What are Some of Your Favorite Nursery Rhymes?

Send to Kindle

I’ve been trying to remember all of the nursery rhymes/kiddie songs I knew growing up. My 18mth old loves listening to them, especially the ones with hand movements. Any new or old ones would be cool!


There was a little girl that had a curl right in the middle of her forehead! and when she was good she was very good and when she was bad she was horrid!

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet eating her curds and whey when along came a spider that sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away!

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef, this little piggy had none! This little piggy was a bad little piggy and he went wee wee weee wee wee all the way home!

    But not suitable for an 18 month old.

    What are little boys made of?
    Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
    That’s what little boys are made of !"
    What are little girls made of?
    "Sugar and spice and all things nice
    That’s what little girls are made of!"

    Star Light Star bright,
    The first star I see tonight,
    I wish I may, I wish I might,
    Have the wish I wish tonight.

    Georgie Porgie

    Georgie Porgie pudding and pie,
    Kissed the girls and made them cry
    When the boys came out to play,
    Georgie Porgie ran away.

    For a list of nursery rhymes go to http://www-personal.umich.edu/~pfa/dreamhouse/nursery/rhymes.html

    It has them grouped by theme, which is pretty cool, you can get familiar with a few and perhaps learn some new ones!

    As a teacher, my favorite one is Little Bunny Foo Foo!

    Little Bunny Foo Foo

    hoppin’ through the forest,

    scoopin’ up the field mice

    and boppin’ em on the head.
    And down came the Blue Fairy, and she said:

    Little Bunny FooFoo

    I don’t want to see you

    scoopin’ up the field mice

    and boppin’ em on the head.
    And now I’ll give you three chances, and if you keep it up, I’ll turn you into a goon.

    Little Bunny Foo Foo

    kept hoppin’ through the forest,

    kept scoopin’ up the field mice

    and boppin’ em on the head.
    And down came the Blue Fairy, and she said:

    Little Bunny FooFoo

    I don’t want to see you

    scoopin’ up the field mice

    and boppin’ em on the head.
    And now I’ll give you two more chances, and if you do that again, I’ll turn you into a goon.

    Little Bunny Foo Foo

    kept hoppin’ through the forest,

    kept scoopin’ up the field mice

    and boppin’ em on the head.
    And down came the Blue Fairy, and she said:
