I don’t spend a lot of time giving themes to my music lessons, but sometimes it is just so fun to do several songs on a theme. Today, I’m sharing a food song for preschoolers AND next week I’ll do the same. So, whether you’re specifically looking for a food song for preschoolers, or just here to get another great recommendation, get ready for two weeks of food songs!
RavioliThis playful song uses the tune to the classic French song, “Alouette.” I think it might have been a boy scout or camp song originally, but like many camp songs, it’s repetitive and GREAT for preschoolers.
The simple and often-repeated chorus says:
Ravioli, I like Ravioli,
Ravioli, it’s the food for me.
Then, the leader asks where the ravioli is:
call: Do I have it on my chin?
response: Yes you have it on your chin?
And so on. Pick any body part or piece of clothing and watch the giggles start to come!
Here is a version to listen to on youtube:
I don’t have another version that I love. So I recommend that you learn the song and then ditch the recordings in favor of your own singing.
Stay tuned for another food-themed Handpicked Song Recommendation next week!
