Get Moving With Nursery Rhymes!

Nursery rhymes are not just for crafting, they can get you moving too! We had a lot of fun acting out some of our favorite nursery rhymes.

We climbed up the stairs just like the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" climbed up the water spout.

We rolled on the floor just like "Jack and Jill" tumbled down that hill.

We looked for our sheep just like "Little Bo Peep."

We ran away from the spider just like "Little Miss Muffet" did.

We rowed our boats and sang "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."

We pretended to climb a clock just like the mouse in "Hickory, Dickory Dock."

We walked crooked just like the crooked man in "There Was a Crooked Man."

And, if you missed it earlier this week, we also jumped over candlesticks just like "Jack Be Nimble."

The next time your stuck indoors, start acting out your favorite nursery rhymes. Get moving and have fun!


  1. I love this idea! I am a preschool teacher and this will come in handy this winter as we can't go outside if it's under 30 degrees. I found you on the Play Academy. You should also consider linking up to my Thinky Linky Thursday whenever you want.

  2. Hi Terri, what a wonderful idea. The children will learn a lot faster through example and how much fun they are having. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. This is a great idea to get the kids moving while stuck indoors and so much fun! Thanks for sharing:)
