I Love You Rituals has a lot of sweet re-written nursery rhymes! One of my 3 year old’s favorites:

A wonderful woman lived in a shoe
she had so many children
and knew exactly what to do
she held them
and rocked them
and tucked them in bed
“I love you, I love you”
is what she said

You can do a fingerplay with them – have your child sit in your lap and take her hands and massage them palm up. Then motion “sooo many children” with their hands spreading out. Touch each finger in one hand as you say ” she knew exactly what to do.” Tuck your child’s fingers in and cradle their hands to “she held them” and then rock/swing them for “she rocked them.” Fold their arms into their chest and wrap them up in your arms – “and tucked them in bed.” :)
