Halloween Songs for Young Children
1. Pumpkin, Pumpkin on the Ground. Explore the wonder of pumpkins growing with this simple fingerplay to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.”
3. Jack-o-Lantern. This sweet song captures the joy of lighting up the Jack-o-Lantern on Halloween.
4. Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Sitting on a Wall. This silly chant was always a favorite at my daycare. The video shows hand motions, or your child may want to act out the chant as if they were the pumpkin rolling around.
5. 5 Little Pumpkins. Children enjoy the fun movements to this counting rhyme.
These songs and chants are a wonderful way to celebrate Halloween with young children. Since your child will continue to process the holiday long after it’s over, continue singing these songs together for weeks to come.
