Spanish song for kids

Familiar tunes make it easy for kids to learn songs in Spanish. This color song is to the tune of Ten Little Fingers, the one that goes: One little, two little, three little fingers…

One way to sing this song is with just the color words. You can hear the song using the link at the end of the post. Lots of people teach café instead of marrón, and it fits in the song just as well. These are the lyrics:

Rojo, amarillo, azul y verde,
negro, morado y anaranjado,
blanco, marrón (café) y rosado
y al final el gris.

You can easily clarify and reinforce the meaning of the words by having kids touch the colors as they sing. There is a link to a simple printable for kids to color (with the colors in the order of the song) at the end of this post. You can have kids cut the colors out and mix them up when they know the song and the words. Then, as you sing faster, touching the colors becomes a game. There are printables for marrón and café below.

If you are going to teach this song, you can easily add a first verse that creates some context for singing the color words. It can be anything simple that fits the tune.
For example, kids can sing:

Estos son los colores.
Estos son los colores.
Estos son los colores.
Vamos a cantarlos.

Another option is:

A mí, me gustan los colores.
A mí, me gustan los colores.
A mí, me gustan los colores.
Vamos a cantarlos.

Or in a group, kids can sing:

Nos gustan mucho los colores.
Nos gustan mucho los colores.
Nos gustan mucho los colores.
Vamos a cantarlos.
