The Ultimate All About Me Dance Party for Kids

How can we help build kid’s self-esteem for future success? Sometimes it’s hard to think of concrete ways to do it but all about me units are one of my very favorite ways. We spend a couple of weeks celebrating each unique thing about the kids and highlighting their uniqueness.

It’s amazing to watch their faces light up and see them taking pleasure in studying themselves. Self-esteem and social skills are two of the most important things kids need to succeed in life and all about me units work on both.

We love to sing a song to the tune of skip to my lou, it’s one of the kid’s favorites and it goes like this:

I like you there’s no doubt about it, I like you there’s no doubt about it, I like you there’s no doubt about, you are my good friend.

Then we sing it about each person.

We like Christina, there’s no doubt about it

We like Christina, there’s no doubt about it

We like Christina, there’s no doubt about it

She is our good friend!

Children’s party

This year during our all about me unit, I decided to throw the kids an all about me dance party. The kids loved it.

The day before we decorated. I found a few dance party signs from the internet and printed them out and the kids chose where to hang them up. They love doing stuff like this. I’m not that into decorating, but they sure do get a kick out of it so I let them do it their own way.

I have a disco ball on hand and some flashy lights, so I put those out as well and turned them on for the party. So much fun!

Dance party for toddlers

The first activity for the party was dancing! We danced in between each activity to a different genre of music. I feel like kids should be exposed to all kinds of music so we use different things for different events. We did country, classic rock, contemporary Christian, modern love songs, and some classical. The kids loved them all.




Dancing is a great stress reliever, lets us use our energy, is great exercise, and is wonderful for building social skills. Kids should dance as often as they can (and so should we).

All about me activities for kids

After our first round of dancing, we made our faces. I had different colors of faces the kids could choose from. I let them choose whatever color they think they are. You can also get cut out bodies, or even use big bulletin board paper to trace the kids and let them decorate that. We have done all different things here and they all turn out great.

Once they chose the color for their face, we talked about what is on our faces, eyes, nose, mouth, etc. The kids drew their faces however they wanted to.

Another activity we did was designing record album covers. I bought the kids blank album jackets and they got to choose how they wanted to decorate them. I thought they were super groovy and retro. They loved creating their designs.

Each child chose a name for the album they would create. Some chose country, some chose rock and roll, it was up to each child to determine what they wanted to make.

Kid’s dance party favors

I made microphones for the kids to take home. We sang with them for a while as well. I printed off some microphone tops that I made on canva and taped them to mini m and m tubes for handles. I thought I was very clever thinking of that. Ha ha.
