The kids are getting older now, and are playing independently enough that it would be good if they always had my phone number. Lily (9yo) has had a piece of paper in her backpack for a while now, but unless she's going to or from school she won't have it with her. Several rounds of "repeat after me" weren't working, so this weekend we made up a song for it. After just a few times singing it she has it down.
This may be a trick that works unusually well for Lily, since she's pretty musical, but the popularity of jingles for phone numbers in advertising makes me think this would work for others?
