It’s Springtime…let’s sing about rain. Springtime is for rain, thunderstorms, flowers blooming, and even more rain. There are so many fun songs and activities that kids will enjoy learning. In this post, I am sharing some of my absolute favorites. As well as learning the songs with the motions, kids can add shakers or other instruments that sound like rain, and can even make a thunderstorm by adding drums.
It’s Raining, It’s Pouring
It’s raining it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.
Fingers wiggle back and forth, point to your nose
He went to bed and bumped his head and couldn’t get up in the morning.
Hands together and lay your head on them, then bump your head on your hands, then pretend to pull the covers up and stay in bed.
Rain Rain, Go Away
Rain rain, go away
Fingers wiggle downward, point over your shoulders with thumbs.
Come again another day.
Walk in place and wave
Singing in the Rain
I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain
Cup hands over mouth and aim mouth at the sky
What a glorious feeling, I’m ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch whoo, ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch whoo!
Cross arms over chest like you’re loving it and then pat on the ch and on whoo put hands in the air
I Don’t Care if the Rain Comes Down
I don’t care if the rain comes down, I’m gonna dance all day. (Repeat)
Snap (4x) Dance in place
Hey hey carry me away, I’m gonna dance all day. (Repeat)
Wave arms over head, dance in place
What are your favorite songs about rain?
If you are a parent, student, or teacher who wants to learn more about music, connect with other musicians, or wants to post their latest videos of what they’ve been working on, I would love for you to join my Facebook group Music Education Connection. Collaborate, learn from each other, and grow new friendships. This is a place to receive encouragement, positive feedback, and to ask questions.
