I made these five little pumpkins for our counting songs, but I also have pom-pom pumpkins for my Silly Glove.
Pumpkins on a Vine
Tune: This Old Man
Five pumpkins on a vine,
Each little pumpkin’s feeling fine.
And a Fall wind blows (*Woosh) a pumpkin down the hill.
How many pumpkins are there still.
*Woosh: At this point, I stop the song briefly to have the kids blow like the Fall wind. (This was surprisingly funny to my kids!)
Five Little Pumpkins on a Gate
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one says, "Oh my! It's getting late!"
**The second one says, "There are witches in the air!"
The third one says, "But we don't care!"
The forth one says, "I'm ready for some fun!"
The fifth one says, "Let's run and run and run!"
Ooooooh! Goes the wind and out goes the lights,
And five little pumpkins roll out of sight.
The second one says, "There's a chill in the air!"
Many people sing this song, and everyone has a different melody. I usually chant this one, but this is Raffi's version. (The video leaves something to be desired, but the song is gold!)
