Autumn Leaves are Falling Down

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down,
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Red, yellow, orange, and brown!

The children were introduced to new art activity to go along with this short song.  They have enjoyed this particular variation in their choices of art activities.  I showed the lesson to the children at circle time and then set it up at a table as a stationary art lesson:

Pencil for name writing; white paper; tray with orange, brown, red, and yellow paint; each color has a 'leaf' stamp which is simply the cardboard tube from a toilet paper roll! 

We love to reuse things! :-)

The result is quite seasonal and the children are loving the process.


  1. We love hearing Brian sing the songs and recite the poems and rhymes he is learning at school! This blog is a treasure!

    1. So good the hear, Sarah Joy! And I'm happy you are finding value in the resource of this blog - thank you!

  2. I am so totally doing these next week! Thank you.

    1. Perfect - I'm glad this post is timely for you! Happy Fall!
