Everyone loves a song about dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are a big theme in kid’s music, and there are tons of options out there if you are looking for some good dinosaur songs to groove to with the kids on a fun afternoon. Here is a list of our favorite dinosaur songs to start your dinosaur dance party!
Dinostory: The Ultimate Dinosaur Rock Opera
This is our top pick. It has everything you could possibly want in your dinosaur songs! It’s a full album, with songs that are not only fun but educational as well. Even though it’s geared towards kids ages 4 and up, older kids and adults will enjoy the catchy tunes that tell a story about a young triceratops who gets separated from her family and learns to survive in a dangerous world by making friends.
The Dinosaur Song – Johnny Cash
You wouldn’t normally think of Johnny Cash as a children’s entertainer, but this dinosaur song from his 1975 album, “The Johnny Cash Children’s Album” is just plain fun. He asks, “…dinosaurs would be nice pets and friends to have around to run outside and play with every day, don’t you think?”.
Perpetual Preschool has some great Dinosaur song options for you to sing with the kids. Our favorite is the dinosaur version of “We Will Rock You”. It gets the kids involved by clapping their hands and stomping their feet, while singing, “We will, we will stomp you!” Each verse teaches about a different dino in the most rockin’ way!
“Walk the Dinosaur” by Was (Not Was)
Of course, we can’t talk about dinosaur songs without mentioning this gem! The lyrics, “Boom acka-lacka boom boom!” will get stuck in your head for days, and you will find yourself mindlessly shaking your hips back and forth to the rhythm long after it’s over. This particular song plays at all our get-togethers, and it has been a crowd pleaser since its release in 1988. This one will please older kids and adults alike, and should be on everyone’s playlist!
