Fun Poems for Kids

Here's a list of poems posted on this blog. Most of them have a Christian theme, although some of them are really just a bit of fun. They also vary in length from just four lines to, well, quite long. I hope that you (and your kids!) enjoy them.

The most recently added poems are shown at the top of the list.

Well, that's all the poems that are available here for now. I hope you enjoyed them!

While you're here, I'd really appreciate it if you would spare a moment or two to add a comment to let me know what you thought. I know time is precious, so no problem if you haven't got time, but even just a few words would be helpful and encouraging for me. For example, you could let me know:
  • Which ones you (or your kids) enjoyed the most (or least!)
  • Is there any specific topic that you would like to suggest for me to write a poem about.
  • And so on...
I look forward to hearing from you :)

Also, don't forget that you can email this page to a friend if you know someone who you think would enjoy them.

Thanks and God bless :)

Thanks for these, I haven't read them all just a few, like the feeding of the 5000. Please keep up the good work!. Cause these are great alternatives for the usual nusery rhymes which sometimes meaningless, or horrid! eg..when the wind blows th cradle will fall and down will come baby and all! GASSSPPP!

Thanks for the encouragement - I certainly do plan to continue to write more of them as and when I get the time. Glad you enjoyed them. I may also see if I can get round to putting some of them to music as well as is a bit more normal for nursery rhymes.

God bless,

These are great! What a blessing to find someone who is using their talent to glorify God! Keep it up. You should seriously think about getting these published if you haven't already. I,for one, would love to be able to buy a book of Christian poems for my child (and myself)!

Thanks - glad you like them :)

I have considered the possibility of getting them published, but haven't really followed up on it as yet - maybe one of these days!!

Mark H said...

Thanks - I do intend to keep on writing more when I get a chance. Actually, there's a few more that I haven't posted yet - I must get round to doing that soon...
