Humpty Dumpty

English
Traditional

 

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

 

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

 

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,

 

Couldn’t put Humpty together again!

 

Sit your baby on your knee facing you. Bounce them gently and for the great fall, gently tip your baby backwards. Just make sure you support their head and neck. 

Put a teddy or Humpty Dumpty Puppet on Lycra or a piece of fabric like a pillowcase, and gently bounce him up and down. You can also throw Humpty in the air so he falls down onto the Lycra.

Stand up and clap hands to the first half of the rhyme. When it’s time to fall, touch the floor. Then jump up and march on the spot. You could do this round in a circle too.
