The Seat Belt Song

Contemplating why he is up so early this morning

Contemplating why he is up so early this morning

Safety is very important and one struggle I’ve seen parents have is over getting their child into the seat belt. I started singing this song when my kid fought getting into the car seat a little. He always seems to calm down and listen when I start singing, which makes it easier for me to move his arms into the straps and buckle him in. I picked a simple tune that could be repeated until all passengers have their seat belts on, thinking ahead to when he does it by himself.

The tune is nothing fancy. If you know solfege, it’s sol mi mi, sol mi mi, fa fa fa fa re re sol mi mi. Sol mi mi, sol mi mi, fa fa fa fa re do mi do do. If you don’t know solfege, just make up a tune that works for you.

Seat belt on, seat belt on, everybody put their seat belt on.

Seat belt on, seat belt on, everybody put their seat belt on!
