Roll-a-Rhyme

Rhymes are a fun way to play with sounds.  A Roll-a-Rhyme is a great game to help you remember to play with rhymes every day. Find or create pictures that represent a nursery rhyme or song. Glue them on an empty tissue box. Help baby roll the box like a die. Sing the nursery rhyme that matches the picture.
