Check out over 130 Halloween songs, chants, and fingerplays for kids!


Two Little Ghosts


Two little ghosts, smiling at you,

One named Who, one named Boo (raise one finger on each hand.)

Fly away, Who (fly one hand behind back), fly away, Boo (fly other hand behind back),

Come back Who (bring one hand in front), come back Boo! (bring other hand to the front while shouting BOO!)


Black Cat

Black cat, black cat, looking for a witch,

All around the night, as dark as pitch.

You can see because your eyes are green,

Black cat, black cat, it is HALLOWEEN !


Witch BINGO

There is a woman who rides a broom, and Witch is her name-o.

When you turn over each letter, say “Hee” in the place of the letter.


Ghost BINGO

You see him around on Halloween night, and Ghost is his name-o.

When you flip over the letters, say “boo” in the place of the letter.


Halloween Chant

Halloween, Halloween,

Halloween, Halloween,

Oh, what funny things are seen.

Witches hats,

Coal-black cats,

Broomstick riders,

Mice and rats!


Flutter, Flutter, Little Bat

It’s sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Flutter, flutter, little bat,

How I wonder where you’re at.

Up above the midnight sky,

Peeking at me with yellow eyes.

Flutter, flutter, little bat,

How I wonder where you’re at.


What a Fright!

To the tune of Pop goes the Weasel.

Moans and groans and skeleton bones,
It’s Halloween tonight!
Shh! I fear a ghost is near,
BOO, what a fright!

Up the street, we’ll trick or treat,
We’ll dance beneath the moonlight.
We’ll beware if there’s a scare,
BOO what a fright!

Witches, cats and flapping bats,
Are bootiful tonight.
Never fear if goblins appear,
BOO what a fright!


Black Cat (sung slow – almost spoken)

Black cat, black cat,
What do you think of that?
Slowly slinking in the night (crawling motion with hands),

Eyes that glow with golden light (hold hands up around eyes).
Purring softly, can’t be seen,
He’ll come out on Halloween (pretend to be holding and petting a cat).

Black Cat, black cat,

What do you think of that? SCAT!
(at scat make hand go from fists to out-stretched fingers.)


The Pumpkin on the Vine (tune of the Farmer in the Dell.)

The pumpkin on the vine,
The pumpkin on the vine.
I picked the one that weighed a ton, and that’s the one that’s mine.
I carved two funny eyes,
A mouth that’s over-sized.
The other gook,
my mother took,
For making pumpkin pie.
Oh, the pumpkin on the vine,
The pumpkin on the vine.
I picked the one that weighed a ton, and that’s the one that’s mine.


Witch Chant

I’m a witch, I’m a witch,
With a pointed hat on my head.
I jump on my broom,
And sweep the sky,
When the children are in bed.
