Naturally, I had all sorts of great resolutions for 2013. I was very excited to dive in to the new year and make sure you got all kinds of great new programs IMMEDIATELY. I mean, I know you have just been waiting with baited breath for what new fun is coming out of Cabinet of Curiosities…right?
Unfortunately, right after the holidays my son and I both got the flu! Nothing grinds productivity to a halt like a miserable baby and an out-of-it Momma. Thankfully we are on the mend now and I should be able to get back on track soon. Until then, since I’ve got battling germs on the brain, you’ll have to be satisfied with a hand-washing song.
Yup, you read that right! It is a song about washing your hands that was written by the amazingly talented Alison Brake (music teacher at the preschool I worked at). Why? Well, we all know that hand-washing is key for preventing illness. However, getting your little one to actually focus on doing it right can be hard. Most of the kiddos I know dump the soap on their hands and immediately run them under water, not realizing that the scrubbing is really what gets the job done.
To encourage them to actually scrub get them to sing this song through BEFORE they rinse their hands. Singing it twice through would be best, but once through is better then nothing! The tune is “Row Row Row Your Boat.” Enjoy!
Wash, wash, wash your hands
Wash them every day
When you rub the soap around, you wash the germs away!
