Done as a chant or sung. 

5 Little Pumpkins sititng on a gate (sign for sit)

The first one says "Oh my it's getting late!"(pick up and put down 1st pumpkin prop then point to watch)

Second one said there are witches in the air (pick up and put down 2nd pumpkin prop then swirl arms from one side to the other)

The 3rd one said "but we don't care" (pick up and put down 3rd pumpkin prop then wave pointer finger back and forth)

The 4th one said let's run, and run, and run (pick up and put down 4th pumpkin prop then move arms in a running motion, just like a chug-a-chug-a motion for a train)

The 5th one said "I'm ready for some fun" (pick up and put down 5th pumpkin prop then put both thumbs up and point them toward chest)

OO-Oo went the wind (open arms out wide) And out went the light (clap on 'out' ) 

And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight (throw pumkin props in the air)
