Gardening Songs and Fingerplays for Kids

Planting Time

Author Unknown | Sung to: “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

Dig, dig, dig the earth
(make digging motion)
Then you plant your seeds
(pretend to drop seeds)
A gentle rain
(Flutter fingers down)
And bright sunshine
(Circle arms above head)
Will help your flowers grow
(Hold one arm parallel to ground and move other arm up behind it with fingers extended to represent a flower growing)

I’ll Plant A Little Seed 

Author Unknown | Sung to: “I’m A Little Teapot”

I’ll plant a little seed in the dark, dark ground.
Out comes the yellow sun, big and round.
Down comes the cool rain, soft and slow.
Up comes the little seed, grow, grow, grow!

The Seeds Grow

Author Unknown | Sung to: “Farmer in the Dell”

The Gardner plants the seeds
The Gardner plants the seeds
Deep down inside the ground
The Gardner plants the seeds

The rain clouds give them water
The rain clouds give them water
seeds need some water to drink
The rain clouds give them water

The sun gives heat and light
The sun gives heat and light
Seeds like it warm and bright
The sun gives heat and light

The Gardner pulls the weeds
The Gardner pulls the weeds
Seeds need the room to grow
The Gardner pulls the weeds

The seeds grow into flowers
The seeds grow into flowers
Flowers that are beautiful
The seeds grow into flowers

I’m a Tiny Seed

Author Unknown | Sung to: “I’m a Little Teapot”

I’m a tiny seed, deep in the ground
I lie asleep – I don’t make a sound
I am waking up now – see me sprout
