IF - From the book Fairies and Chimneys (1918, 12th edition)

Little Birdby Rose Fyleman

If I were a bird with a dear little nest I should always be going for flights,

I'd fly to the North and the South and the West and all the wonderful sights.

I'd perch on the points of the very small spires, and race with the insects and bees,

And there would be parties on telegraph wires, and school at the top of the trees.


If I were a fairy and lived in a flower what fun, oh, what fun it would be !I'd never wear stockings or shoes

I'm certain I never should sleep for an hour, and I'd always have honey for tea;

And never a stocking or shoe would I wear, Nor ever a hat on my head,

And no one would tell me to tidy my hair, and no one would send me to bed.


King and the QueenIf I were a duchess in satin and pearls, I'd curtsey like this and like this;

I'd graciously smile at the lords and the earls, and give them my fingers to kiss.

And mother should dress all in silver and pink, and daddy in silver and green,

And off we should go in a coach, only think, To live with the King and the Queen !


Rose Amy Fyleman (1877-1957) 

was an English writer and poet, noted for her works on the fairy folk, for children.

HAVE YOU WATCHED THE FAIRIES ?


Have you watched the fairies when the rain is doneDragon Back

Spreading out their little wings to dry them in the sun ?

I have, I have ! Isn't it fun?


Fairy SpiritHave you heard the fairies all among the limes

Singing little fairy tunes to little fairy rhymes ?

I have, I have, lots and lots of time !



Have you seen the fairies dancing in the air,

And dashing off behind the stars to tidy up their hair ?

I have, I have; I've been there !

STAINED GLASS...LEAVES AND MELTED CRAYONS

Collect leaves and arrange them on a piece of wax paper. Add wax crayon shavings and apply another piece of wax paper on top.


Iron the wax paper together until crayon shavings have melted.
  • Let cool. Trim into desired shapes and hang in windows.

THE LEAVES IN THE TREES
By Irmgard Guertges
(Sing to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus")

The leaves of the trees turn orange and red
orange and red, orange and red...
The leaves of the trees turn orange and red
All through the town.

The leaves of the trees come tumbling down
tumbling down, tumbling down
The leaves of the trees come tumbling down
All through the town.

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish
Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,
The leaves on the ground.

WHY'S AND THEN WISHES

Wishes, I've got such heaps of wishes.I wish I liked rice pudding, I wish I were a twin,

I wish some day a real live fairy would just come walking in.

I wish when I'm at table my feet would touch the floor,

I wish our pipes would burst next winter just like they did next door.

I wish I could whistle real proper grown up tunes,

I wish they'd let me sweep the chimneys on rainy afternoons.

I've got such  heaps of wishes, I've only said a few;

I wish that I could wake some morning and find them they'd all come true !

DUCK WALK RACE
1.  Have children line up at the Start Line, squat down and grasp their ankles with each hand from behind.
2.  On GO, they waddle to a designated Finish Line.
3.  They can't let go of their ankles or they’re disqualified.
4.  The first child over the Finish Line is the winner... (This would be fun to play with "waddle music" :-)


DRESS A SCARECROW AND RUN

1. Stock up on over-sized plaid shirts, goofy pants, rope belt, floppy hats and any other clothing that a scarecrow might wear.

2. Make piles containing one of each item.
3. The number of piles is determined either by the number of kids or teams participating.
4. Line up kids and let the game begin!
5. The children run to the pile, put on the outfit, and dart back to the starting line.
6. If doing it as a team game, they would then switch the outfit with their teammate-who run out and back.
7. First team with their last team member DRESSED AS A SCARECROW wins.


I'M A LITTLE SCARECROW

To tune of 'I'm a Little Tea Pot'

I'm A Little Scarecrow
Stuffed with hay
Here I stand in a field all day.
When I see the crows,
I like to shout,
"Hey! You crows, you better get out!"
