49 Best Preschool Clean Up Songs on Youtube

Fun ends when it’s to time to clean up. While playtime is an essential part of kids’ daily routine, putting the toys back to their proper places should also be a part of it. Here is a list of best preschool clean up songs on Youtube to make packing up a breeze.

Cleaning up should not just be the parents’ job. Having 3 kids playing with different sets of toys makes the house a big mess! And as a mom, my only wish before the day end is to see my kids sleep soundly at night free of clutter. I can’t do all the cleaning by myself nor do I want to be a monster mom nagging everybody to put their toys away.

How I Teach My Kids to Clean Up

We may have different perceptions of how early we can teach our preschoolers to tidy up their room. But for me, I teach them how to clean up or at least pick up a toy as early as 1 year old. Here are the ways how I get cleaning up done with my kids.

Turn cleaning up into a play

Toddlers have very short attention span. They won’t even last 3 minutes cleaning up their toys continuously. My 1 year old also whines when it’s time to pack up. It makes him feel like I’m taking away his privilege to play. To make cleaning up more interesting, I put out the bins and do a tossing game. Whoever tosses the most toys into the bins win. Second, I also do role playing. When my boy just won’t put his dinosaur or excavator down, I let them bid goodbye or goodnight and put it back straight to the chest. Third, and this is usually between my 2 older boys, a race who can finish cleaning up first.

Lead by example

There is no better way to teach our young to clean up but by showing them how to do it properly. I don’t want my kids to feel that picking up their toys after play is a punishment or a consequence so I do it myself first. It creates a normalcy in the household that everybody is responsible for their own mess.

No clean up, no screen time

Our daily screen time schedule follows right after playtime. Before they get the privilege to watch on their tablets or tv, the room should be clean. It gets the room done in no time.

Mom is sad strategy

When no one bothers to give me a hand even after asking my kids several times to help me clean up, I put a frown face and say, “I am very sad, no one is helping nanay (mom).” And whose kids want their mom sad? No one. After the room is done, I put back my smiling face, kiss my boys and give my thanks.

Reward system

There are several ways I reward my kids when they did a good job cleaning up their toys. I use reward stickers, additional screen time and a special treat/snacks. For my eldest, who can now understand the value of money, I sometimes compensate him for doing tasks around the house. He has the choice to put it in his savings or spending.

Sing a song

While it is no fun to clean up after playtime, we make it a dance party through songs. I often use the classic Clean Up song but I change the lyrics a bit with their names. It goes like this.

“Clean up, clean up, everybody, everywhere. Clean Up, clean up, (name) does his share.”

No matter how off I sing the tune, they don’t really matter as long as I recognize their efforts to clean up.

Here’s the lyrics of Every Mess I Make by Badanamu.

Oh no, what a mess. I spilled glitter on the floor now.
Watch your step! Oh no, I must confess.
I spilled paint everywhere now.
What a mess!

But it’s okay.
I know what to do.
I’ll grab a sponge and a mop and grab a broom!

And I’ll clean today. Every mess I make.
And I’ll wash away. Every mess I make.

Oh no, what a mess. I spilled glue on the floor now.
Watch your step! Oh no, I must confess.
I dropped paper everywhere now.
What a mess!


Shake to the beat.
Move your feet.
Clean clean clean now. (x2)
Clean, scrub! Give it a little love
Clean, scrub! Until it’s all done.
Sweep, mop! Give it all you got.
Sweep, mop! Until its all done.

49. I Can Clean Up Toys Song by Super Jojo


When I ask my kids to clean up, they will probably pick up a toy or two and then go back to playing. It may take small steps to get them the cleaning up habit but at least we are trying. The more I encourage them to do little tasks, the more they will learn the value of responsibility. As my kids learn accountability of their own mess at home, I am also preparing them to be responsible citizens and adults when they grow up.

  1. Wow, this is an awesome list of clean-up songs for preschoolers! I am a big fan of using music throughout the day and using songs to help get my daughter to clean up her toys or help with a chore. It is definitely a struggle with one, two, and three-year-olds. The song we use often is “This is the way we clean up” to the tune of “Here we go round the mulberry bush.” We also love Music Together, and they have a song called “Clap, clap, clap your hands together” and I use that tune to sing “Clean, clean, clean up, let’s clean up together”

  2. Such a long list of songs! I’ll have to return and listen to some more. Great suggestions to get the kiddos to help.

  3. One of my rules in our house is the ” no cleanup, no screen time ” policy, and I always play their favorite song to encourage them to clean their mess.
