Nursery Rhymes: Part 2


Okay, here goes Nursery Rhymes– Part 2!!  If you missed the first part to this blog, check out Nursery Rhymes– Part 1.  As described in the first blog, nursery rhymes are really very helpful for your child’s language development.  This is also a great way to interact with your child.  There are so many activities you can do with each nursery rhyme.  Some, like “I’m a Little Teapot”, have hand movements that encourages your child’s kinesthetic side.  If you are interested in simple arts and crafts type ideas, there are a TON on Pinterest you could check out.  I’ve seen cut and glue projects for “Humpty Dumpty” and telling time activities that coincide with “Hickory Dickory Dock”.  You could really let your imagination run wild with ways to interact with your littles in regards to nursery rhymes!


I know so many kids love to color!  Plus, it is always good to have something for your littles to do while at a restaurant or stuck in the car for an extended time.  There are free printable nursery rhyme color sheets here!

Below, you will find a few more nursery rhymes:

Baa, Baa Black Sheep
Baa, baa, black sheep
Have you any wool?
“Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full!”

Once for the master,
One for the dame
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses
and all the king’s men,
couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
and Jill came tumbling after.

Little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet,
eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider and sat down beside her,
and frightened Miss Muffet away.

Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle,
the cat and the fiddle,
the cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun,
and the dish ran away with the spoon.

Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
If you see a crocodile,
Don’t forget to scream!

I’m a Little Teapot
I’m a little teapot, short and stout.
Here is my handle, here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout:
Tip me over and pout me out!

This Little Piggy
This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy went wee, wee, wee
All the way home!

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

I hope you found some great ways to interact with your child in this article!  Remember, if you missed the first part of this post, check out Nursery Rhymes– Part 1.
