7 GREAT SONGS THAT HELP WITH OUR DAILY TODDLER ROUTINE

Our daily toddler routine can be called sometimes a daily toddler struggle. From brushing teeth, through dressing up to bathing, our 2.5 year-old can magically turn from time to time every single part of our daily toddler routine into a debate and resistance. And then of course, everything takes hours.

7 great songs that help with your daily toddler routine

I guess, that everyone who has a toddler, experiences every now and then if not daily this resistance and the toddler’s firm NO.

Well, where words fail music speaks, as Hans Cristian Andersen famously said. He he must have known it best, since he created some of the most beloved (but also quite depressing) children’s stories. Despite this, when he was right, he was right.

Therefore, never forget that life is easier and better when you sing. So, music maestro!

We’ve rounded up 7 great songs, that helped us to turn resistance into a smooth singing daily toddler routine.

Well worth to try it out at home!

Dinner, Bath, Bedtime

Quite some time ago, I’ve read a great article about the “perfect storm” of dinner, baths and bed time that pushes parental stress levels to their peak. According to it, parents spend a total of 177 days – almost six months – of their lives feeding and bathing their children, as well as battling to put them to bed before they reach the age of 10. So, why battling, when singing is much better and releases stress? Try out these two songs – life is better with them.

6. The Bath Song | Super Simple Songs

“Can you wash your hair?” In our case, usually the answer is NO with crying. And it’s not only crying, Aiden looks terrified. Good that I googled why some toddlers hate to wash their hair. So thankful, I found quite good and logical explanation from AHA! Parenting. And since then, we are singing and washing the hair very seldom with water, however Aiden practices washing hair in front of the mirror with no water daily. Still pretty good! Step by step.

So, “The Bath Song” is a super fun kids song and helps your toddler learn the parts of their body. And it’s a lot of fun to sing in the bath!

I can wash my hair.
