  • Recite the poem.

Wee Willie Winkie,
Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs
In his nightgown.
Rapping at the windows,
Crying at the locks,
"Are the children in their beds?
For now it's eight o'clock."

  • Act out the poem. Run around and gently rap at the windows.
  • Say the last two lines in a loud voice.
  • Lie down and pretend to be sleeping.
  • Practice this rhyme with your two-year-old and try to get him to say the last line with you. He will particularly enjoy lying down and pretending to sleep.
