Autumn is such a magical time. The trees and plants can change their colours as if by magic, sometimes seemingly overnight. The Autumn Fairy Song provides a magical explanation for this mysterious transformation and a delightfully whimsical idea!
The Autumn Fairy Song
A little Autumn fairy,
Sitting in a tree,
Painting all the leaves,
And throwing them at me
Sunny leaves of yellow,
Ruby leaves of red,
Come fluttering down,
All around my head
Soon the branches will be bare,
The leaves will all be shed,
And the squirrels and the hedgehogs,
Will all go to bed!
The Autumn Fairy Song is one of my favourite songs for Autumn, as it really encourages the imagination. The season brings a treasure trove into children’s pockets – conkers , acorns and brightly coloured leaves offer so many possibilities to play and create with.
These simple words are set to the familiar melody of ‘I had A Little Nut Tree’, so it’s very easy to pick up and remember.
Sing the song while you are out on a walk – of you can get to a proper wood then even better. Then bring home your exciting treasures and make some Autumn fairies of your very own.
