Rhymes
Sing any and all rhymes the kids would like to sing. At the end we sang the Hey Diddle Diddle rhyme as my craft was based on this rhyme.
Craft
I found this idea at this website -
http://www.staidenshomeschool.com/files/hey_diddle_instructions.pdf

I used die cuts for moon, cat, dog, cow, dish and sppon and glued it on construction paper in sequence. I told parents that craft was also teaching children order of events or sequencing. I precut construction paper so that there was a slit at the top for the cow to jump over the moon(it would be hard for the preschoolers to cut this). The kids and parents were really happy with this craft.
