Materials: prior to the party, type one not-so-easily-recognized word from as many nursery rhymes as you can think of (you can cheat and use the internet!) on one page and print several copies of the sheet out.

How to play: Give each guest a paper that has a list of not-so-easily-recognized words that are used in nursery rhymes. Here are some examples:

  • shout –  “John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt”
  • falling – “London Bridge is Falling Down”
  • dame – “Baa Baa Black Sheep”
  • jumped – “Hey Diddle Diddle”
  • struck – “Hickory Dickory Dock”
  • dried – “Itsy Bitsy Spider”
  • tumbling – “Jack and Jill”
  • lost – “Little Bo Peep”
  • corn – “Little Boy Blue”
  • pie – “Little Jack Horner”
  • whey – “Little Miss Muffet”
  • white – “Mary Had a Little Lamb”
  • cockle – “Mary Mary Quite Contrary”
  • soul – “Old King Cole”
  • bone – “Old Mother Hubbard”

Next to each word, write a nursery rhyme that contains that word. Set the timer for two to three minutes, and whoever guesses the most rhymes wins within that time wins!
