Most Nursery Rhymes can be found online, but they will absorb more if they can hold a book-especially one with colorful illustrations. Examples are duck, duck, goose; the shoe game (hide their shoes around the house and have them find them), I spy, follow the leader, a birthday parade (using pots and pans from around the house), and rhyme time game.

We've sung This is the way we brush our teeth to the Mulberry bush tune, Three big whales went swimming one day to the tune of Five little ducks went swimming one day and Pitter, patter compost while emptying the potato sacks.

I created this cute piggy craft for International Mud Day, but it would work well with a piggy nursery rhyme too if you changed the words you put with it. Adults traced the circles for the body, head and snout, triangles for ears, and squares for legs, then the children cut them out.
