Silly Songs That Enforce Family Rules – Every family has its own weird little quirks… In our family, we tend to sing silly songs about family rules…Or whatever really! Just today my husband was telling me about a song that he and the boys made up in the car on their way back from a haircut.
It goes a little something like this… SIR is a pie, SIR is a pie, SIR is a pie… A smartie pie – And each kid gets to carry on with the song, filling in whatever pie they want to be.
Yup, it’s a little weird and super silly, but the kids love it!
We use the same theory when trying to enforce or remind our children about a house rule. Some songs we have adapted from TV shows, some come from their teachers, and some are just, well, homemade :)
Here’s a list of our 5 most used silly songs that enforce family rules…
We use all different kinds of tunes from RAP to Country…
It’s great fun, and I would highly recommend that you try it out with your kids. Obviously, our kiddo’s are still little, so this seems fun for them, I would hate to try it out on a teenager… Whoops…
Love the idea behind this and have to say I agree with all 5 of your songs! I might even steel them for my two kids..
These are so cute and make the day seem brighter when doing things we may not necessarily think are fun. #GlobalBlogging
We sing along to everything at our house! We don’t have kids just Mollie Dog who gets sang too constantly …usually along these lines “mollie moo, mollie moo mummy is lovinggggggg you !! ‘ and other things.
This post made me giggle #globalblogging
hahaha great idea sounds like lots of fun#GlobalBlogging
Great idea! No 4 and 5 is regular tunes in our house.. A fun way to get little one to understand family rules. #globalblogging
This is absolutely brilliant I love them I am definitely going to steal them thanks for hosting #globalblogging
Very sweet. I want, doesn’t get is a common one in our house.
Haha, great idea! My son is very musical, learning to speak via music, so something similar could work for him later. #globalblogging
Fab idea. We do the same for a lot of things… it’s more fun (for everyone involved lol). Number 5 almost sounds like a rap song;)
My kids and I like to make up songs about our cat. It’s silly, but it makes us laugh and is definitely a bonding time!
We do “You get what you get and you dont throw a fit.”
What great songs and an amazing way to teach children life lessons and values. Love it! #globalblogging
This is cute! We love singing ao mughts teal some of these! If me and hubby are disagreeing(see arguing) we sing everything that we r saying it started of me saying shut up in a classical falseto then exanded! We find it takes the anger out of any situation and in humour calm is restored #Globalblogging
I go around singing everything in our house. Now the kids are a bit older they think I’m crazy but it keeps me sane. Love your family tradition #globalblogging
oh my gosh I love them! What a fun idea! #globalblogging
What a great idea! I am giggling at the thought of my hubby singing songs with us now! #globalblogging
Hi, Jacqui!! ;-)
You made my day with this post!! I can’t stop laughing ;-) I love this idea of the silly songs but I have a teenager at home right now and I was just thinking what he would say if I’d start one of those silly songs! Haha! Maybe I should try! ;-)
I really think that this works very good with younger children ;-)
Thank you for this wonderful post!
I wish you a wonderful week! #globalblogging
Such a great idea! #globalblogging
My daughter and I love singing songs, too, although we aren’t making songs about rules yet. She’s still pretty young. I laughed at the teenager bit..yeah.. that might not go so well. #globalblogging
BTW, it’s my first time joining your linky. Is it ok if I display your badge on my sidebar rather than the post? Let me know if that’s not ok. Thanks!
Hi Paula… Yeah, teenagers might be a bit more difficult ?? Happy for you to put the badge on the sidebar. Thanks for joining us!!! X
I love the idea of enforcing house rules with a fun song like you guys do. We’ve definitely made up songs to get the little one brush her teething before ;-) Emily #GlobalBlogging
Very cute idea! My 5 year old loves to sing and narrate her life. She may already have made up some songs of her own! When the kids were in daycare there were songs for everything. There must be some truth in signing your chores. The kids liked the Clean Up song!
What a great idea, it’s good to find different ways to get our message across to the kids, I love this. Theres always alot of singing and dancing going on so this would fit in fine at our house:)
It sounds like you have lots of fun in your house. #globalblogging
What a lovely songs:) good ideas obviously. I need to try it with my boys
What a great idea to get everyone to remember things in a fun way. Sorry for late comment this week, have been struck down with a virus. #GlobalBlogging
Brill idea. I remember the ‘I Want…. Doesn’t Get’ from my parents! #Globalblogging
Great idea. Team work is a fav in our house #globalblogging
