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.
While Humpty Dumpty is drying, have your child build Humpty Dumpty a wall! My daughter chose her brother’s Lego’s over her Duplo’s, but you could use wooden blocks too.
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.
This is one of my kids favorite nursery rhymes. Especially with the second verse we added about the ribbon and glue.
Super cute, Maureen! I'm lovin' this series!
cute. My daughter has been asking to do humpty dumpty since we started but I was putting it on hold till later. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration.

Do you have a copy of these as the link is not working. I am after them to help a friend who has a foster child of 4 who has never heard nursery rhymes before. I want some sequence things for him to do. Thank you

I just looked to see if I could find an updated link and I didn’t find it.
