Finger Play Fun Day: Oh Once I Had a Pumpkin!

 Finger Play Fun Day:  Oh, Once I Had a Pumpkin photo
Pumpkin and Jack-o-Lantern Finger Play for Halloween
Fall has arrived and Halloween is just around the corner!

Today's finger play "Oh, Once I Had a Pumpkin," is a wonderful song about turning a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. 

To make the song even more fun, I made a simple pumpkin out of orange felt.  I also cut out 3 black triangles for 2 eyes and a nose and a funny mouth with teeth cut out. 

I have been singing this in all of my classes for the last few weeks and the children love helping me make the jack-o-lantern.  They take turns putting on the eyes, nose and mouth and then laugh at the funny face they made! 

I hope you all enjoy this song!
