I’m not sure why, but my kids really like the following two Halloween finger-plays:
Five Little Ghosts
(I couldn’t find the Ghost one on the web, but you sing it to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”. You say “Five little ghosts say “boo”, five little ghosts say “boo”, five little ghosts say “boo” and then one flew away.” Continue the song by subtracting one number each verse until the ghosts are all gone.)
I made these really simple glove puppets for them to play with to go along with the finger-plays.
All that I did was cut out 5 little pumpkins and 5 little ghosts out of felt and hot-glued them to a pair of gloves that I never use. A very fast and easy project that your kids are sure to enjoy!
