Want to make life easier for a toddler? Sing a song. Sing a song while he poops, while he dresses for school. Sing a song while he bathes, sing a song while he brushes his teeth! Here is my 3-year-old’s favorite song to brush his teeth to.
What’s great about the Brush Your Teeth song:
(a) It’s easy to learn.
(b) It’s catchy.
(c) It’s about two minutes long — just the right length of time needed when brushing teeth.
This is Timmy brushing along to the song. We don’t always have the iPad on when he brushes his teeth — this was a special treat for him. He brushes along to my singing just fine
Do you sing songs to your kids while they brush their teeth or do other things (washing hands, dressing up)? Please share! Songs are great ways to time tasks and chores. We’d love to learn more songs!
