In our Summer garden & other songs for circle time

summer garden steps

For circle time at our parent-led Waldorf inspired playgroup, we bring together the parents and children by singing

Here’s my hand

Give yours to me

Come together in a ring

Come and circle with me

And as we sing, we walk in a circle around the green lawn. Our hands outstretched for our little ones to take our hands. Joining us to sing some seasonal songs.

Once we have come together, we start with

Good morning dear earth

Good morning dear sun

Good morning dear trees

And the flowers every one

Good morning dear beasts

And the birds in the trees

Good morning to you

And good morning to me

This is followed by the fun and active song I’m Bounda

I’m Bounda, I’m Bounda, I’m Bounda the kangaroo

I have two floppy ears and two paws, how do you do?

Two paws, how do you do?

I have a long tail and two flat feet

And I like to play where the grass is juicy and sweet

I’m Bounda, I’m Bounda, I’m Bounda the kangaroo

Then my favourite song *smile*

In our Summer garden

Where we singing go

Flowers are blooming, bees are zooming

See the garden grow

{And how our garden has grown! I was just looking back at my photos from early Spring}

Next we get little hands busy with A House For Me

Here is a nest for the magpie (cup both hands together)

Here is a hive for the bee (put fists together)

Here is a hole for the bunny (make a circle with both hands)

And here is a house for me (fingertips together overhead)

A nest is a house for a magpie (cup both hands together)

A hive is a house for a bee (put fists together)

A hole is a house for a bunny (make a circle with both hands)

But a house is a house for me (fingertips together overhead)

Then we transition to morning tea by singing

Polly put the kettle on

Polly put the kettle on

Polly put the kettle on

We’ll all have tea

What are your favourite Summer songs for circle time? And maybe if I get brave enough I can record us singing to share one day!

Blessing, Kelly
