Halloween Songs

Hoo!   Tune: Farmer in the Dell

The owl goes Hoo

The owl goes Hoo

Hi ho on Halloween the owl goes Hoo

The ghost goes Booo

The ghost goes Booo

Hi ho on Halloween the ghost goes Booo

(Can make up other verses)


Mrs. Owl sits up in a tree. (Sign owl)

She’s as happy as can be (Pull corners of mouth up to smile with index finger)

She blinks, blinks, blinks (Blink eyes three times)

She thinks, thinks, thinks (Tap head three times)

I wonder what she can see? (look puzzled)

SCARECROW       Tune:  Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear Turn Around

Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, wink one eye.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend your knees.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, flap in the breeze.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head.

HALLOWEEN  Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle

Halloween has come at last.

Jack-o-lanterns and black cats.

Funny faces round about.

People laugh and people shout.

The moon shines bright and cats meow.

Meow, meow, meow, meow.


A face so round (With both hands form a large circle)

And eyes so bright (Point to eyes)

A nose that glows, (Touch nose)

My what a sight! (Clap hands)

A funny mouth (Touch mouth)

With a jolly grin. (Grin with mouth)

No arms. No legs. (Shake arms, then touch legs)

Just head to chin. (Place one hand on head and other on chin)

What am I?
