Witch’s Cauldron Halloween Action Song
Witch’s cauldron, (cup hands)
Witch’s cat, (make whiskers with fingers)
Witch’s broomstick, (make stick one arm & brush with the hand)
Witch’s bat, (flap hands like a bat)
Fly over here, (flap hands one way)
Fly over there, (flap hands other way)
Abra- ca- dab-ra! (mime a spell with fingers)
Now you disappear! ( clap hands together loudly)
Witch’s wand, and (wave imaginary wand)
Witch’s spell, (make a spell)
Witch’s nose, and (gesture big nose!)
Witch’s smell! (hold nose like a pong!)
Fly in the dark, (fly arms one way)
At the dead of night, (fly arms the other way)
If you see her, (hand over eyes to search)
She’ll give you such a fright! (hold up both hands in pretend fright!)
[Verse 1 was written by Sue Nicholls from ‘Bobby Shaftoe Clap Your Hands’ published by A&C Black in 1992 – now Harper Collins]
This simple Halloween action song is usually just sung as a finger rhyme, with the actions as described in brackets above. But of course it can be sung at any time during the build up to Halloween, and it’s so much more fun if everyone gets dressed up as little witches first!
If you are planning to do some Halloweeny arts and crafts, it is just the thing to get the creative juices flowing and inspire some lovely spooky paintings!
