I have had nursery rhymes on my to do list since I first start Crafty Bee Creations. I kept putting them off because it was a struggle to make a craft that perfectly went with the rhyme and not also have a ton of pieces. I always TRY to keep the number of patterns a craft requires low so the projects are easy, but this set really tested me. I finally sat down and worked on the Nursery Rhyme Cut and Paste Set this week so today I’m ready to share them with you! I realize some of the crafts have more pieces than can be done in one sitting, so today I thought I’d also share with you some ways you can change each craft so they are easier for younger children. I’ll list above each craft the ways you can accommodate.
Skip the wall or use the wall but make sure to use the one I provide with the lines already drawn.Jack and Jill
Don’t add the cheeks or make the cheeks with a circle puncher so the kids have four less pieces to cut out.
Have girls make Jill and boy makes Jack.
Skip the pail and just do Jack and Jill.
Just have your kiddos make the spider.
Skip the cheeks.
Just make the spider and put it on the curds & whey/bowl pattern.
Make the head of Little Miss Muffet and have the spider sitting on top of her head.
Just make the mouse.
Skip Mary and just make the lamb.
Don’t use the cheeks on Mary and legs on the lamb, the lamb will then look like it’s laying on the ground.
Make the flower and the watering can.
Skip the cheeks. They are cute, but extra pieces!
Skip the moon portion.
Hope these tips help! You can get all 10 crafts as a bundle here.
