Halloween Songs


 Sung to Twinkle, Twinkle

I am a trick or treater set to go
Here is my flashlight I’ll walk slow
I always say thank you for my treats
And I never run across the street!


Here is a song and a finger play that my daycare kids love. The first is a song: Spin, Spin, Spin, Little Spiders Spin, Spin, Spin, Little Spiders Spin, Spin, Spin, Little Spiders Early in the morning.

Clap, Clap, Clap, Little Spiders Clap, Clap, Clap, Little Spiders Clap, Clap, Clap, Little Spiders Early in the morning.

Then I vary to dance, march, wiggle, crawl, stomp, run, skip and then I end with:

Sleep, Sleep, Sleep little Spiders Sleep, Sleep, Sleep little Spiders Sleep, Sleep, Sleep little Spiders Early in the morning.

Sometimes I would like them to stay as sleeping spiders, but it never works out that way!!!


Halloween Chant Start by holding up 5 fingers above opposite wrist wiggle hand-

“5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate.” (hold up 1 finger for 1st pumpkin then 2 etc.) The 1st one said “my it’s getting late”. The 2nd one said “there are witches in the air”. The 3rd one said “I don’t care”. The 4th one said let’s run let’s run”. The 5th one said “Isn’t Halloween fun?” (make swishing gesture) Then swish went the wind and out went the lights and the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight. (roll hand over hand)


 Halloween, Halloween

Halloween, Halloween, Big black cats. (make cat claws with hands) Halloween, Halloween, Big black cats. (make cat claws with hand) Witches flew on broom sticks, (fly hand through the air) Wearing pointed hats. (Make a pointed hat with hands on top of head) Halloween, Halloween, Big black cats. (cat claws)


 Hallowe’en Song and fingerplay. 5 Little Witches. “1 little, 2 little, 3 little witches, flying over haystacks, flying over ditches, flying over the moon without any hitches, hi ho Hallowe’en here.”
