This craft/activity was done some time ago for my 18-month-old when he was still babbling, and I would guess most of his words. It was getting frustrating for him when I would not understand the poem he wanted me to sing along. So we came up with these singing craft sticks.
Writing the poem on each and making a small picture to match made us both happy. We both understood each other. He relates to the picture and me to words.


  • wide craft sticks Dozen
  • permanent markers Couple of different colors
  • 1 small plastic cup or container Few as per your like


  1. Write the name of each song or rhyme on the appropriate stick.
    Draw a picture which relates to the song. (If your kid is old enough let him draw and you can write on the back of the stick.
  2. This sparks creativity and ownership)
    Place all the sticks in a plastic cup or container.
  3. Tip: These sticks serve as great storytelling tools. (of course spontaneous). Enjoy and write as much you like what rhymes/songs are yours and your little one's fav.
