Nursery Rhymes for All Ages (6-5-15)


From Summer Activities for Children, Part 1:

Read your child some nursery rhymes – even if he seems to have “outgrown” them. You can find them in library books or on Internet sites.46 Sidebar 2

For younger children, have them do an art project about one they like. They can draw, paint, make a sculpture, or make up a song or dance.

For older children, ask them what they think the nursery rhyme meant when it was written, or what they think it could mean if someone wrote it today. For example, what could the water stand for that Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch? Who could the three men in the tub be and what were they doing there?

Come back to Daily Parenting Tips each day for another fun activity.
