Rhymes about Autumn Leaves

Pretty Leaves
Pretty leaves they are falling
Falling down to the ground
When the wind blows his trumpet
See them dancing around
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la
Pretty leaves they are falling
Falling down to the ground
When the wind blows his trumpet
See them sitting back down.

5 Little Leaves
Five little leaves so bright and gay
Were dancing about on a tree one day
The wind came blowing through the town
And one little leaf came tumbling down.

Four little leaves so bright and gay… etc.

Three little leaves so bright and gay… etc.

Two little leaves so bright and gay… etc.

One little leaf so bright and gay
Was dancing about on a tree one day
The wind came blowing through the town
And the last little leaf came tumbling down.

Autumn Leaves Theme Crafts

 

  • Leaf Frame- Fold wax paper in 1/2, wax sides together. Slip leaf between the fold and iron – the wax will melt onto the leaf, preserving it. Once preserved, glue the leaves onto a piece of fabric or paper. Make a frame from twigs collected in the woods and twine. Hang your fall masterpiece.
  • Leaf Mobile – Have children cut out leaf shapes from fall colored construction paper. Make an X with sticks and tie together in the center using a pipe-cleaner. Twist the pipe cleaner into a hook for hanging. Attach string from the sticks and punch holes in the leaves. Tie to the string and hang.

Autumn Leaves Science

  • Leaf prints – Paint real leaves and then press them on paper for a print.
  • Paint with leaf brushes – Collect leaves and tape to a small stick then use these instead of brushes for painting.
  • Fingerpaint with fall colors.
  • Handprint trees – Use a large sheet of paper and draw a tree trunk with marker or cut one out of construction paper then have the children dip their hands in fall colors and add the leaves to the tree.
