One May Day tradition is the secret delivery of flowers. This posts delivers some flower songs older adults may recognize. You can further extend the music by checking out last year’s post.

Why not start with some moving to a song they likely recognize but do not sing: “Roof Garden“? Another option would be “Orange Blossom Special“.

Here are some songs for singing.

Looking for more songs? Visit Green Book of Songs – a great resource I like to use. For those wishing to further extend the activity, you can create a list of various kinds of flowers. There are many resources on the internet. Here is a link to one.
