Halloween Songs


Here is a song that I wrote to sing with my 2 1/2 year old class. We sing this every Halloween. 

Title: Safe Treats (sung to Frere Jacques)
Never eat your treats
Never eat your treats
Till their checked
Till their checked
Show them to Mommy
Show them to Daddy
Make sure they’re safe
Make sure they’re safe


I’m a big orange pumpkin fat and round

Growin’ by the corn field on the ground
I will be a Jack-o-lantern with two big eyes
Or maybe I’ll be baked into two pumpkin pies


First two eyes and then a nose,

Then a mouth with teeth in rows.
Oh! Oh! spooky sight,
Jack-o-lanterns in the night.


Jack-o-lantern, jack-o-lantern,

You are such a funny sight,
As you sit there in the window
Looking out at the night.

Once you were a yellow pumpkin,
Growing on a sturdy vine,
Now you are a jack-o-lantern,
Let the candle light shine.


We sing this song in preschool and it is one of their favorites!

Three Little Witches

One little, two little, three little witches. (Hold up 1,2,3 fingers)
Fly over haystacks, fly over ditches. (Make flying motion with hands)
Fly over moonbeams without any hitches. (Make flying motion with opposite hand.)
Hey, Ho, Halloween Night! (Clap)

One little, two little, three little witches. (Hold up 1,2,3 fingers)
Fly over barb wire and tore there britches. (Make flying motion with one hand, then turn and show your “torn britches”)
Had to go home and get some stitches. (Pretend to sew)
Hey, Ho, Halloween Night! (Clap)
