Looking for a fall singing time activity before delving into holiday music? This It’s Autumntime Primary singing time idea is so easy and doubles as a great wiggle song too!

I love how in an instant, the Primary room looks just like the leaves on the trees in the fall!  And the Primary kids love swaying their leaves to the simple actions.

I was at our local story time at the library.  They passed out die cut leaves on strings to all the kids.  The Primary music leader in me just KNEW it would be perfect to pull into singing time!

TIP: If you don’t have time to create leaves, scarves work well for this activity too!

These leaves work well with a few fall Primary songs, It’s Autumntime, Autumn Day and Rain is Falling.  The leaves are so simple to prepare.  You only need a few supplies:

  • laminated leaf die-cuts with a hole punched into them
  • about an 8-inch string attached

When we used the leaves in story time, each child got a leaf and held it by the string up high (while standing).  As we sung, the leaves started falling downward, in a back-and-forth motion.  We ended with the leaves resting on the ground.  The kids LOVED it!  What a great fall wiggle song!

  1. We do the same thing! I also do the "Rain Is Falling All Around" song substituting "leaves" for rain. Nursery kids especially love these songs/leaves. Thanks for sharing all your ideas!!
