hi all-

I am wanting some songs or chants to do with DD1 while we are doing chores (folding laundry, sweeping, cleaning the windows etc.) Does anyone have anything they chant or sing while doing these things with kids?  

 

DD1 is still having a hard time wanting to participate in these activities and I think songs would help her get excited!

 

Thanks!

I would love to hear what people share!  We use drying racks for summer and winter (when the heat is on) and my daughter, who is close in age to yours, really enjoys putting the laundry on the racks.  Do you have a small broom for her to use while you sweep?

Check out the book, This is the Way We Wash a Day. Chock full. And at three, kids are in an imitative stage. They may not help in the actual task but if you approach it w/o asking for participation she may well get caught up in the energy of your purposeful will force. If not, it'll happen, but talking about it wont help. Donna Simmons has some nice descriptions in her Christopherus kindy book.

hth!
