Fall Songs and Games

This week we began our fall activities at daycare. Each season we try to have special songs to sing and games to play. Here are some of our favorites we do each fall:

Songs:

10 Little Apples 

10 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
9 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
8 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
7 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
6 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
5 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
4 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
3 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
2 little apples hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked one down
now there's
1 little apple hanging in the tree
the farmer came along and plucked it down
now there's no more little apples hanging in the tree

(kids love it instead of saying farmer, say the name of someone they know or kids in class. Ex: Elizabeth came along and plucked one down)

(sang to the tune of London Bridge)
Tree leaves are falling down falling down falling down
Tree leaves are falling down
In the fall

Games:

  • Apple Toss: Using a bags set, set the bags aside and use apples inside! Be careful not to toss them too hard (difficult for younger kiddos). Playing on carpet or grass is recommended.
  • Pumpkin Bowling: Use toilet paper rolls as pins and mini pumpkins as the bowling balls. Playing on carpet or grass is strongly recommended, as is playing with mini pumpkins and no larger pumpkins (they will crack open easier than the mini pumpkins).
