Spring Songs, Poems and Finger Plays

 Spring Won't Spring!
Sing to tune of "This is the Song That Never Ends" (Shari Lewis & Lambchop)
This winter doesn't want to end,
It just goes on and on my friend.
Some people started thinking that it would be over soon,
But every day it snows some more and now it's almost June! (repeat over and over again!)
 
Do you see a sign of Spring? (tune of "If I were a lassiie")
Oh, do you see a sign of Spring
a sign of Spring, a sign of Spring?
Oh, do you see a sign of spring?
Please, tell us what you see!
 
Fun in the Rain ( Tune: Deck the Halls)
Do you hear the pitter patter? Hear the little raindrops falling down.
Can you see the splashing water? All the little raindrops on the ground.
Time to get our big umbrellas We don't want to get our hair all wet.
If you wear your boots and raincoat, We will go outside and splash a bit!
 
Raindrops
Rain is falling down
Rain is falling down (raise arms, flutter fingers to the ground)
Pitter-patter
Pitter-patter
Rain is falling down.
 
Creepy Crawly Caterpillar
A creepy crawly caterpillar that I see(shade eyes)
Makes a chrystalis in the big oak tree. (make body into a ball)
He stays there, and I know why (slowly stand up)
Because soon he will be a butterfly (flap arms)
 
Spring is here (tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
The days of Spring are here,
Warm, sunny days are near,
Flowers and bees, and birds in trees.
The days of spring are here.
 
Spring is Here (tune of Are You Sleeping)
I see robins, I see bird's nests,
Butterflies too, flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here, spring is here.

 Marching Ants
Let your pretend to march like the ants do.

Here is a nest for the robin; (cup both hands)
Here is a hive for the bee; (Fists together)
Here is a hole for the bunny; (Finger and thumb form a circle)
And here is a house for me! (Fingertips together make roof)

Rain, Rain go away
Come again another day
Little *child’s name*
Wants to play.

Robins are Here sung to the tune Frere Jacques
Robins are here, robins are here
is must be spring it must be spring
robins are here, chirp chirp chirp

Spring Is Here (Sung To: Are You Sleeping)
I see robins,
I see bird's nests,
Butterflies too,
flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here, spring is here.

Spring Poem
Some days seem like winter,
Some are nice and warm.
Rainy days and windy days,
Maybe it will storm.
Warm or cold or wet or dry,
What will the weather be?
I think Spring is trying to play
Peek-a-boo with me

Beautiful Rainbow Came
One day the sun was shining bright (hold up right hand like blocking sunlight)
But some clouds came along and it became black as night
(Hold up left hand for the clouds)
Then the rain began to sprinkle onto the ground
(wiggle fingers for the rain coming down)
And soon it was raining all over the town.
But when the clouds had passed on by (move both hands to one side)
A big beautiful rainbow stretched across the sky
(make a rainbow arc with your hands)

The Days of Spring (Sung to: Farmer in the Dell
The days of Spring are here,
Warm, sunny days are near,
Flowers and bees, and birds in trees.
The days of spring are here.

Caterpillar Change
There was a little caterpillar crawling all about. (Walk with fingers on arm)
He worked and he worked without a doubt. (Wiggle fingers)
Wrapping himself in a snug cocoon.(Wrap other hand around fingers)
Waiting and waiting, will it be soon? (hold fingers)
Look, he's coming out, my oh my! (raise arms in excitement)
For now he's become a beautiful butterfly (Cross thumbs and flap hands like wings)

The Flower Song
The flower has some petals, the flower has some petals.
The petals call the birds and bees, the flower has some petals
The flower has some leaves, the flower has some leaves.
The leaves will catch the rain and sun, the flower has some leaves.
The flower has a stem, the flower has a stem.
The stem will make it stand up tall, the flower has a stem.
The flower has some roots, the flower has some roots.
The roots will carry food and drink, the flower has some roots.

W-I-N-D-Y
There was a day when we were blown
And windy was the weather-O,
W-I-N-D-Y, W-I-N-D-Y, W-I-N-D-Y,
And windy was the weather. Continue

Popcorn Popping
I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn, popping on the apricot tree.
Spring has brought me such a nice surprise
Popcorn popping right before my eyes
I can take a handful and make a treat
A popcorn ball that smells so sweet
It wasn't really so, but it seemed to be
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.

Planting Seeds
First you take the seed and you plant it in the ground (pretend to plant seeds in hand)
Next a rain cloud comes and waters all around (Use one hand to simulate rain)
Next the sun shines brightly, without a sound (use fingers like sun)
And in just a few days, a flower is found (open hand like flower)

Caterpillar in a Box
A fuzzy caterpillar wiggled down a tree
He wiggled long, he wiggled short, he wiggled right at me.
I put him in a box and said Please don't go from me,
But when I looked again, I saw a butterfly not he.

Colors up in the Rainbow
Red and orange, green and blue, shiny yellow, purple too.
All the colors that we know, live up in the rainbow.
Red and orange, green and blue, shiny yellow, purple too.

Let's Go Fly A Kite
Let's go fly a kite
Up where it's clear and bright
Let's all go fly a kite
Let's go fly a (pick a color) kite
Up where it's clear and bright
Let's go fly a (pick a color) kite

Rain on the Grass
Rain on the green grass,
Rain on the tree,
Rain on the house top.
But not on me.

The Caterpillar
The fuzzy little caterpillar went up into a tree (act like your climbing)
spun his cocoon and then (yawn) went to sleep (spin hands)
While he was sleeping he dreamt that he could fly (making flying motion)
When he woke up (loud, excited) he was a butterfly.

Hunting Bugs
A-hunting we will go
A -hunting we will go
We'll catch a (insert any insect here)
and put it in a box
(loudly) and then we'll let it go!

The Little Caterpillar (Sung to "Itsy, Bitsy Spider")
The little caterpillar crawled up into a tree,
Spun his cocoon and slept so quietly,
All through the winter he didn't make a sound,
He dreamt of his new life when he'd be flying all around.
While he was sleeping the snow did gently fall,
Winter came and went, then her heard the robin's call,
Come on Mr. Butterfly, out of your cocoon
Spread your wings and fly for me, while I sing my tune.

Colors of the Rainbow
Red, and Yellow and Pink and Green, Purple and Orange and Blue
I can sing a rainbow.. . I Sing a rainbow... and so can you.

Red, and Yellow and Pink and Green, Purple and Orange and Blue
I Can Dance A Rainbow... I Can Dance A Rainbow... and so can you

Planting Flowers
Planting flowers, planting flowers
In the ground, in the ground,
Water them and they grow,
Water them and they grow,
All around, all around.

Plant A Little Seed
I plant a little seed in the cold, cold ground (Squat down pretend to plant)
Out comes the yellow sun, big and round (Put arms above head like sun)
Down come the raindrops soft and slowly (dancing fingers)
Up comes the flower grow, grow, grow (jump as flower emerges)

Caterpillar (Sung To "Row, row your boat")
One caterpillar , two caterpillars, three caterpillars today.
Four caterpillars, five caterpillars eating all the day.
One cocoon, two cocoons three cocoons today.
Four cocoons, five cocoons sleeping all the day.
One butterfly, two butterflies three butterflies today.
Four butterflies, five butterflies, flying, flying away.

A Seedlings Song
I am only now a seedling planted with hands so very young
I have but just one wish, to reach and touch the sun
My little leaves are fragile, my stem is very new
My roots can barely hold me up, but you can help me through.

I need only a few things, to keep me alive and well
Some water, love and sunshine, Then time will surely tell.
If my leaves look kind of droopy, something to drink will do the trick
And feed me a little fertilizer, to prevent me from getting sick.

This pot I live in now is a temporary hold;
I'll need to be replanted, as I will soon grow old.
The hardest thing to do my friend is to sit and watch and wait
For the wonderful surprise I'll bring, Please be patient and have faith

For your effort, love and support will all be over soon;
Visit me in a month or two and I'll reward you with a bloom.
But please don't cut me down I can surprise you once again,
Let me finish my flower and seed and next year, I'll be back my friend.

The Gardening Song
First you take a shovel, a rake, and a hoe
Plant a little garden, Plant seeds in a row
Water them and weed them through all the summer heat
And then you'll have some flowers or vegetables to eat.

Fuzzy Caterpillar
The fuzzy caterpillar curled up on a leaf.
Spun her little chrysalis and then fell fast asleep.
While she was sleeping, she dreamed that she could fly.
And later when she woke up, she was a butterfly.

The Flower Song
The flower has some petals, the flower has some petals.
The petals call the birds and bees, the flower has some petals
The flower has some leaves, the flower has some leaves.
The leaves will catch the rain and sun, the flower has some leaves.
The flower has a stem, the flower has a stem.
The stem will make it stand up tall, the flower has a stem.
The flower has some roots, the flower has some roots.
The roots will carry food and drink, the flower has some roots.

Six Silly Spiders
Six silly spiders standing in a row (Hold up three fingers on each hand)
They just do not know where to go (Wiggle fingers.)
But when someone comes to spray (pretend to spray water)
They will be off on their way (wiggle fingers away.)
In the sea are seven seals. (Hold up three finger and four fingers.)
Swimming and splashing are some of their skills. (Pretend to swim.)
Soon the seals are surprised (Throw hand up as surprised.)
By a fish that's twice their size. (Hold arms wide)
Swim, little seals, as swiftly as you ca (Pretend to swim fast.)
Or there may be only six in your clan (Hold up three fingers on each hand)

Buzzing Bees
Bees, Bees, Bees, Bees
Buzzing in bushes and buzzing in trees
Buzzing around, wherever they please
There's nothing so sweet
As sweet as a honey bee.

I Plant A Seed (Sung to: I'm a Little Teapot)
I plant a little seed in the cold, cold ground.
Out comes the yellow sun, big and round.
Down come the raindrops soft and slowly
Up comes the flower grow, grow, grow!

Planting Flowers (Sung to: Ferez Jacques)
Planting flowers, Planting flowers,
In the ground, In the ground,
Water them and they grow,
Water them and they grow,
All around, All around.

April Rain
Dance little raindrop (wiggle fingers)
Tap with tiny feet (tap feet)
The seeds will awaken (pretend to sleep and awake)
When they hear our beat (cup hand over ear)
Grow little seeds (sq
And see the cloudy sky (point to sky

Some Rabbits (Sung To: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)
Some rabbits have bright shiny noses.
I'm telling you now as a friend.
The reason their noses are shiny
Their powder puffs on the wrong end.
Wrong end, wrong end, their powder puffs on the wrong end.

The Ants Go Marching
The ants go marching one by one. . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching one by one. . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching one by one
The little one stops to suck his thumb
And they all go marching
Down, to the ground
Boom, Boom, Boom
The ants go marching two by two . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching two by two . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching two by two
The little one stops to tie his shoe
And they all go marching
Down, to the ground
Boom, Boom, Boom
The ants go marching three by three . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching three by three . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching three by three
The little one stops cause he skinned his knee
And they all go marching
Down, to the ground
Boom, Boom, Boom
The ants go marching four by four . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching four by four . . . Hoorah, hoorah
The ants go marching four by four
The little one stops to shut the door
And they all go marching
Down to the ground
Boom Boom Boom


Raindrops
Pitter-patter raindrops (wiggle fingers to imitate falling rain)
falling from the sky.
Here is my umbrella, (hands over head)
to keep me safe and dry.
When the rain is over
and the sun begins to glow, (make large circle with arms)
little flowers begin to bud; (cup hands together)
and grow and grow and grow. (spread hands apart slowly


Signs of Spring
( Muffin Man)
Do you see a sign of Spring
a sign of Spring, a sign of Spring
Do you see a sign of Spring
Tell us what you see.
