Cleaning Jingle

Baby Toddler Cleaning Up

Cleanup time can be a learning time if you sing about it with your child. “This is the way, we clean the house, so early in the morning” If they respond with sounds, use them in your song. “(Your child’s name) says, ba, ba, ba, so early in the morning”

See what your child is learning

When you sing to your child, the part of their brain that processes sound lights up, helping them make sense of what they’re hearing. It also stimulates the action part of their brain, which gets them ready to say words. Singing helps them listen to the sounds even more clearly, which helps them learn words in the future.
