Nursery Rhymes about Household Items are a great way to improve your baby or young child’s vocabulary.

When your child is really little, introducing new words and sounds through music is a great way to get them using their tongues and mouths to make noises. This in time will help them learn to talk and sound words out properly.

For slightly older toddlers Nursery Rhymes about Household Items are a great way to help them explore the world around them. Time and time again I am finding myself drawing my kids attention to the things around them in an attempt to:

  • make them more appreciative of their surroundings,
  • help them find joy in the little things,
  • be creative about making their own fun.


Here are three Nursery Rhymes about Household Items. Two are old classics that I can remember singing when I was younger and one I was introduced to when my song was very little. 

Hickory Dickory Dock




I’m a little tea pot

This is an absolute classic. I can remember singing this song and doing the dance as a little girl. 


I'm a little tea pot - action songs for kids


Wind the Bobbin Up


This is more a song than one of the Nursey Rhymes about Household Items. Come to think of it probably not a lot of people have bobbins lying around their houses but this is a great action song and most kids love it.


I had not heard of this song until I took my eldest to a playgroup as a toddler. That was years ago and he still loves singing this song.

Why is it here 

The whole reason behind incorporating Nursery Rhymes on the site is to help you find new ones or remind you about old ones you may have forgotten you knew. So often as parents we land up repeating the same songs and rhymes to our children, to the point that we can’t think of a single new one. This section is dedicated to you not losing your mind. 

Use this resource

Each of  the Nursery Rhymes, these Nursery Rhymes about Household Items and the others are all in photograph form and with realistic images. This is done intentionally so that you can save them to your phone so that you have them at hand. 

You can show the kids the photos so they can associate the words with relevant images and so that they begin to remember their favourites based on the visual and not just the audio.
