Five Little Pumpkins
supplies needed:

"Five Little Pumpkins, sitting on a gate.
The first one says, 'Oh My! It's getting late!'
The second one says, 'There's witches in the air!'
The third one says, 'Well, I don't care!'
The fourth one says, 'Let's run and run and run!'
The fifth one says, 'Let's have some fun!'
So, OOoooooOoo went the wind,
and OUT went the lights!
And, five little pumpkins rolled out of site!"
My kids LOVE this! We make up our own hand movements for each of the lines. I printed off pumpkin pictures and glue them to sticks and the kids loved holding them up and hiding them behind their backs as the pumpkins rolled away!
Halloween is HERE!
