Every one knows I’m A Little Teapot, it’s an old favourite – partly because children love playing with tea sets and also because they look so cute pretending to be a teapot with one arm in the air!
Sing the song and then have a pretend tea party with teddy bear and rag doll guests!
I’m A Little Teapot
I’m a little teapot short and stout,
Here’s my handle, here’s my spout!
When I see the tea cups, here me shout!
Lift me up, and pour me out!
This simple tune and short rhyming verse lends itself to be easily adapted for alternative verses – of which there are many! Here are a few we’ve come across, do share any more ideas below!
I’m a tube of toothpaste on the shelf,
I get so lonely all by myself!
When it comes to night time, then I shout
Take my top off and squeeze me out!
I’m a little robot, short and square,
I have no teeth, and I have no hair,
If you want the answers to a sum,
press my button and out it comes!
I’m a little snow man, short and fat,
Here’s my scarf and here’s my hat,
When the snow is falling, hear me say..
Build a snowman every day!

Our son liked doing “two handles” instead of a handle and a spout. So we made up this version:
I’m a little sugar bowl, short and white
I’ve got two handles, left and right.
Open up my lid and then you’ll see,
I’ve got sweetness all through me!
