Thread Name: nursery rhymes-Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Our girls were raised on a wide range of reading material. Beatrix Potter was a huge favourite - Sarah knew "The Tale Of Jeremy Fisher" off by heart! "Thomas The Tank engine" was another big favourite.
As for songs, the old nursery rhymes and songs were always sung. We also had a piano with the lid wired open for them, an old guitar on the floor for them to pick up (and drop!) whenever they liked. We also made our own instruments from junk and would then sing and play together. Our house was - and still is - absolute bedlam!The girls play with us nowadays and we have great fun as a family band.Make the most of every moment and make music with your children - there's nothing quite so joyful!
