Clean Up

How many little messes those little ones (and big ones!) can create in one day! This song is the perfect length for picking up crayons and paper, tossing blocks in their box, or retiring dress-ups (we know…we’ve tried!). If parents are consistent with a familiar clean up song, whatever it is, children may even start “magically” cleaning up their mess as the song is played. Remember, the smallish crowd will do best with a parent modeling a quick pick-up with a smiling face. Don’t forget the old tricks of “See if we can get done before the song is over!” “Let’s see who can make a basket in the car bin!” or “My baby will race your baby to the doll-house!”

Clean up, everybody clean up
Choose a toy to pick up
We're done with play; put toys away
It's time to clean this mess up
