A rhyme time sack is a bag full of items that each relate to each nursery rhyme. For example a teddy for round and round the garden, a star for twinkle twinkle little star and a boat for row row row your boat.
A rhyme sack for children can be made cheaply and easily, with toys and objects found around the house and stored in a bag or box to keep altogether. Drawstring bags work particularly well as they can be pulled close at the end of the session and can double up as a ‘feely bag’ for young babies.
