Today I am handing my blog over for the first time. One of my oldest friends Mrs H is writing my first ever guest post (no pressure then!). I hope you enjoy it.

So without further ado,  over to you Mrs H.

“Everyone, everyone!”… Is the chant of my pre-schooler as he choreographs and organises play amongst his peers one afternoon a week (usually in fancy dress). They take little notice of him and crack on playing how they want to, which is usually different from everyone else and so recently they have been getting quite messy.

We’ve adopted from the preschool that he and his younger sister attend the concept of a tidy up song. The idea is that you have a key song,  and if you play it your little folk know that its time to tidy and that the tidying up needs to be done by the end of the song! It’s a race basically.

Finding your song is trial and error. It needs to be catchy. I’ve found borderline annoying works (because that’s what these little folk love) but most importantly long enough to get the job done.

We’ve tried the Muppets song and a few dodgy 90’s dance hits but finally settled on the Crazy Frog. Well,  all of us have with the exception of our chief play organiser. He’s very much behind The British national anthem which he belts out at the top of his voice with pride and vigour claiming that its long enough to tidy up to. Of course it isn’t nearly long enough for the typical amount of mess but in fairness to him it is long enough for him because his play at the moment is being bossy!

Everyone, everyone! What are your thoughts on a tidy up song? Will you be trying one out?
