Nursery Rhymes


Write down parts of old nursery rhymes or children's songs and see how many your guests can remember the ending to.

Some examples:

Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry;
When the boys came out to play
Georgie Porgie ran away.

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Old Mother Hubbard
went to the cupboard
to get her poor dog a bone,
when she got there
the cupboard was bare
and so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's
to buy him some bread
but when she came back
the poor dog was dead.

She went to the joiner's
to buy him a coffin
but when she came back
the poor dog was laughing.

She went to the hatter's
to buy him a hat
but when she came back
he was feeding the cat.

She went to the barber's
to buy him a wig
but when she came back
he was dancing a jig.

She went to the fruiter's
to buy him some fruit
but when she came back
he was playing the flute.

One, two,
Buckle my shoe;

Three, four,
Knock at the door;

Five, six.
Pick up sticks;

Seven, eight,
Lay them straight;

Nine, ten,
A big fat hen;

Eleven, twelve,
Dig and delve;

Thirteen, fourteen,
Maids a-courting;

Fifteen, sixteen,
Maids in the kitchen;

Seventeen, eighteen,
Maids in waiting;

Nineteen, twenty,
My plates empty;
