Pumpkin Songs


To pick songs, have a bunch of different pumpkins to match or count. Very versatile and used over and over. To the tune of 10 little Indians, we did 1 little, 2 little, 3 little pumpkins. To the tune of 3 blind mice, we did 3 little pumpkins.

With these pumpkins, you can put numbers on the backs for song choices too!


Sung to Are you sleeping
Mr. Pumpkin, Mr. Pumpkin
Big and Fat, Big and Fat
I am gonna eat you, I am gonna eat you
Just like that
Just like that


Did You Ever See a Pumpkin

(sung to the tune Did You Ever See a Lassie)

Did you ever see a pumpkin a pumpkin a pumpkin?
Did you ever see pumpkin with no face at all?
With no eyes and no nose and no mouth and no teeth?
Did you ever see a pumpkin with no face at all.
So I made a Jack-O-Lantern, Jack-O-Lantern, Jack-O-Lantern.
So I made a Jack-O-Lantern with a big funny face.
With big eyes and a big nose and a big mouth and big teeth.
So I made a Jack-O-Lantern with a big funny face.

When you do this song have a pumpkin made of construction paper, flannel here etc. Have one side just as a pumpkin and the other side have a face with eyes, nose, mouth and teeth.


The Pumpkins are Here – (sung to: “The Farmer in the Dell”).

The pumpkins are here, the pumpkins are there. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are everywhere.

The pumpkins are up; the pumpkins are down. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are all around.

The pumpkins are in; the pumpkins are out. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are all about.

The pumpkins are low; the pumpkins are high. The pumpkins, the pumpkins all say, “Good-bye”.

Cut out pumpkin shapes (add faces if you wish) and glue to Popsicle sticks. Let the children use these as props when you sing this song. My son brought this home from his 3 year preschool. He really enjoys singing this song!
