This song flows to the old tune of Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake Your Booty by K.C. & the Sunshine Band. It's a bit silly in some parts, but it gets toddlers to slow down and really wash. You can sing it at circle time while acting out the song or sing it while actually washing the child's hands. Because children tend to rush through this usually boring task, therefore not washing their hands sufficiently, many people suggest getting them to sing a song like the ABC's to learn how long to scrub. I created this related song to keep preschoolers focused while actually learning what to do.
Wash, Wash, Wash -
Wash Your Hands
Rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse your hands.
Dry, dry, dry, dry your hands.
