Wriggle and Rhyme

Wriggle and Rhyme is a fun and interactive session for babies, toddlers and their parents or carers. Loads of noisy fun and instruments to shake and rattle.

Wriggle and Rhyme sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers under 2 with their parents and carers (but all children are welcome). The session is based on sharing nursery rhymes, action songs, musical instruments and board books. It is fun, interactive and noisy!

Nursery rhymes are great for language development. Sign up for free library membership for your baby and share and enjoy stories at home.
