We’ve gone a little autumn leaf mad! If you’d like to join us in celebrating Autumn (or fall) with a song, download our free printable autumn leaf puppets.
I thought I knew all the best preschool songs, but one autumn my kids cam home singing an autumn leaf song I didn’t know! Over the years all vour of my kids learned the same song at our lovely local kinder (preschool) and they have all loved it so much that they sang it over and over and over until I learned it too!
The Five Golden Autumn Leaves song is now a favourite, so I made some printable autumn leaf puppets to go with it!
Five Gold Autumn Leaves Song
Do you know the Five Golden Autumn Leaves song? You can sing it with the word ‘autumn’ or ‘fall’ whichever you prefer.
Here are the words, and the actions to go with it.
Five Gold Autumn Leaves.
Five golden autumn leaves,
High up in a tree.
(hold your leaves up high)
The wind blows…
(blow on your leaves)
The leaves shake…
(shake your leaves)
And one falls down to me.
(make one leaf fall down)
Falling to the ground
(repeat until all the leaves have fallen)
We’ve shared a quick family video of my (then) preschooler and I singing the song and using the puppets to help you learn the song (the words are included in the printable). Excuse the bad video and 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!
Make the Autumn Leaf Puppets
- free printable (download below)
- printer paper
- Laminator or self adhesive paper optional
Start by printing and cutting around each leaf, you can laminate the leaves or cover them in self adhesive contact paper if you like to help them last longer. Then cut out the ‘finger straps’ and make a loop with each one, big enough to slide your finger into. Tape the looped finger straps to the back of each leaf. Put the loops towards the bottom of each leaf so it sits nicely on your finger.
This printable is an A4 sized pdf file, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open it. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
