Halloween Songs For Kids

Three Little Pumpkins

One little, two little, three little pumpkins
Rolled down the lane like funny bumpkins
Had their faces carved and thought they were somethins:
Funny Halloween jack-o-lanterns

the first day of Halloween (tune:12 Days of Christmas)

On the first day of Halloween  my true love gave to me
an owl in a dead tree
2-trick or treaters
3-black cas
5-scary spooks
6-gobblins gobbling
7-pumpkins glowing
8-monsters shrieking
9-ghosts a-booing
10-ghouls a-groaning
11-masks a-leering
12-bats a-flying

Hello, (name), Spook-E-Do
What is the trick you are going to do
Will you hop, or bend, or spin around
Stretch, or wiggle, or touch the ground

Continue until all the children have had a chance to show their trick.

Friendly Ghost – Song – Sung to Are You Sleeping

I’m a friendly ghost; I’m a friendly ghost
Watch me fly; watch may fly
I can fly right through the air
See how all the people stare
Way up high in the sky

I Said My Pajamas

I said my pajamas
I slipped on my prayers
I went up my slippers
I took off my stairs
I turned off the bed
I jumped in the light
The reason for this is
You gave me a fright!


I am a pumpkin, big and round (use arms to show size of pumpkin)
Once upon the time I grew on the ground (point to the ground)
Now I have a mouth, two eyes, a nose (point to features on your face)
What are they there for, do you suppose? (Right forefinger to forehead,
thinking gesture)
When I have a candle inside (hold up right forefinger)
Shining bright
I’ll be a Jack-O-Lantern on Halloween night! (Thumbs in armpits-bragging

Late On A Dark And Stormy Night

Late on a dark and stormy night
Three witches stirred with all their might
Two little ghosts said, “How do you do?”
The Wizard went tiptoe, tiptoe

On A Dark, Dark Night

On a dark, dark, night
In a dark, dark wood
In a dark, dark house
In a dark, dark room
In a dark, dark cupboard
On a dark, dark shelf
In a dark, dark box
There was a GHOST!

Three Little Ghostesses

Three little ghostesses
Sitting on postesses
Eating buttered toastesses
Greasing their fistesses
Up to their wristesses
Oh what beastesses
To make such feastesses

First You Take A Pumpkin Tune: Sing a song of sixpence

First you take a pumpkin (arms out front in a circle)

Big and round and fat

Then you cut the top off (sawing motion)

That will make the hat (hand on head)

Then you hollow out the (scooping motion)

Nose and mouth and eyes (point to each)

Show it to the children for a Halloween surprise (hands out, palms up)

Here is Jack-O-Happy

Here is Jack-O-Sad

Here is Jack-O-Frightened

Here is Jack-O-Mad

Here is Jack-I-Pieces small,

But in a pie, He’s best of all!
