As a parent, you have doubtlessly repeated the same nursery rhymes over and over again. Children love the singsong nature of the rhymes and delight in the retelling of them each time. Next time your child wants to hear a nursery rhyme, consider making a craft out of it as well. With simple craft supplies, you can create easy and fun crafts your child will love.

Humpty Dumpty

Create an egg puzzle for your child to break and put back together again. Simply cut a large egg shape out of a piece of white construction paper. Allow your child to decorate the egg with art supplies such as stickers, markers, or glitter. Once all the supplies have dried, use scissors to cut the egg into randomly shaped pieces. Then allow your child to put them together again.

Lady Bird, Lady Bug Fly Away Home

A very simple lady bird craft is a ladybug crown. Cut four-inch wide lengths of red construction paper. Use enough strips so that when laid end to end, they will wrap around your child's head. Tape the strips together to form a crown. Allow your child to wrap pipe cleaners around pencils to create the antenna. Then tape hearts cut out of black construction paper to the top of the pipe cleaners. Tape the bottom of the pipe cleaners to the inside of the crown on the sides. Allow your child to cut out ladybug spots from construction paper and glue them to the outside of the crown to finish it.

Star Light, Star Bright

You can create your own little universe in a jar that your child can enjoy. Cut five or six one-inch pieces of tin foil and allow your child to ball them up. Place the balled up pieces into a clean baby food jar. Also add some star-shaped metal confetti. Fill the jar with water and a few drops of blue food colouring. Tightly replace the lid and allow your child to shake the jar to watch the stars float about.

Little Miss Muffet

Create the scary spider from this nursery rhyme by having your child draw a spider web in the corner of a piece of white paper using black markers. Press your child's thumb onto a black stamp ink pad. Press his thumb onto the paper somewhere below the spider web. Then have your child draw the eight legs and eyes on the spider. Finish it by drawing a line to connect the spider to its web.
