Nursery rhymes are a staple during the preschool and early elementary years. Whether you are a teacher or a parent of a nursery rhyme fan, themed snacks offer an extension activity for the classic childhood rhymes. Making snacks with kids helps them learn about measurements and cooking while tying in the nursery rhyme themes.

The Muffin Man nursery rhyme offers an obvious snack connection to make with kids. Kids of all ages can easily make muffins with adult supervision. Even preschool kids can handle the task of pouring and mixing the ingredients. Muffin mixes in the baking aisle of grocery stores make the snack even easier. You also can make the muffins from scratch. Try different muffin flavours to give the kids variety and get them to try something new.
The Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme is another obvious connection with snacks. Hard boiled eggs are ideal to connect to the rhyme. The snack also can turn into a bit of a science lesson. Crack a raw egg to show the kids the insides. Ask them to predict what will happen when the eggs are boiled. They get to see the results once the eggs are done cooking. Re-enact Humpty Dumpty allowing the kids to drop the hard boiled eggs onto the counter to crack them. Help the kids continue peeling the eggs before enjoying them as a snack.
Little Boy Blue
Make edible haystacks to go along with the Little Boy Blue nursery rhyme. You'll need chow mein noodles and butterscotch chips to make the haystacks. Melt the butterscotch chips according to the package directions. Stir in the chow mein noodles so they are covered with the melted butterscotch chips. Scoop out small piles of the noodles on a piece of waxed paper to form the haystacks. Let them harden before eating.
Old Mother Hubbard
Old Mother Hubbard didn't find a bone for her dog, but the kids will enjoy a bone for snack time. Use a bone-shaped cookie cutter to make bone-shaped sugar cookies for snack time. Give each child a scoop of vanilla icing to spread over the cookies. Another option is to use bread dough to make homemade soft pretzels shaped like a dog bone. Bake the shaped bone according to the package directions.
