FLOWER SONGS

SEE THE GIANT SUNFLOWERS
Sung to: "Down By the Station"

Out in the garden, early in the springtime,
See the little sunflowers standing in a row.
See the happy farmer giving them some water,
Slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp, weed and hoe!

Out in the garden, later in the summer,
See the giant sunflowers standing in a row.
See the happy farmer giving them some water,
Slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp, watch them grow!

I MADE A MAY BASKET

Tune: "A Tisket, A Tasket"
 
A tisket, a tasket,
I made a May basket.
I filled it up with flowers to say,
I hope you have a nice May day.
 
A tisket, a tasket,
I made a May basket.
I put it on your door today,
Then rang the bell and ran away.
Jean Warren

FLOWERS EVERYWHERE
Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
 
Flowers, flowers everywhere,
In the garden, in my hair.
In the vase, at the store,
On the table, on the door.
What a lovely time of year,
Flowers blooming, bringing cheer.
Jean Warren
 
PRETTY FLOWERS

Tune: "Jingle Bells"
 
Pretty flowers, pretty flowers,
Growing everywhere.
Here are some pretty flowers
For your coat or hair.
 
Pretty flowers, pretty flowers,
Gold and pink and blue.
Red and yellow, orange and purple,
I picked them just for you!
Jean Warren

FLOWERS GROWING SONG
Tune: "The Mulberry Bush"
 
Have your children lay on the floor and curl up into balls.
Have them pretend they are tiny seeds buried in the ground.
 
This is the way we sprout our roots,
Sprout our roots, sprout our roots.
This is the way we sprout our roots,
When spring time is here.
 
This is the way we pop through the dirt,
Pop through the dirt, pop through the dirt.
This is the way we pop through the dirt
When spring time is here.
Jean Warren

Additional verses:

This is the way we stretch and grow.
This is the way we shoot up so tall.
This is the way we open our buds.
This is the way we bend in the breeze.
This is the way we smile at the sun.


FLOWER FINGERPLAY

A hand is a bud                   
Closed up tight                     (close hand into a fist)
Without a tiny
Speck of light.

Then slowly the petals
Open for me                          (slowly open hand, one finger at a time)
And here is a beautiful
Flower I see!
