Granny’s in the Kitchen! This is a kids’ action song about making a chocolate cake, yum!

A Fun Action Song for kids to Develop New Skills

Pre-K and kindergarten-aged children will love this song, as it’s a great and playful way to learn new things. The children get introduced to different ways of moving, which helps them get more conscious of their body and how it works – as well as raising their spatial awareness.

It also trains their listening skills, as well as their musical skills: they’ll (try to) tap to the beat, join in with a repeated verse, and learn the dynamics of singing or playing instruments loudly or softly.

Use this song with real musical instruments for kids – or get some kitchen utensils as props!

Lyrics to “Granny’s in the Kitchen”:

Granny’s in the kitchen
Gonna help her make a chocolate cake
Granny’s in the kitchen
Gonna help her make a chocolate cake
She’s bashing around and making a sound
Granny’s in the kitchen

Granny’s in the kitchen
Gonna get there soon so I can lick the spoon
Granny’s in the kitchen
Gonna get there soon so I can lick the spoon
She’s bashing around and making a sound,
Granny’s in the kitchen
Granny’s in the kitchen. Granny’s in the kitchen (x2)
She’s bashing around and making a sound,
Granny’s in the kitchen.

4, 3, 2, 1!

Gonna cook it in the oven and I know that I’ll be loving that chocolate cake (x 2)
She’s bashing around and making a sound,
Granny’s in the kitchen

Granny’s in the kitchen. Granny’s in the kitchen (x2)
She’s bashing around and making a sound,
Granny’s in the kitchen
