Autumn leaves are falling down…

Get your little ones up and moving with this harvest song sung to the tune of London Bridge.

Age group: 1 year +

What you need:

  • Gather clean dry leaves (you could use fabric leaves if you prefer) and bring them inside in a large space.
  • Give a few of the chilren  small brooms or plastic rakes

What to do:

  • If you have lots of children to participate in the activity, get them into a circle shape and they follow the cues for the activity. If you only have a few children, allow them to move freely around the room.
  •  Sing the following words to the tune of “London Bridge”

“Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down, Autumn leaves are falling down- welcome Autumn.

“Sweep the leaves and put them here ,put them here, put them here, Sweep the leaves and put them here- welcome Autumn.”

“Jump right in and have some fun, have some fun, have some fun, Jump right in and have some fun-welcome autumn.

 

Here is another to try:

Sing this to the tune of  “Row, Row  Row Your Boat”

 

“Leaves, leaves falling down, falling on the ground,

Red, yellow, orange, brown, falling on the ground.”
