Umbrella Song

This song explores both the sounds and rhythm of the rain.

Down come the raindrops SPLASH, SPLASH, SPLASH! (stamp feet on the splashes)

Let’s run for cover, DASH, DASH, DASH!  (run on the spot)

Pitter patter, pitter patter, DRIP, DRIP, DROP! (clap hands in rhythm)

I’m under my umbrella till the raindrops STOP! (put up pretend umbrella)

Hints and Tips

  • Before you sing the song, practice tapping the different sounds with some percussion instruments.
  • Once the children are familiar with the rhythms they enjoy recognising them in the song and combining them with the actions.
  • At the end of the song, ask each child to describe their umbrella, adding that the best thing about pretend ones, is that they can be any colour or pattern you like!
  • Then you could suggest that they draw a picture of themselves with their imaginary umbrellas!
