Here on Rainy Day Mum, we love our Nursery Rhymes. From Classic Baby Rhymes to counting songs to help us learn. One of our favourites is Incy Wincy Spider (or Itsy Bitsy Spider as it’s sung in the USA). Today we have a collection of our favourite Activities inspired by that nursery rhyme. So here we go Incy Wincy Spider Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers.
INCY WINCY SPIDER (ITSY BITSY SPIDER) LYRICS
Incy wincy spider climbed up the water spout,
down came the rain and washed the spider out,
out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain
and incy wincy spider climbed up the spout again!
