Songs and Super Simple Christmas Songs. The next big holiday we are looking forward to is Valentine’s Day!
Our favorite song for Valentine’s Day is Skidamarink. It is, of course, super simple and super fun. We usually play the song in the background as we make Valentine’s Day cards or explore some Valentine’s Day worksheets. By the time we are finished with the cards or worksheets, all of the kids are familiar with the melody and most of the words and are ready to learn the gestures and sing.
Many people ask us what “Skidamarink” means. The answer is… nothing. It’s just a fun word kids really enjoy playing with.
Check out the song, lyrics, gestures, video, and FREE Valentine’s Day worksheets on our Skidamarink page.
We’d love to know what you do for Valentine’s Day. Let us know by leaving a comment!
Skidamarink a dinky dink. Skidamarink a doo. We love you!
