    Well, I’m not sure if it’s entirely appropriate for kids, but the pop band XTC has “Senses Working Overtime”.

    Here’s the chorus:

    And all the world is biscuit-shaped,
    Its just for me to feed my face,
    And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,
    And Ive got one, two, three, four, five,
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to take this all in.
    Ive got one, two, three, four, five,
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to taste the difference,
    tween a lemon and a lime,
    Pain and the pleasure,
    And the church bells softly chime

    I’m sure it can be found on any XTC greatest hits album.

    Laura wrote in…

    How about,

    “Stop, look and listen, before you cross the street, use your eyes, use your ears, and then use your feet.”

    That is 2 of the senses anyway. Then there is the song, “feelings” but that is emotions. The game, “touch, you’re it” might be another. Does this help?

    I got this from a website when I was looking earlier – it’s got all 5 senses and is a familiar tune so all the kids have to do is learn the words and actions!

    Five Senses
    (Tune: Where is Thumbkin)

    Five senses, five senses
    We have them. We have them.
    Seeing, hearing, touching,
    Tasting and smelling.
    There are five. There are five.
