October Primary Singing Time Fall Leaves

Autumn is starting to show around us. We live up in the mountains and the red maples are turning, the aspens are yellow leafed, and then we have the evergreen trees everywhere and wildflowers on the hills. It is a perfect time to do something with changing leaves! 

Find some other fun Fall Songs and add them to leaves….

Get some construction paper and make up some red, yellow, orange, green and brown leaves. A great leaf pattern can be found  HERE at Enchanted Learning. Then put songs on the back and tape the songs all around your blackboard, counter and on the piano. Kids can come up and choose a leaf. If it has a song behind it sing that song. If not, then the child (or the child’s teacher) can pick a favorite song.  (You can also find silk colorful leaves at hobby shops right now, that might even be easier!)

Fall Primary Singing Time for October

Most of you have had your presentation by now. So the next few weeks can be doing some fun songs. 

We’ll have to go see the Witches at Gardner Village again this year. That’s a fun Fall outing. 

All these grandkids are a lot bigger now. But it’s fun to see how much they’ve grown by now! 

Another idea is singing the tune of “Oh What do You Do in the Summertime” on Page 245 of Children’s Songbook,  but change the words to these words, written by Kristy Brinkman 

Oh what do you do in the Autumn time
When all the world has changed?
Do you jump in some leaves,
Or swing in the breeze,
And watch all the birds go by?
Is that what you do?
So do I.

Oh what do you do in the Autumn time
When all the world has changed?
Do you sip hot cocoa,
And wish for some snow
As you watch all the clouds go by?
Is that what you do?
So do I.

Here’s another one….by me, Pattie Moss!  Sing to the tune of
 Once There Was a Snowman, Page 249  in the Children’s Songbook.

Once There Was a Leafman, leafman, leafman,
Once there was a leafman, blow, blow blow!
Swaying in the windstorm, windstorm, windstorm,
Swaying in the windstorm, FALL, FALL, FALL

(all fall down slowly till all on the floor) This would be good for the Jr. Primary. Older kids might like to do it but they may get silly with it.  😀

Fall is my FAVORITE SEASON! And HERE IS WHY!  Have a fantastic FALL!
