Makes a great play. Props: jack o'lantern, candle, cookie jar, spider, broom, witch's hat, and a black cat. Search for Boo all over the room.
Where is Baby's Pumpkin? by Karen Katz is also good.
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.
I like to do this as a puppet show with 5 pumpkins, tipping them off the stage at the end.
