All the time I was working on the cake, I was singing this childhood song to myself. I was really surprised that I remembered the words AND the little hand movements that went with it ! Did you sing this one as a child?
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, (Hold your hands up)I know there were a bunch of other songs we sang each Fall. I just can't remember them at the moment.
The first one said "oh my its getting late," (Put your hands on cheeks)
The second one said "there's a chill in the air," (Hug yourself)
The third one said "but we don't care," (Shrug your shoulders)
The fourth one said "we're ready for some fun," (Jump)
The fifth one said "lets run, run, run," (Run in place)
So woo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight (Sit down).
Do you remember any other Autumn songs you sang as children? Have you taught them to your little ones, yet?
