The Magic Crayons

We are a unique combination of four professional song writers and teachers all living and working in Japan as Preschool, Kindergarten and International School English Teachers.
This site contains all the songs, games, lesson plans and crafts that we have created and use within our classes every week.
We are particularly proud of our 32 amazing kindergarten songs for ESL Students, young learners and children of all ages.
Following the earthquake and tsunami disasters of 2011 we give 10% of all revenue from our Download Store to the charity Save The Children. The songs can also be purchased from iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby. Learn more about us here.
