Fruity Songs

Fruity Songs

imagesWe have been enjoying talking more about fruit this month and trying new flavors! We enjoyed making our fruit salad together earlier this week, and the children enjoyed eating it even more. Today we felt, smelled and tasted a kiwi and a pomegranate, and it was pretty great to have the children asking for more! In addition to trying the fruit, they got great practice sitting at the table and using their listening ears and watching eyes. We were able to talk about safety in the kitchen as well as how much fun it can be to try new foods!

Here are a couple of fruit-related songs to try at home!

Mango Fandango
Mama! Mama! I want a mango

Papa! Papa! Please, papaya.
No, no Nana, a ripe banana
Kiwi kiwi kiwi kiwi quince!

Red berries, berries blue, these are fruits so good for you,
Cherries, cherries sweet and new, and coconuts, yes they’re fruit too!

Orange oranges, lemons yellow, fill my tummy sweet and mellow
Vitamins grown on a tree in pretty packages for you and me.

Oh they travel many miles, fill our hearts with many smiles
Sweet delicious tasty treats from Mother Nature a gift to eat!

I Like to Eat Apples and Bananas
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

Repeat by substituting different vowel sounds . . .

For example, O loke to ote, ote, ote opples and bononos. Our friends think this is the best!

The Apple Tree
Way up high in the apple tree, two little apples smiled at me,
I shook that tree as hard as I could, down came those apple, mmm, they’re good!
