7 Nursery Rhyme Themed Activities

As it's World Nursery Rhyme Week this week, I thought it would be a nice idea to share some Nursery Rhyme activities you can do with your little ones. Some are for really young children, and some are slightly more complicated, for older children. But if your little ones love their nursery rhymes, then I'm sure you'll find a fun activity to do together!


We have been celebrating World Nursery Rhyme week by putting together a fun Nursery Rhyme Song Activity Basket. We included lots of my little one's favourite nursery rhymes, and it's a great activity that can be used over and over again. You can even add to it when your little ones learn new nursery rhymes! 


The Owl & The Pussycat is one of of my favourite poems! I used to absolutely love it as a child. I don't think my little ones know it very well yet, but I can't wait to read it with them when they are a bit older! RedTedArt have put together this really lovely activity based on the poem, I love how cute the characters turned out!

The Wheels On The Bus is such a classic nursery rhyme! One of my little one's favourites. It's great because it has so many different verses & actions! Sophie's Nursery have created a variety of fun Wheels On The Bus themed activities for all different ages! 

Hickory Dickory Dock used to be another one of my favourite Nursery Rhymes too! I used to have this really fun book with the nursery rhyme in, bright illustrations & noisy buttons. I still remember some of the sounds now. Haha. The Gingerbread House shared a fun Hickory Dickory Dock themed activity on her blog. It's a great activity that your little ones can do alone, with very little help. 

Do you want to know something funny? My little girlie didn't actually know Humpty Dumpty was an egg! I guess she had only heard the song and never actually seen any pictures. She does love the song though. If your little ones are big fans of Humpty Dumpty too, here's a fun egg themed activity

If I had to say which one nursery rhyme is my little ones favourite - it would definitely be Wind The Bobbin Up! I think it's all the actions and the clapping! It's the first song my little guy ever learnt and it's so sweet when they sing it together. Lets Play Kids share the actions for the song as well as the idea of your little ones creating their own bobbins.

Last but not least - Incy Wincy Spider! I found out the other day that there are actually a lot more verses to this song than I ever knew! (As long as you don't sing 'Itsy Bitsy' *cringe). This song is very versatile with the amount of activities you can do and there are lots of fun ideas here!

What is your little ones favourite Nursery Rhyme?
