Pumpkins, Jack-O-Lanterns, Witches, Oh, My!

Here are some fun songs and fingerplays. Thanks to my fellow Kindermusik teacher, Merri Williams in GA.

Pumpkins on the Ground (To the Tune of: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground
(crouch down)
How’d you get so big and round?
(stretch arms out wide to sides and then make a circle)
Once you were a seed so small,
(pretend to hold a seed)
Now you are a great big ball!
(make huge circle with hands)
Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground
(crouch down)
How’d you get so big and round?
(stretch arms out wide to sides and then make a circle)

Jack-O-Lantern
I am a pumpkin, big and round
(make huge circle with arms)
Once upon the time I grew on the ground
(point to ground)
Now I have a mouth, two eyes, and a nose.
(point to each)
What are they for, do you suppose?
(scratch head)
When I have a candle inside shining bright
(hold up right index finger)
I’ll be a Jack-O-Lantern on Halloween Night
(bragging gesture)

Halloween Witches (to the tune “Ten Little Indians”)

One Little, two little, three little witches
(fold up hand and count three)
Fly over haystacks
(fly hand up and down)
Fly over ditches
Slide down moonbeams without any hitches
(glide hand downwards)
Heigh-ho! Halloweens’ here!

One Dark and Stormy Night
Late one dark and stormy night,
(use spooky voice)
Three little witches were stirring a pot,
(pretend to stir a pot)
Two little ghosts say, How d’ye do?
(lower voice)
Go tiptoe, tiptoe, tiptoe
(say in a whisper)
Boooooooooo!
(very loud) 😀

Have a safe and fun Halloween!
