Sharing nursery rhymes is a great way to help your child develop their language and communication skills. Even the youngest children will love listening to you sing nursery rhymes to them. The rhyming, repetion and silliness of nursery rhymes makes them appeal to children.
We have always loved singing nursery rhymes and base lots of our activities around them. Harry (aged 4) loves playing with words and making up silly rhymes and songs and Daisy (aged 15 months) loves the rhythm of nursery rhymes, often singing along in her own way.
This year we have teamed up with 5 other bloggers to share a selection of different nursery rhyme activities and crafts.

A different rhyme has been chosen for each day of the week:
