Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate (hold up 5 fingers)
The first one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late.” (put hands on cheeks)
The second one said, “There are witches in the air.” (shade eyes and look)
The third one said, “But we don’t care.” (shake finger side to side)
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.” (move arms like running)
The fifth one said, “I’m ready for some fun.” (punch fist into air)
Then oooooh went the wind and out went the lights. (wave hands and clap them)
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight. (roll arms)

Little Ghost
Little ghost, little ghost flying through the air (wave arms)
Little ghost, little ghost tickling my hair (hands on head)
Little ghost, little ghost flying way down low (lower arms)
Little ghost, little ghost tickling my toe (touch feet)
Little ghost, little ghost circling all around (wave arms)
Little ghost, little ghost please sit down

Tickle Monster Flannel Board

I came across this on Thrive After Three and knew I had to make it! I have several story time kids that are obsessed with this book (to the point where I almost couldn’t check it out in time for the program). This book makes an amazing flannel board.
