Teach kids their ABCs while they wash their hands

When I toilet trained my kids, I started singing the ABC's with them while they washed their hands.  By the time toilet training was done, so was learning the alphabet!

    If someone could come up with a hack for the reverse, then we’d really have something.

    I do this with teeth brushing and it works like a charm. My daughter actually looks forward to it.

    Another benefit to singing the ABC’s while hand washing is that by the time the song is sung “germs” are washed away.
