There are so many wonderful nursery rhymes that we thought we would help you along with some of the old original words. Remember, they can also be turned into a singing session with your toddlers or even used for pretend play acting.
Mary had a little lamb,
Its feece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.
Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner,
Eating his Chrismas pie;
He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”
Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish
To set before the king?
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
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!
