First thing you have to do is to introduce new songs for your little kids. You can sing those songs facing your children. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended that you use some media, like computer, iPod, mp3 or mp4 player. With your media they will be more excited since those media players are capable of doing the songs with the music instruments which make them easier listening.

Then, one necessity you need to do is to practice singing the songs with your little kids as frequently as possible. Repeat the song which is apparently new for them so that they can understand and memorize the lyrics. Don't give way too many songs in one time because they will be confused and feel challenging to remember them. Besides, choose individuals with simple lyrics.

Once your children have known the tunes, ask them to sing together with you or with their friends. It is possible to sing that songs anywhere and when around them, like when they are getting dressed, going to sleep, or washing hands). Before they start the day or are prepared for school, try to ask them to sing a song with you. It will increase their mood so your little children will feel happy during the day, especially their school time.

Make use of your creativity to make educative songs. Ensure that the songs are simple and easy for them. Or, you can look any songs on the net.
