Move: Bath Time Fun

We all want to have fun with our kids...why not fit snuggles, laughs, and smiles into things you are already doing during the day? Valerie (profile below) has a sweet, fun way to make the mundane, memorable! 

When I was little, my mom would say this little poem while she helped me dry off after my bath. I loved it then, and I still love it today. I know she read it in a book at some point, but I have no idea which one, so I am unable to give credit. Just know that I'm not claiming to have written it! ;) I've used it with each one of my kiddos and they laugh every time! I thought I'd pass it along. It's a simple way to make a fun memory with your little toddlers.

After My Bath*

After my bath, I try, try, try,
To wipe myself till I'm dry, dry, dry. 

Hands to wipe, fingers and toes,
Two wet legs and a shiny nose!

Just think how much less time I'd take,
If I were a dog and could shake, shake, shake!

* Add motions for even more fun!

Valerie loves her job as a pastor's wife and as a homeschooling mom of five kids.She enjoys studying God's word and sharing her love for Him on her blog: She's also a contributor to Home School Enrichment Magazine.

I'm smiling to think of all the little ones who are going to grow up hearing this now!
