A Singing Sack!

The nursery rhyme sack has had lots of use this week.  The older children are so used to using it now that they organise the toddlers with floor mats to sit on and then lead the singing session, making sure that the bag is passed around and every child gets a turn to choose something!

In the bag there is:
  • A pig (this little pig went to market)
  • A number 7 (7 men went to St Ives)
  • A teddy (round and round the garden)
  • A cow (Hey diddle diddle)
  • A boat (row row)
  • A fish (one, two, three, four five)
  • A green bottle (ten green bottles)
  • An egg (humpty dumpty)
  • A cotton reel (wind the bobbin up)
  • A duck (five little ducks)
  • A star (twinkle twinkle)
  • A mouse (hickory dickory dock)
  • A sheep (baa baa black sheep)
  • A shell (Mary Mary quite contrary)
  • A spider (incy wincy)


  1. What a great idea! I hope you don't mind if I "borrow" it?


  2. Hi Cynthia, of course I don't mind if you use the idea.... It is always an honour if ideas are deemed good enough to export!

    Have fun! Jenni
