Kids Songs for Hand Washing - Stuck at Home & Need Help?



Are you stuck at home?

 and

Need Help?


The Kids Must Wash Their Hands!!!


BUT


Are they Tired of Singing Happy Birthday all the time?

YES!!!!




Would you like ideas to use with your kids and grandkids instead of the Happy Birthday Song?


Some people were tired of this weeks ago so I'm going to put up videos & free printables for you to use to teach your children new songs that are the right length for our

(at least) 20sec. handwashing routines.



CHECK BACK REGULARLY FOR A NEW SONG.

and 

Please read to the end of the post as there is a
 TIP for the parents

1.  I Like the Pit Pit Patter of the Raindrops.


A song our grandkids love to sing in the car with us and if you sing it through at the speed I sing it in the video then it is just over the 20 secs. But if you want to sing it fast then sing it twice and it will be the more than enough time for that important handwash time.

Now watch the video below to learn the tune












2.  Wash Your Hands  (to Baby Shark).


Everyone loves Baby Shark so why not change the words slightly

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do one later).


The Words:

Wash Your Hands    (instead of Baby Shark)

sing it twice

 or 

why not personalize it by getting the children sing each others names or your name

ie.  Wash your hands  mummy, mummy, mummy
      Wash your hands  daddy, daddy, daddy
      Wash your hands  nanny, nanny, nanny
      Wash your hands  grandpa, grandpa, grandpa







3.  Love One Another Like Sister and     Brother.


A song that is very easy to learn and very easy to sing and definitely lasts over the 20 secs. Fred timed me before we did the video and he said 25 secs.  But I think I actually sang it slower on the video than I did when he was timing me.

4.  I Can Do All Things .


This is a song that will help the kids to learn a Bible Verse at the same time so a double blessing here.

It's based on Philippians 4 v 13  and the reference is actually included in the song too.







Click through HERE for a sound recording of the song that Fred and I make a few years back.


Hopefully I will add a video for the song later.

WORDS

I can do all things, all things.
I can do all things, all things.
I can do all things, all things.
Through Christ
Through Christ
Through Christ
Who strengthens me
Philippians  4  13
Philippians  4  13
Philippians  4  13


This song was always very easy to learn because of the repetition.






5.  Jesus Love is Very Wonderful .



Normally sung as a great action song but this one is a good length for hand-washing.

TIP.  The Lords Prayer.    


Parents what an opportunity this is to teach your children the Lords Prayer.

Of course before you do this you might like to use the time you are washing your hands to say the Lords Prayer because my son did tell me that it is the right length for our 20 sec hand washing regime.

Our oldest son is a Pastor and Theology lecturer in a Bible College and he assures me he instructed his students to use this as a good opportunity to pray while they were all still at the college during the start of this awful time, now they have gone home and the teaching is all online.

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do a nice Graphic for you  later).
