Little Bo Peep's sheep - the children made a handprint on a small paper plate with black paint and added cotton batting to the lamb when it was dry.
Little Boy Blue horns - I cut a paper towel tube in half and the children covered them with yellow paper then I snipped one end and they covered that with more yellow paper. We added a pipe cleaner handle.
Hickory Dickory Dock clocks - The children added a clock face to a construction paper clock shape then mice were attached to the clock with wool. They were able to move the mouse up and down the clock while reciting the rhyme. The clock for the older children had moveable hands so we were able to review hour and half hour times.
Jack Be Nimble candlesticks - I cut a paper towel tube in half and the children coloured a piece of paper with wax crayons then covered the tube with their paper. I had precut the sections from a take out drink container for the candle to stand in. We used a hot glue gun so they could use their candles right away, but white glue would work just as well; it would just need about a day drying time. The children then added a crepe paper (tissue paper would have worked better, but I didn't have yellow and orange so we improvised) flame. We used the candlesticks to act out the rhyme.
I created fill in the blank nursery pages for the older children. When they completed all the worksheets, we stapled them into a book.
