Toy taxi with title: The Taxi Song

Have you ever focused on taxis as your preschool theme? Perhaps you focused on cab drivers as part of your theme of community helpers, or occupations? Or maybe it was a book that spurred your child’s interest in taxis. Regardless of the reason, it can be tricky to find good songs on this topic. That’s why I created this new preschool song about taxis.

 

Tips for singing the Taxi Song

I like to start this song by pretending to look for a taxi, then pointing and exclaiming, “I see a taxi!” At this point, I launch into the song. After singing the song once, I will pause and say, “I think we should go somewhere else now. I know, let’s go to the airport. That means we need to look for another taxi. Oh, there one is!”

Depending on your children’s age and the size of your group, you may be able to let your children choose the destinations.

*As this is an original song, please be sure to include my name as the songwriter any time you share this song.
