This is a rhyming activity for toddlers. Introducing toddlers to rhymes helps with their reading development as they get older.


A-hunting we will go
A-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a snail and put him in a pail
And never let him go

These are the recurring lyrics that can be replaced with four other combinations such as:

dragon / wagon
fox / box
whale / scale


bee / tree
duck / truck
fish / dish
