Fall Fun Songs-Squirrels, Leaves, Apples and Turkeys

Tissue Paper activities and songs

PICK A LITTLE APPLE (roll a sheet of tissue paper into a ball and pretend it is the apple)

(no tune)

Pick a little apple. Pick a little apple. Pick a little apple for me to eat (pretend picking from the tree)

Take a little bite. Take a little bite. Take a little bite. Mmmm, that’s sweet (rub tummy)

Eat the little bite; eat the little bite; eat a little bite and say this song (present chewing)

Where’s the little apple? Where’s the little apple? Where’s the little apple? It’s all gone (hide behind back)

So…..pick another apple. Pick another apple. Pick another apple for me to eat!

Turkey Flying (use one sheet of tissue paper)

(tune: London Bridge)

Turkey flying up and down. Up and down. Up and down. Turkey flying up and down.

Catch him if you can. (toss the tissue paper up and catch)

Little Brown Leaf (tear a small piece of tissue paper and pretend it is a leaf)

(If you’re happy and you know it)

There’s a little brown leaf on my head, OH NO! (put leaf on head)

There’s a little brown leaf on my head, OH NO!

There’s a little brown leaf, there’s a little brown leaf, there’s a little brown leaf on my head, OH NO! (repeat changing color to match your paper and placing on other parts of the body)

5 Little Apples (make 5 balls of tissue paper to play)

Tune: Ba Ba Black Sheep

5 little apples hanging on a tree. One fell off and hit my knee (drop one)

4 little apples hang on tight. One fell down and he rolled right (roll a ball)

3 little apples all fall down. 1-2-3 they hit the ground. (drop one ball at a time)

Hey, Little squirrel (make small balls of tissue paper to use as nuts)

Tune: Little cabin in the woods

Hey little squirrel in the tree.

Can you find a nut for me?

Climb right down here to the ground

Bring the nut that you have found.

Hold the nut in little hands

Don’t let them fall down in the sand

Come and share your nuts with me

Eat them underneath the tree

Pumpkins rolling on the floor, on the floor, on the floor,

Pumpkins rolling on the floor, can you do that once more!

Little Pumpkin (Tune: Twinkle twinkle)

Little pumpkin there you stand (pumpkin on the floor)

I will grab you with my hands (pick up pumpkin)

Raise my pumpkin way up high (lift up high)

Raise my pumpkin to the sky

Little pumpkin down you come (lower to the ground)

Now around you I will run! (run around pumpkin)

(repeat and change last two lines to: “down you thump, now around you I will jump”

CAN YOU HOLD A PUMPKIN (tune: Happy and you know it)

Can you hold a pumpkin in your hand ? Yes I can! (hold pumpkin)

Can you hold a pumpkin in your hand? Yes, I can!

Can you hold a pumpkin, can you hold a pumpkin,

Can you hold a pumpkin in your hand? Yes, I can!
