You Will Need:
Your child and something to clean up
When it is time to clean up, sing or say, “Tick, tock, tick, tock, hands around the clock. A time for work, a time for play, a time to put our shoes (toys, milk, etc.) away.” You can make up your own tune or simply say the rhyme.
Keep singing the song until the task is complete. Your child will begin to recognize that it’s clean-up time when they hear the song or rhyme.
