Five little jack-o’lanterns glowing by the door
Father took one and that left four.
Four little jack-o’lanterns, a sight to see
Mother took one and that left three.
Three little jack-o’lanterns lit through and through
Brother took one and that left two.
Two little jack-o’lanterns greeting everyone,
Sister took one and that left one.
One little jack-o’lantern, with a great big grin
I picked him up and took him in.

Pumpkins, pumpkins (Have the kids roll around on the floor like pumpkins)
On the ground,

Action Rhyme Pumpkin Song
[tune: “I’m a Little Teapot” ]I’m a little pumpkin orange and round.
Here is my stem, there is the ground.
When I get all cut up, don’t you shout!
Just open me up and scoop seeds out!
