Colored scarves (affiliate link) add an exciting element to these songs. If you don’t have any on hand, handkerchiefs can be a good substitution.
These songs are wonderful individually, or all together. Follow the links to learn the songs and movements.
Try to turn off the videos once you’ve been through each song once or twice so you and your kids can get lost in the magic of music and dance.
Four Fall Songs For Kids
- Wind, Oh, Wind is a simple wind song. Watching the scarves flow to the ground is great fun!
- Peek-a-Boo. While this song isn’t technically a Fall song, it is always a hit and works well between other scarf songs.
- Leaves are Falling. This song to the familiar tune of “London Bridge” addresses falling leaves. Try it outside with leaves instead of scarves!
- Autumn from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Turn on this song and dance freely with the scarves. For something different, dance with leaves tied to pieces of string. The song is quite long so fade out before your kids lose interest.
When I use these songs during circle time, I like to end with a repeat of Wind, Oh, Wind before putting the scarves away.
