One of our Halloween favorites is Five Little Pumpkins. This is the classic chant that everybody knows. It's short and sweet and easy for a preschooler to memorize. "Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, the first one says 'Oh my, it's getting late'..." All five pumpkins say something and then they roll out of sight.
We made our own five little pumpkins out of paper lunch bags. We painted them and drew on faces, stuffed newspaper in and tied it with a pipe cleaner.
Then we lined up the pumpkins on our "gate" and knocked them over one by one with a ball. This was a huge hit. They played for a long time, eventually throwing the pumpkins at each other, but they were having fun.
Lainey is like her mama. She didn't think it was logical to stand so far back so she just got right up there and used the ball to knock over the pumpkins.
