7 Fun Halloween Poems for Preschoolers

Are you looking for fun ways to interact with your preschooler grandchild this Halloween? I was very excited when I received these 7 Halloween poems for preschoolers from one of Nana’s Corner subscribers.  They are now poems my granddaughter, Emily, and I have fun reciting together.

Learning new Halloween poems and songs is a great way to interact with preschoolers. Emily is a preschooler who attends a wonderful nursery school. One of her favorite preschool activities is learning new songs as part of the curriculum’s current theme.

Learning preschool themed poems and songs not only increases vocabulary, it is an activity that also teaches colors, seasons, alphabet and more. I continue to be amazed on how easily she can recall the poems and songs from memory!

1. Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
First one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
Second one said, “there are witches in the air!”
Third one said, “But we don’t care!”
Fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
Fifth one said, “I’m ready for some fun.”
Oooooooooooooh went the wind.
Out went the light.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

2. Jack o’ Faces

I am Jack o’ Happy,
I am Jack o’ Sad.
Now you see me sleepy,
Now you see me mad!
Here I am in pieces small,
But in a pie I am best of all!

3. Happy Halloween!

White ghost, white ghost, what do you see?
I see a black bat looking at me.
Black bat, black bat, what do you see?
I see a green skeleton looking at me.
I see a brown owl looking at me.
Brown owl, brown owl, what do you see?
I see a red mask looking at me.
Red mask, red mask, what do you see?
I see a black cat looking at me.
Black cat, black cat, what do you see?
I see a jack-o-lantern looking at me!
Happy Halloween!

4. Pumpkin, Pumpkin

Pumpkin, pumpkin, I’ve been thinking,
You’re the finest one I’ve seen,
Soon you’ll be a jack-o-lantern
All lit up for Halloween.

5. Halloween is Almost Here

Halloween is almost here
and I can hardly wait.
Halloween is almost here
and I can hardly wait.
When it’s time to trick-or-treat,
we’ll get lots of things to eat,
Halloween is almost here
and I can hardly wait.

6. Fly Little Bats

Fly, fly, fly little bats,
Fly, fly, fly little bats,
Fly, fly, fly little bats,
Halloween is here!

Crawl, crawl, crawl little spiders,
Crawl, crawl, crawl little spiders,
Crawl, crawl, crawl little spiders,
Halloween is here!

Stomp, stomp, stomp little monsters,
Stomp, stomp, stomp little monsters,
Stomp, stomp, stomp little monsters,
Halloween is here!

Creep, creep, creep little cats,
Creep, creep, creep little cats,
Creep, creep, creep little cats,
Halloween is here!

Dance, dance, dance little skeletons,
Dance, dance, dance little skeletons,
Dance, dance, dance little skeletons,
Halloween is here!

Float, float, float little ghosts,
Float, float, float little ghosts,
Float, float, float little ghosts,
Halloween is here!

(sung to Ten Little Indians)

7. It’s October!

It’s October and it’s time to have some fun. Yee-ha!
It’s October and it’s time to have some fun. Yee-ha!
Pickin’ apples up so high
For a fresh-baked apple pie.
It’s October and it’s time to have some fun. Yee-ha!

Oh, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch. Yee-ha!
Yes, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch. Yee-ha!
To the patch to choose a pumpkin,
Dressed up like a country bumpkin.
Oh, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch. Yee-ha!

We will all go trick-or-treatin’ Halloween. Yee-ha!
We will all go trick-or-treatin’ Halloween. Yee-ha!
Saying “Boos!” to those we meet,
Getting lots of things to eat.
We will all go trick-or-treatin’ Halloween, Yee-ha!

(sung to the tune She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain)
