I Am A Pumpkin

I am a pumpkin big and round.

Once upon a time I grew on the ground.

But now I have a mouth, two eyes and nose.

What are they for do you suppose?

When I have a candle inside, shining bright,

I’ll be a jack-o-lantern on Halloween night.

Once There Was a Pumpkin

Once there was a pumpkin And it grew (Join the fingers of each hand to make one pumpkin)

And grew (Separate the hand keeping the pumpkin formation)

And grew (Join hands before you, making large pumpkin with arms)

Now it’s a jack-o-lantern

And smiles at you (Swing pumpkin to left)

And you (Move pumpkin before stomach)

And you (Swing pumpkin to right)


I MADE A JACK-O-LANTERN

I made a jack-o-lantern for halloween night.

(form circle w/ hands)

He has three crooked teeth, but he won’t bite

(point to teeth, shake head no)

He has two round eyes, but he can not see

(point to eyes, shut them)

He’s a jolly jack-o-lantern as happy as can be.

(smile!)
