April is National Grilled Cheese Month! Why not invite a few of your favorite nursery rhyme characters to storytime to celebrate? Kids will love these silly variations on classic Mother Goose rhymes. Encourage creativity and writing skills by working with children to come up with their own crazy grilled cheese sandwich rhymes!
Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet,
eating a yummy grilled cheese.
Along came a spider
And sat down beside her
And said, “Could I have some, please?”
Old Mother Hubbard
went to the cupboard
to fetch her poor dog a grilled cheese.
He gobbled it up,
that hungry pup,
and shared the crumbs with the fleas!
Old King Cole
Was a hungry old soul,
And a hungry old soul was he.
He called for his bread,
And he called for his cheese,
And he called for his cooks three.
Each cook, he had a fine pan,
And a very fine pan had he;
Hiss-hiss, went the grilled cheese,
Hiss, went the grilled cheese,
Hiss, went the sandwiches three.
Oh, there’s none so rare,
As can compare
With old King Cole and his grilled cheeses three!
