Songs About the Changing Seasons
After a long, harsh winter, the emergence of spring is exactly what is needed to boost children’s spirits in preparation for the Easter holidays and beyond. The clocks go forward, making the days feel longer and the nights shorter, and the weather becomes brighter, bringing with it a sense of rejuvenation, regrowth and renewal.
For children, this transformation signals a welcome end to those miserable, dark evenings spent stuck indoors and the advent of many happy months playing outside with friends. Singing songs about spring can enhance these positive feelings whilst helping them learn about the cultural customs associated with this time of year.
