As we enjoyed our Fairy Tale Crafts video so much, we thought we would get together and do a Nursery Rhyme Crafts and Activities video too! By nursery rhymes, I mean poems and songs – basically any poems or songs that make your childhood special. The children had a great time exploring Nursery Rhymes through crafts and are always asking me now whether we could make something to go with “Jack and Jill” or with 5 Monkeys on a Bed… I can see this Nursery Rhyme theme continuing for some time!
This week, I have a DIFFERENT set of crafts joining us with their nursery rhymes, they are all fabulous and it is great to have these wonderful guests.
So. Nursery Rhymes Video:
