We’ve gone a little autumn leaf mad this week, so please excuse us if you are on the other side of the world, or live somewhere where there aren’t many leaves changing!
After threading with leaves earlier in the week, the kids reminded me of a favourite song they have all learned at kinder (preschool). I didn’t know this song before my girls attended the local kinder but they loved it so much that they sang it over and over and I soon learned it. My big boy was excited to come home and tell us that they sang the very same song at ‘His Kinder’ (which happens to be the same kinder with the same teacher!).
It’s now a family favourite… so I thought we had better make some printable leaves to go with it!
We also made a quick little video to help you learn the song (the words and on the printable). Excuse my terrible singing, but as I’ve said over and over, your kids don’t care how bad your singing is, as long as you sing… so I am hoping the internets won’t care too much either!
To make the leaves, simply download the pdf document, print it, and cut out the leaves and the little tabs of paper to make the ‘finger straps’. Loop the finger straps and secure onto the back of the leaves with tape and you are good to go.
Do you know any more autumn songs?
What is your favourite song to sing with your kids?
Can you suggest any more sing puppets we could create and share?
