Some of these may be familiar to you, some of them just have new words to a familiar tune. Whichever it is, the kids will love these new and not-so-new Halloween songs and poems.
CRISS CROSS APPLESAUCE
Criss, cross (draw and X on baby’s back)
Applesauce (pat baby’s shoulders in rhythm to the beat.)
Spiders crawling up your back (walk fingers in a tickly fashion up your baby’s back)
Tight squeeze (give a hug)
Cool breeze. (blow gently on baby’s neck)
And now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle baby all over)
FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE
The first one said, "Oh, my it's getting late"
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "But we don't care."
The fourth one said, "Let's run, let's run!"
The fifth one said, "Isn't Halloween fun?"
Then Woooooo went the wind, And out went the lights.
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
