Kwanzaa Songs For Preschoolers

Easy and fun Kwanzaa songs for preschoolers through second grade.


Sung to the tune of Spiderman.

Kwanzaa-Man! Kwanzaa-Man!
Coming straight out of Africa Land
Mishumaa Saba! I put those in my Kinara.
Jambo!
Here comes Kwanzaa Maaaaaaan!

Corn and mats! Corn and mats!
Kwanzaa uses corn and mats!
Habari gani? Today’s the day of Imani!
Mkeka, Muhindi, and Zawadi!

Kikombe cha Umoja, filled up with fruit ambrosia. Dr. Maulauna Karenga. Creator of the Kwanzaa.
Jambo! Here comes the Kwanzaa-Man!
On “Jumapili” I’ll have a Kwanzaa party.
Sunday night, don’t be late! You need not be black to celebrate!
Twende! ‘Cause I bought way too much corn.

Repeat 7 times, for 7 days, in commemoration of the Seven Principles. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an abnormal amount of corn I have to deal with.


I got this song out of Celebrate the Months December
(sung to the tune of BINGO)

There is a holiday that I know, and Kwanzaa is its name oh
candle lights and food so good,
all around my neighborhood,
love and thanks for all that’s good,
and Kwanzaa is its name oh.


(tune: John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt)

K-W-A-N-Z-A-A

Kwanzaa is almost here!

We celebrate first fruits,

We give thanks for our roots,

We’re so glad Kwanzaa is almost here!

K-W-A-N-Z-A-A


one little, two little, three little candles

four little, five little, six little candles

seven little candles shine for Kwanza

shining in the kinara

three little red and three little green ones

black in the middle shines a little taller

shine little candles, shine for Kwanza

shining in the kinara


tune: Twinkle, Twinkle

Kwanzaa is a time to light
A glowing candle every night
A time to show How much we care
A time to think about the past
And values that we want to last


Sung to: “Three Blind Mice”

Red, green, black,

Red, green, black.

Kwanzaa’s here,

Kwanzaa’s here.

The decorations are quite a sight,

We light a candle every night,

The holiday is filled with light.

Kwanzaa’s here.
