Jack and Jill song lyrics

Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water; Jack fell down and broke his crown And Jill came tumbling after.

Then up got Jack and said to Jill, As in his arms he took her, “Brush off that dirt for you’re not hurt, Let’s fetch that pail of water.”

So Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch the pail of water, And took it home to Mother dear, Who thanked her son and daughter.

What can your child learn from it?

Navigating the hills with Jack and Jill helps children learn more than just the story. They’re boosting their memory skills, understanding of sequencing, and of course, their rhyming skills! Plus, it’s a great opener to discuss safety and why we must be careful during our adventures.

Learning and exploring, all in one—what’s not to love?

Don’t just stop at the story — create your own hill with pillows and blankets! Climb it together while singing the song. Or, how about a water-fetching relay race? Team up, grab some cups, and may the best water-fetcher win!

It’s a great song to practice your kid’s English pronunciation.

So let’s lace up our imaginary hiking boots and hit the trail! Who knew that an old tale could pave the way for so much fun and learning?
