Pumpkin Storytime

It's been a while since I did a pumpkin storytime because I am usually doing a letter of the week--I'd be about at F right now.  So I was excited to an autumn storytime featuring pumpkins!

Trouble Pumpkin by Jan Thomas


5 Little Pumpkins
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The 1st one said, "Oh, my! It's getting late!"
The 2nd one said, "There's a chill in the air!"
The 3rd one said, "But we don't care!"
The 4th one said, "We're ready for some fun!"
The 5th one said, "Let's run, run, run!"
Then WHOOSH! went the wind
And OUT went the lights
And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

On Our Way to the Pumpkin Patch
(sung to: Here we go 'round the Mulberry Bush)

Here we go marching down the road, down the road, down the road
Here we go marching down the road on the way to the pumpkin patch!

Additional verses:
Here we go running...
Here we go tiptoeing...
Here we go jumping...
Here we go stomping...

Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater
Had a wife, but couldn't keep her
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.
