I like to use the headbands we made on Monday to teach the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet. My daughter and son had a blast acting this one out!
All you need is a chair or pillow, bowl and spoon, and a spider headband:
Repeat the nursery rhyme:
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
And sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away!
And have your children act it out as you (and them) recite it! Repeat many times.
Here’s a link to another nursery rhyme: Itsy Bitsy Spider with corresponding activity.
