One of the best ways babies can be introduced to wildlife is through nursery rhymes. These simple little songs are an easy way to create an affiliation between your child and the natural world. And they don’t just encourage a familiarity with wildlife – they’re great for literacy and communication skills as well! Many children still love to hear these little ditties well into their early school years.
Here are a few of my favourite wildlife-related nursery rhymes in a printable format.
Kate from Picklebums has adorable hand puppet printables, perfect for two important rhymes I’ve missed on the Wildlife Rhyme sheet. Check out her five little ducks and five green frogs printable. Why not take a look around her website too; there’s plenty of other great content to look at.
