We love Rhyme Time at our local library. I’m not sure how common Rhyme Time is, but I have seen libraries from all over the UK that host similar events. Its a good, free and fun activity that our little one enjoys, and is helping start an enjoyment of music and singing that I hope he carries with him for the rest of his life. To spread the fun out over the week, I’ve found a few of our favourite Rhyme Time songs on YouTube, so any time can be Rhyme Time!
Wind the bobbin up
Row row row the boat
Incy wincy spider
And, a bonus version in Spanish, for no reason other than it sounds beautiful
A big red bus
Twinkle twinkle little star
Listening to the videos on your TV
If your TV can’t play YouTube videos directly, then have a think about getting a Google Chromecast, it makes it possible to play YouTube videos on your TV via your phone or tablet. It also works with iPlayer, so brilliant for accessing a lot of great content quickly, cheaply and easily!
If you have any other favourite rhymes or songs, please share in the comments!
