Cut one 14 inch orange and one 14 inch black crepe paper streamer per child. Either loosely tie on each wrist or have child hold one in each hand. Sing the Hokey Pokey song, revised: Put your orange hand in,
Put your orange hand out,
Put your orange hand in and you shake it all about.
You do the Hookey Spookey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about.
Repeat: black hand…
I made this up with two of the two-and-a-half year-olds in my group. It’s sung to the tune of “Ring Around the Rosey.”
Ring Around the Pumpkins,
Pocket full of spiders,
We all fall down!
The ghosts are in the meadow,
Drinking witches brew,
We all stand up!
My group loves this, we laugh so hard when we play this!
Two Halloween Songs…
Brown Owl (Tune: Brown Bear) (flannel board figures)
Brown Owl Brown Owl, Who do you see? I see a White Ghost looking at me…(Continue using) Purple Bat….Green Witch…. Black Cat and finally Pumpkin pumpkin what do you see? I see a Jack O Lantern looking at me.

Old Mrs Witch (Tune: 1st couple of lines to 3 Blind mice)
Old Mrs. Witch, Old Mrs. Witch. Tell me how you fly, tell me how you fly? I fly on my broom stick, I fly on my broom stick, I fly on my broom stick up in the sky.
