Count the Pumpkins
A little pumpkin make a small circle
A middle sized pumpkin a larger circle
A great big pumpkin I see biggest circle
Now let’s count the pumpkins
1 2 3!

Itsy Bitsy Spider
The itsy, bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain,
So the itsy, bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Variations:
Teeny Weeny Spider…
Great Big Spider…

Music

These songs are not strictly Halloween themed but are perfect for the season.

Leaves are Falling by Miss Carole
We wiggle our fingers in a downward mortion to simulate the falling leave and point to our nose, toes, head, ears, and elbows
Pumpkin, Pumpkin by Miss Carole
I pull out the shakers for this song. We shake to the beat as well as draw circles, triangle, and a smiley mouth in the air.

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one said, “Oh my it’s getting late.
The second one said, “There are witches in the air.”
The third on said, “But we don’t care!”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
The fifth one said, “We are ready for some fun!”
The oooohhhh oooohhhhh went the wind,
And out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
