Halloween Rhymes

Today at Circle Time, we learned a few rhymes and songs featuring Halloween themes. These include: Big Black Cat, Hoot Owl, and Big and Scary Eyes. Read on to learn the words to these rhymes and songs:

Here are some fun Halloween rhymes and songs to do with children:

Big Black Cat

(To the tune of Where Is Thumbkin?
Creeping, creeping,
Creeping, creeping
Big Black Cat,
Big Black Cat.
Sneaking 'round the corners,
Sneaking 'round the corners,
Pit, pit, pat.
Pit, pit, pat.
(Note: it's fun to act this song out. Just make your hands creep along like a cat, then flatten them out to pit, pit pat.)

Big and Scary Eyes

See my big and scary eyes,
Watch out for the big surprise,
(Directions: cup your thumbs and index fingers around your eyes, then sweep them to the side as you say BOO!).

Hoot Owl

Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
Up in your tree.
Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
What do you see?
I see a black cat running by me!
That's what I see way up in my tree.
Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
Up in your tree.
Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
What do you see?
I see a big pumpkin rolling by me!
That's what I see way up in my tree.
Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
Up in your tree.
Hoot Owl, Hoot Owl
What do you see?
I see a black spider crawling by me!
That's what I see way up in my tree.
(Directions: hoot each time you say Hoot Owl, point upwards when you say up in your tree, circle your eyes when you say what do you see, then act out with your fingers each of the things that the owl sees -- running cat, rolling pumpkin and crawling spider).

Pumpkin, Pumpkin

Pumpkin, pumpkin
Turn around.
Pumpkin, pumpkin
Touch the ground.
Pumpkin, pumpkin
Stomp your feet.
Pumpkin, pumpkin
Trick or treat!
(Directions: hold arms at side in semi-circle shape to make yourself a pumpkin. Then follow the directions in the rhyme. For the last line, bend down low and then pop up as you say Trick or treat!
