Children’s nursery rhymes and games
Finger games and nursery rhymes, much more than a game
Our grandmothers knew that games with fingers were very important for introducing children to the world. In fact, they not only entertain the child, but also train the child ability of expression and intelligence. The movement of the fingers is in fact closely related to the word.
The areas of the brain responsible for the movement of the fingers and the tongue are close to each other and influence each other. It is said that if parents regularly play with their child’s fingers and wrist, they will be able to accelerate the maturation of the speech center by about two months. Intelligence will also develop better if the child can not only watch, but also experience movement directly. Furthermore, there is nothing more pleasant and fun than seeing the little hands trying to grasp the world.

Short nursery rhyme
Short short nursery rhyme
you found the door closed,
to eat soup
you came in through the window,
but there was no more soup
and fasting you are left!
Instructions for Use: while you are reciting the nursery rhyme, walk with your fingers from the wrist to your baby’s neck. At the end of the movement give it a pat on the nose. And if you tickle him all over his body, he’ll laugh out loud.
This is the beautiful eye
This is the beautiful eye
This is his brother
this is the little church
this is the bell!
Instructions for Use: at the first verse points to an eye. The second indicates the other. On the third, touch his mouth, and on the last touch his nose saying drin drin drin drin drin!
This game will make the child become aware of his own body. And it’s fun for parents too.
Nursery rhyme of the fingers
The thumb says: I’m hungry!
The index says: There is no more bread!
Middle says: We will buy it!
The ring finger says: There’s still a little bit left!
The little finger says: Give it to me who am the smallest!
Instructions for Use: while you recite this rhyme, touch one finger at a time on the child’s hand. Before reaching the little finger, take a short pause to increase the tension. The little one realizes that it is the last verse also from the tone of voice, and in general he begins to giggle before the end for the tension and contentment, as he learns the sequence of sentences very quickly.
The head is blonde!
The head is blonde
The cheek is ruddy
the smiling mouth
The look is innocent
Drin drin drin drin drin!
Instructions for use: In this game, caress it all over your face: run your hand over his head, gently take his cheeks, brush his lips and gently touch his nose. You can do the same with your chin as well. Variant: Guide the child’s hand, so that he can touch parts of his own face by himself. In this way he will learn by playing the difference between contact with his own fingers and that with yours.
Beautiful and white butterfly
flies flies and never gets tired,
turn this way,
and on a flower you go to rest.
Instructions for Use: before you can follow the lines of the baby’s hand, then tap the center of the hand or gently squeeze the individual fingers. Not only will it tickle him pleasantly, but he will also become aware of the size and shape of his own little hand. The game works particularly well if there is darkness in the room and the child can therefore focus on the sensations of his own body.
