When Ds, Dh and I went to visit the local Waldorf school, they sang some lovely songs, the teacher had a trick or two to show the kids after snack (she made fireworks by squeezing the finished orange peels over a candle!!) and had some great stories ~ and we only spent about 1/2 hour there!!!!
Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find these songs, stories etc written down??? I'd love to have a little book of these things to use with Ds, especially the songs as he is really into singing and music and I am wanting to learn to play the guitar and play some children's music. Thanks in advance!!!

There are lots orf resources for kids music. (Rise Up Singing, Sings Through the Year, Waldorf school songbooks, etc) Look especially for "pentatonic" songs, since that is what Waldorf schools are known for teaching to young children.

You can search the online database here and get a listing of Wladorf style books for any subject.
Here's a search that I did there for music:

You could also see if the school has a lending library. Many do and have books and books of songs and festivals.
