Top 10 Nursery Rhymes of all times

I love to listen to my playlist, but since last year these nursery rhymes have not only take over my playlist but also have become my favorites too(you see I don’t really have any other option).

Nursery rhymes provides so many benefits –

  • A great way to develop the ability to hear
  • language development
  • identifying objects & animals
  • counting
  • & the most important expands your babies imagination.

Since these are short & are easy to repeat they sometimes become the first word or sentence of your baby too.

Even the youngest baby will also connect easily and enjoy. So check out here my top favorite nursery rhymes which i am sure you will like too and leave you smiling (I am wondering those with no kids …..hope you remember them too!!!)

#10. Hickory dickory dock! 

Hickory Dickory dock,
The mouse ran up the clock,
The clock struck one
The mouse ran down,
Hickory Dickory dock.

#9. Humpty Dumpty 

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty
Together again.

#8.London bridge is falling down

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,

Iron bars, iron bars.
Build it up with iron bars,
My fair lady!

#7. Baa, baa, black sheep

Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for my master,
One for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Come again other day

Rain, rain, go away

#4. Incey Wincey Spider

The incey wincey spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the incey wincey spider
Climbed up the spout again

#3. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!

#2. Ring around the rosie. 

Ring-a-ring o’ roses,
A pocket full of posies,

#1. Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

It doesnt end here thier is more to it …. yes!!! it really is here it goes

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.

Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He could not see where to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

Thank God! Who would have learnt the whole poem!! Pheww!!

Well there are lot of other rhymes which are fun to hear like

  • Down By The Bay 
  • 1,2,3,4,5 once i caught a fish alive
