Have an adult cut the rounded end off of one side of a few popsicle sticks.
Glue the popsicle sticks to the black construction paper so that they are in a row. This is your gate.
Pick out 5 craft foam pumpkins and glue or stick them to the construction paper so that they sit on the gate.
If you like, cut a circle out of yellow construction paper to make a full moon for your Halloween night. This was our daughter's idea!
Here are the lyrics (sing/chant to tune of 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed):
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate:
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late."
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "But I don't care."
The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run."
"Wooooooo" went the wind,
And out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
