Collect pictures to go with your child's favorite songs and nursery rhymes, like a drawing of a teapot for "I'm a little teapot". Glue or tape these pictures to index cards. Let your child pick a card, and do the rhyme together. You could pick one rhyme for the whole day, or pick as many different cards as your child wants!
