Skidamarink Lyrics and Actions

♫ Skidamarink a dink a dink. [Put your right elbow in your left hand and wiggle your fingers.]
Skidamarink a doo. [Put your left elbow in your right hand and wiggle your fingers.]
I love you. [Point to yourself, hug yourself, and point to the other people in your group.]

Skidamarink a dink a dink.
Skidamarink a doo.
I love you.

I love you in the morning. [Make a big circle over your head with your arms, like the sun. Bend over to one side.]
And in the afternoon. [Stand up straight with your arms above you.]
I love you in the evening. [Bend over to the other side.]
And underneath the moon. [Make a small circle in front of your chest with your hands and move it over your head.]

Skidamarink a dink a dink.
Skidamarink a doo.
I love you.

(Repeat) ♫

Classroom Benefits

"Skidamarink" is a very sweet song and great for teaching around Valentine's Day. The gestures and silly lyrics are fun enough that they will keep the attention of older learners and captivate younger learners even if they can't follow along completely.

It's a great song for Parent/Child classes. Parent and child can face each other and sing! And it's a nice choice around Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day, or any day children want to share a little love.

Activity Ideas

This song continues on with just music so you can make up your own silly lyrics. For example, change it to, "Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a dee, I love ME!!" or "Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a daa, I love Pizzaaaaa!" 1

"Skidamarink" is a great performance song! If the setting permits, beforehand have the children cut out lots of tiny pink and red hearts. Put them into heart-shaped pockets hanging around their necks. Wear these during the performance. At the end of the song, the children sprinkle the hearts over their parents or in front of them. (Be sure to have a broom handy!) 2

To get an extra big "Awwww" from parents during a performance, have the kids blow them a kiss at the end. 3
