Kawaii Halloween!

I love Halloween. I'm lucky to live in an area where people don't get too stressed about it. I usually try to keep my toddler storytimes pretty low on the devil worshiping, anyways...

Here are my favorite Halloween rhymes with flannel board felty things:

Pumpkin, Pumpkin
Pumpkin, pumpkin,
round and fat.
hold out hands to show how big 
Turns into a jack o lantern ....
 Just like that! 

The next one is just like Two Little Blackbirds but instead it is:
 Two Little Black Bats
Two little black bats hanging in a tree, 
put one fingers on each knee
One named "Boo!" and one named "Wheeeeee!"
Say "Boo!" like you mean it and draw out the "Wheeeeeee!"
Fly away, Boo!
flap one finger behind your back
Fly away, Wheeeeee!

flap other finger behind back
Come back, Boo! 

bring it back
Come back, Wheeeeee!

bring back other one
Two little black bats hanging in a tree,
One named "Boo!" and one named "Wheeeeee!"

Here is a simple count down rhyme with some ghosts:
Five Little Ghosts
Five little ghosts flying through the door,
One went home and that left four.

Four little ghosts spooky as can be,
Another went home and that left three.

Three little ghosts dripping weird goo,
Another went home and that left two.

Two little ghosts, having lots of fun,
Another went home and that left one.

One little ghost, now all alone,
He got so lonely, he flew back home.

I'm very proud of this (Un)Lucky Cat version of
"Teddy Bear Teddy Bear" converted for Halloween:
 Black Cat, Black Cat
Black cat, black cat, turn around,
Black cat, black cat, touch the ground.

Black cat, black cat, show your shoe,

stick out foot
Black cat, black cat, I love you. 
Give self hug

Black cat, black cat, bend your knees,
Black cat, black cat, sway in the breeze.

Black cat, black cat, sit back down,
Black cat, black cat, not a sound.

Lastly, here are some pumpkins, I'm not sure how many...
Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The 1st one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
The 2nd one said, “There are witches in the air”
The 3rd one said, “We don’t care!”
The 4th one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
The 5th one said, “We’re ready for some fun!”
Then "WHOOOOOOO" went the wind
And OUT (loud clap) went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
roll hands
