The nursery rhyme matching game is a fun activity to play with your kids. Pick two characters from each nursery rhyme that coordinate together and place them on card stock and laminate them.

Draw the characters with your child and laminate them as soon as you are done so they don't get broken.
Coloring is a fantastic way to allow your kids to let their imagination run wild. Give your child a piece of paper and have them draw various characters.

If you have ever played the game "Name that Tune", then you will love playing "Name that Nursery Rhyme." For a party, divide everybody into two equal groups and read one or two lines of a well-liked nursery rhyme. Give every group a set amount of time to guess the rhyme, and if they don't guess it in time, add an additional line to the rhyme and permit both teams a chance to guess the rhyme once more. Each time you need to add a line to the rhyme, you will take away a point. The team with the most points at the end of the game is the winning team.
An additional fun nursery rhyme activity you can participate in with your child is a Rock a Bye Infant prop. In order to make the prop, you will require paper, paint, crayons and precut babies. On a blank sheet of paper have your child design a blanket. Wrinkle the paper until it becomes soft like a blanket. Then give your child a precut infant to rock in the blanket. You can also use scrap material as your blanket instead of using paper. Head over to your local retail store and buy some straws, paper, and paint. You will be creating fun puff art that allows children to pretend like they are the Big Bad Wolf or other characters in the stories they read. Puff art is a inexpensive and easy way to let kids use their imagination and make a cool piece of art.
