Nursery Rhymes

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.

 Baa Baa Black Sheep

Skip the 3 bags and ribbons.

Humpty Dumpty

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.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Just have your kiddos make the spider.

Do the spider and the spout/rain drops.

Little Miss Muffet

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.

Hickory Dickory Dock

Just make the mouse.

Just make the clock.

Mary Had a Little Lamb

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.

Just make the lamb’s head and Mary’s head.

Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

Make the flower and the watering can.

Skip the cheeks.  They are cute, but extra pieces!

Just make Mary’s head and hat.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Make the star portion, skip the cloud and moon.

Hey Diddle Diddle

Skip the moon portion.

Just make the cow’s head and the moon.

Hope these tips help!  You can get all 10 crafts as a bundle here.
