Five Little Pumpkins...

Can you believe we've never read the Five Little Pumpkins before?

I decided not to let another year pass without reading this book and added it to our story time this week.

Of course, we needed to have a little bit of fun with it. So, I made jack-o-lantern finger puppets.

I simply drew five pumpkins on card stock and cut them out.

The circles on the bottom are finger holes.

If you don't want to draw your own, there are plenty of clipart pumpkins you can enlarge, print and cut out.

Meet four of the five little pumpkins.

They're a wee bit silly and tend to giggle a lot.

These two are good friends who like to hide and scare each other.

Catch me if you can!

If you haven't picked up the Five Little Pumpkins, you should. It's perfect for even the smallest child and it's even more fun when you have your own little pumpkins to play with.

If you want more ideas for activities to do with this book, Toddler Approved has a great post about it here.


  1. Neat idea about using paper pumpkins. I have never seen it done that way!

  2. Cute! I've done paper pumpkins before, but never like that. Normally we just put them around the fingers. Though, to be honest, normally my students just cut out shapes and hold them up. I do LOVE the 5 little pumpkins though! I loved it so much I changed it to use it when I taught family!
