Nursery Rhyme Quiz Part 1 ....


Fancy a bit of fun?

Try your hand at working out what Nursery Rhymes the following initials stand for. You can get the kids and grandkids to help you.

Example: B.B.B.S.H.Y.A.W. - Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You Any Wool - get the gist?

Email (through my profile) your answers to me in the next week, then next week I'll post the answers and the winner(s).


All those who get any right can claim this badge for their blog.

Congrats on the 200th! I'm not touching that test with a 10 foot pole...

Annelisa said...

Wow, 200? That's fantastic! I have no idea how many posts I've done, but I reckon they're quite spread apart (big gaps), so probably not as many as that!

Just popping in quickly to say hello... still doing my wardrobe, and there's only a few hours before the kids' return (help! All the stuff that was where I'm building the cupboard is on their beds!!! Yikes, what am I doing sitting here???)

I only got two of your nursery rhymes straight off, but I might have a go later... I always like a bit of a puzzle.

Just a few more days of holiday, eh? Enjoy it!! (I'll answer your email later...bit tight on time just now) See you soon XX

laurie said...

CONGRATS on 200 POSTS!! Isn't it amazing how they just pile up as we go along?! That's a huge number of visitors, it says how much folks are enjoying your blog! :-)

Oh dear, I have to try to remember nursery rhymes? Most days I can barely remember my name! I see a couple I know. Does anyone read nursery rhymes to kids anymore? or have tv characters taken their place?

Have a wonderful weekend away Akelamalu - you deserve it!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks buffalodickdy, go on have a go! Round some kids up to help. :)

Ring them up if you get stuck Ruth :)

The posts certainly do mount up Josie I couldn't believe it myself! Hope you have a go at the quiz I'm sure you'll remember them.
