Little Miss Muffet Craft for Kids

Nursery Rhyme activities such as My Little Miss Muffet craft are a great way to help kids learn a rhyme off by heart! 

Little Miss Muffet Nursery Rhyme Craft

My son has just started school and he is learning lots of nursery rhymes. He is very good at learning them off by heart and picking out what words rhyme.

I do think the easy crafts they do in class reinforce the nursery rhyme. One of his favorites is Little Miss Muffet.

He asked so many questions about tuffets and got to taste curds and whey, which he was not a fan! 

His class did some sequencing tasks and were able to sort 4 pictures into the correct order. One thing they did not do was my Little Miss Muffet and spider craft. Maybe I should have sent the link to his teacher 😉

Of course my easy spider crafts can be made for use when saying this nursery rhyme and also Incy Wincy Spider. 

My step by step Nursery rhyme craft tutorial will help you recreate the Little Miss Muffet rhyme, complete with moving spider. The only difference being Little Miss Muffet is not real in this craft so she cannot run away from the spider. This is an easy paper plate craft for kids!
