I love PUMPKINS, a fun symbol of Fall

and all it's warmth (pumpkin pie)

and humor (jack-o-lanterns).

My favorite Fall pumpkin chant with young children is a lap bounce:

Pumpkin, Pumpkin, sitting on the wall (bounce child on lap)

Pumpkin, Pumpkin, tip and fall, (bounce, then gently let them tip over and fall)

Pumpkin, Pumpkin, rolling down the street, (Roll hands, or roll on floor)

Pumpkin, Pumpkin... Trick or Treat! ( Hide face with hands, then pop out!)

** From "A Year of Celebration..." by Theodosia Sideropolous Spewok (recommended!)

Simulated pumpkin carving site

No sharp utensils / stencils needed. Use the digital knife to carve any shape you'd like, then watch it glow and hear the sound of hoot owls. Watch out... it's addictive.
