The researcher mentions the continuation of the children popular songs as an educational milieu in Bahrain, therefore it is required to protect the best of these songs from forget, loose, and the domination of the present civilization, particularly the incoming one. The researcher proposes a number of suggestions and recommendations to protect children popular songs, such as the organization of an annual festival for these songs, simultaneously with the celebration of the national feast, recording these songs in Cds so as not to be forgotten because of the domination of violent new songs, protecting them in a patrimony center by constituting teams responsible for collecting these songs, performing them with voice, image and motion by children, recording cartoon movies for these songs that characterize the spirit of belonging and citizenship, projecting them on Bahraini TV among programs for this purpose, constituting a team directed by an academic expert responsible for composing the most famous songs and hymns, editing them on Cds or movies or books, and involving school books with a number of these songs.
