Halloween Songs, Poems, & Fingerplays


Five Little Pumpkins

Let children draw and cut out their Jack-o-Lanterns from orange construction paper.
Using a black color or pencil, help them draw on faces. Using wooden dowels, tape the
 dowels to the backs of the pumpkins and recite the following poem.

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, Oh my, its getting late.
The second one said, There are witches in the air.
The third one said, But we dont care.
The fourth one said, Lets run. Lets run,
The fifth one said, Its Halloween fun.
WOOOOOOO, went the wind,
And out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled our of sight.


One Little, Two Little Three Little Pumpkins

(Sung to the tune of "One little, Two Little, Three Little Indians")

One little, two little, three little pumpkins,
Four little, five little, Six little pumpkins,
Seven little, Eight little, nine little pumpkins
Ready for Halloween night!


Halloween Parade 

Five white ghosts and seven goblins, 
Go parading down the street,
Boys and girls with funny faces, 
Asking for a treat. 

If a goblin rings my doorbell,
I will say "I'm not afraid!"
I will light my jack-o-lantern,
For the Halloween parade. 

I will give these scary people,
Apples, candy, cakes to eat;
Then I'll wave goodbye and watch them
As they march off down the street.


The Great Pumpkin

(Sung to the tune of:  "Did You Ever See a Lassie")

I am the Great Pumpkin,
Great Pumpkin, Great Pumpkin.
I am the Great Pumpkin.
Come dance with me.
For your friends are my friends
 and my friends are your friends.
I am the Great Pumpkin.
Come dance with me.


I Look In The Mirror

I look in the mirror
And what do I see?
I see a princess
Looking at me.

Repeat the rhyme with each of
your children, substituting the name of
his or her costume for princess.


Hiding Jack-O-Latern

(Sung to the tune of:  "Itsy Bitsy Spider")

Funny Jack-O-Latern,
Where are you hiding?
Are you over here?
Or are you under there?
I will keep on looking,
until I find you.
Funny jack-o-latern,
There you are!



Jack -O'Lantern I

The jack -o'lantern chuckled
Then winked his funny eye,
"I would rather be a pumpkin-face
Than be inside a pie!"
Jolly wolly pumpkin face
You're happy tell us why.
I'd rather be a pumpkin face
And not a pumpkin pie!


Jack-O-Latern II

(Sung to the tune of: " Oscar Meyer Wiener Song")

Oh I wish I was an Orange
That is what I really want to be
For if I was an orange Jack-O-Latern
Everyone would laugh and smile at me.


Did You Ever See a Pumpkin

(Sung to tune of: "Did You Ever See a Lassie")

Did You ever seen a pumpkin, a pumpkin, a pumpkin 
Did you ever see a pumpkin with no face at all.
With no eyes and no nose and no mouth and no teeth
Did you ever see a pumpkin with no face at all.
So I made a Jack-O-Latern,
a Jack-O-Latern, a Jack-O-Latern,
So I made a Jack-O-Latern with a big funny face
With big eyes, and a big nose and big mouth and big teeth
So I made a Jack-O-Latern with a big funny face.


Trick or Treat

Witches, ghosts, and goblins.
Stealing down the street,
Knock on every door way,
Trick or treat!
When your door is opened,
This is what you meet,
Scary creatures shouting,
Trick or treat!


Pumpkin I

Pumpkin pumpkin 
Big and round, 
I'm glad you grow 
Upon the ground. 
I'm glad you don't 
Grow in a tree 
For then you might 
Fall down on me. 


Pumpkin II

We bought a fat orange pumpkin 
The plumpest sort they sell. 
We neatly scooped the inside out
And only left the shell. 
We carved a funny funny-face 
Of silly shape and size, 
A pointy nose, a jagged mouth
And two enormous eyes. 
We set it in a window 
And we put a candle in, 
Then lit it up for all to see 
Our jack-o'lantern grin. 


Halloween Surprise

(Sung to the tune of: Sing A Song Of Sixpence")

First you take a pumpkin  (arms for large pumpkin before tummy)
Big and round and fat
Then you cut the top off  (pretend to slice)
That will make the hat  (hand on head)
Then you hollow out the
Nose and mouth and eyes   (point to nose, mouth, and eyes)
Show it to the children for a  (resume first position)
Halloween Surprise!


Halloween Song

(Sung to the tune of:  "Yankee Doodle Dandy") 

I'll carve a fearful pumpkin face 
As well as I am able, 
And when it's done I'll light it up 
And set on a table. 
I'll fix it up so passersby 
Will see and get the quivers 
For Halloween's the time to play 
So we have shakes and shivers! 


Pumpkin Bells

(Sung to the tune of: "Jingle Bells")

Dashing through the streets
In our costumes bright and gay
To each house we go
Laughing all the way
Halloween is here
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to trick or treat
And sing pumpkin carols tonight.
Oh, pumpkin bells, pumpkin bells
Ringing loud and clear
Oh what fun Great Pumpkin brings
When Halloween is here.


I Had A Little Pumpkin

I had a little pumpkin,
I gave it two big eyes.
I cut a round and tiny nose
and a great big mouth that smiles.
Now I hide behind a bush and 
wait until it's dark.
Then when someone comes along
What a surprise!"
