Redo Nursery Rhymes
You could call it a lesson in the English language, but why ruin the mystique? Create a list of words that rhyme. Then plug them into new versions of "Hush Little Baby." Child example: Hush, little brother / Here is a block / Don't you touch my Legos / Or I'll make you eat Dad's sock. Mom example: Who invented bake sales? / What an unfair plan / We need cookies for 100 / But only have one pan.
