The "Five Little Pumpkins" story has been repeated numerous times over the past few weeks in our house. Seriously....like every other minute.
So I decided to just enjoy it and Anna and I made a little picture to go along with our story.
I drew some pumpkin shapes onto a piece of paper and she drew some faces and colored in her pumpkins.
While she colored away, I cut out a "gate" for our pumpkins to sit on. Then Anna colored some grass, sky and a moon on our picture. And of course...it just had to have a witch (please excuse my awful representation of a witch!)
Then we told the story using the pumpkins!
Anna loved this! We've done this little activity too many times to count! Hurry up Halloween!! :)
And in case you don't know the Five Little Pumpkins, here's our version...
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first pumpkin said, "Oh my, it's getting late."
The second pumpkin said "There are witches in the air."
The third one said "But we don't care."
The fourth one said "Let's run and run and run"
The fifth one said "I'm ready for some fun"
Then whoosh wind went the wind
And out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight
