The Cheese Stands Alone
Make your next clean-up time a little more fun by making up a song to go along with the process. We use "Farmer in the Dell": "The dolls go on the shelf, the dolls go on the shelf. High ho the derry-oh, the dolls go on the shelf." At the end, while standing in a clean room, we always sing, "The child stands alone," mimicking every kid's favorite part of the song. Not only are you reinforcing singing and rhythm skills, but you're also helping your child to remember where things go in the room.
