Plant a Little Seed Music

Ideal for Infant, Toddler

A young boy raises his hand while he plays with a drum on the ground.

This activity promotes development and learning by encouraging children to use large muscles to move and balance their own body.

Participants: This activity is intended for parent/child interaction.


Sing the following song to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot” (author unknown) while doing the actions.

  • Plant a little seed in the dark, dark ground (pretend to make a hole in the ground with your hands).
  • Out comes the yellow sun, big and round (raise your arms over your head and clasp hands together).
  • Down comes the cool rain, soft and slow (wiggle your fingers to represent rain).
  • Up comes the little seed, grow, grow, grow (slowly move from a crouching position to a standing one).

Look at and taste garden vegetables, read books about gardens, or draw illustrations to go with the song.
