The Humpty Dumpty Lyrics and More

There are differing views on who “Humpty Dumpty” actually represents, but he is depicted as an egg in fairy tales. We first see him as an egg in the novel “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll in 1872.

The lyrics for the famous poem go like this…

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Humpty Craft Option 2

Manipulating the paper bag can be a little bit challenging. You can choose to assist with these steps, or you can go a slightly simpler route by using the egg template instead. It’s included with your Humpty Dumpty craft templates. Anywhere in the instructions where the paper bag is used, replace it with the flat cut out egg that you can cut using the template.
