We are getting back into the nursery rhyme groove after taking a week off. Our nursery rhyme of the week was Humpty Dumpty!
We’ve read Humpty Dumpty many times in our Nursery Rhyme book. I love to add sequence activities though to see if the girls can remember details. It’s also another opportunity to practice memorizing the rhyme.
We also created an easy Humpty Dumpty story prop craft. All you need is a wooden egg with a flat bottom (I found mine in the craft section at Meijer), 2 google eyes, glue, and a black Sharpie marker. Optional items: small pom pom and craft foam scrap piece for a hat.
Glue the eyes on to the egg. Then draw a face with the black marker. We decided our Humpty Dumpty needed a hat, so we fashioned one out of a piece of scrap foam and a pom pom.
I often find my little girls “reading” their nursery rhyme notebook around the house. They have most of them memorized already just by hearing them read so many times.
