Red and Yellow and Orange and Brown is one of the easiest action Songs For Autumn, and teaches children about the different weather that comes with the changing season. It borrows it’s tune from ‘Skip to my Lou’ , so it’s also very easy to pick up and remember.
Red and yellow and orange and brown, (flutter fingers downwards)
The Autumn leaves are falling down, (flutter fingers downwards)
Soon it’ll rain and the wind will blow, (woosh arms & spin around)
And in the Winter we might have snow! (rub arms as if you’re freezing!)
Although the Summer is over, Autumn is still very much a time when we want to get outside and experience the dramatic changes around us. Even though the seasons come round every year, they are a constant source of interest and wonder. It is always such a pleasure to go out foraging on an Autumn walk – you are never quite sure what you may find, and to come home with your pockets stuffed with all sorts of treasures. These can be used in so many fun and imaginative ways, to make crafts and decorations which bring the beauty of the season into your home.
