Nursery Rhyme Party Decoration Ideas
Head to the local toy store and find some stuffed animals, dolls and the like that could represent a specific nursery rhyme. For instance, a sheep for Little Boy Blue, a king for Sing a Song of Six Pence, a lamb and doll for Mary Had a Little Lamb, etc. Print out the rhyme onto a small piece of card stock, punch a hole in the top of the card stock tag, and string it to the stuffed animal/doll. Place these items in the center of the table on top of a few complimentary colored receiving blankets for a festive table decoration. After the party, this table decoration can be a great gift for the birthday boy or girl!
Nursery Rhyme Imagery Around the House
Check out an assortment of nursery rhyme books at the library. Go to the local copy shop and make color copies of the best images from the books. Enlarge the images if needed. Pick up inexpensive frames at Ikea, Target or a local drugstore, and cut and place the images within the frames. As an alternative to frames, the photocopies could be cut and pasted onto different pastel card stock. Holes could be punched in the top corners and ribbon strung through. These hanging images or the framed images can be scattered through out the areas where the party will be held (kitchen, front foyer table, buffet table, etc.)
Music and Ambiance
Check out an assortment of nursery rhyme CD’s at the library, or purchase a few on Amazon to add music to your party. Perhaps create a playlist and mix in some classical music as well as your child’s favorite songs.
