21 Nursery Rhymes Trivia Questions To Prove You’re A Mother Goose

Do you remember your preschool and kindergarten days, playing clapping games and singing songs with your friends? Maybe you clapped merrily along to “Pat-A-Cake,” or tried to trip each other up with the “Peter Piper” tongue twister. And who can forget playing “London Bridge is Falling Down” on the playground and trying not to get caught when the “bridge” fell down?

Now’s the time to bring out your inner preschooler and test your nursery rhymes trivia knowledge. See if you can name who kissed the girls and made them cry or who ran away with the spoon. So invite a child to take the quiz with you and sing along to each question. It’s more fun that way, we promise! Hint: you should brush up on your Barney and Friends episodes before trying this set of nursery rhymes trivia questions and answers.
