This easy halloween counting song is perfect for three to five year olds. It combines a good bit of counting practice with just the right level of halloween frights for little ones.
I sing this song to the tune of ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ because the kids can pick it up so easily, but it works just as well as a chant.
Make sure everyone is practicing the counting on their fingers throughout the song and encourage them all to join in with the actions which can get a bit noisy by the end!
Easy Halloween Counting Song
One little witch in a pointed hat, (make a pointy hat with both hands)
Two little ghosts and three little cats, (count with fingers)
Four little monsters with yellow fangs (scary face with 2 fingers curled by mouth)
A creaky door that always bangs, (clap hands loudly)
Five little skeletons, rattling their bones, (count 5 and wiggle your bones!)
Six little gremlins and seven little gnomes, (count with fingers)
Eight hairy spiders and nine flapping bats, (make spiders by hooking thumbs and wiggling fingers, and flap your hands for bats)
And ten fat pumpkins filled with rats! arghhhh! (count 10 and scream!)
