Songs & Rhymes
Rhyme: Five Little Jack-O-Lanterns

Five Little Jack-O-Lanterns
Five little jack-o-lanterns (One hand up) sitting on a gate.
The first one said (Point to thumb) “My, it’s getting late.”
The second one said, (Pointer finger) “I hear a noise.”
The third one said, (Middle finger) “It’s just a lot of boys.”
The fourth one said, (Ring finger) “Come on let’s run.”
The fifth one said, (Little finger) “It’s just Halloween fun.”
“Puff” went the wind (Blow on hand)
And out went the light (Close fingers into fist)
And away went the jack-o-lanterns ,
(Open hand, fingers run behind back)
On Halloween night.

Song: Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, (show 5 fingers)
The first one said, (1 finger)
“Oh, my, it’s getting late.” (hands on cheeks)
The second one said, (2 fingers)
“There are witches in the air.” (point up and look up)
The third one said, (3 fingers)
“But we don’t care.” (wag pointer finger)
The fourth one said, (4 fingers)
“Let’s run and run and run.” (move arms like you’re running)
The fifth one said, (5 fingers)
“I’m ready for some fun.” (punch up w/both fists)
“Whooo!” went the wind, and out went the light, (clap on “out”)
And the five little pumpkins (5 fingers)
rolled out of sight. (roll arms)
