Why Nursery Rhymes?
From boosting your child’s hearing awareness to boosting the development of his brain, nursery rhymes do a lot. That’s exactly why they are included as a part of a growing child’s curriculum. Plus, nursery rhymes can also be an excellent conversation opener for children, especially with people they aren’t that familiar with.
Sitting down with your child and reciting his favorite rhymes together, enacting the scenes can be a priceless bonding experience.
Mary Had A Little Lamb Lyrics
Mary Had a little lamb, it’s fleece was white as snow, yeah.
Everywhere the child went the lamb, the lamb was sure to go yeah.
He followed her to school one day and broke the teacher’s rules.
And what a time did they have that day at school.

They could be anything at all- a coloring activity, a word search or even a puzzle. You could also look up a YouTube video about lambs (and other animals) and make the best use of your little one’s screen time, explaining him about the animal.
How To Draw A Lamb
Another cool trick is to learn how to draw lamb, or if your toddler is old enough, color within its lines, or stick it on a white paper- you get the drill. Recall your little one’s favorite art and craft activities, and do them again, only this time, theme them around your little one’s favorite rhyme- in this case, Mary Had a Little Lamb.
You’ll find tons of inspiration for activities online- everything from finger painting to counting and color identification activities, and most of them are super easy and age appropriate too.
