Five Little Pumpkins Poem
The first time I heard the Five Little Pumpkins poem was during a story time at the library. The librarian had the cutest finger puppets and the kids really enjoyed it. As a result, I fell in love with this fun pumpkin poem. Also, find the board book here.
Eventually, that pumpkin poem from story time, inspired this five little pumpkins bag topper. Finally, for those of you unfamiliar with, Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate here is the poem:
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 we don’t care.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run!”
The fifth one said, “I’m ready for some fun!”
Oooooooh, went the wind and out went the lights
and the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
Five Little Pumpkins Printable
The Five Little Pumpkins printable front is decorated with cute little pumpkin silhouettes. Each pumpkin has a conversation bubble with a coordinating line from the poem.
The back of the Five Little Pumpkin bag topper is black and white polka-dot.
This is black and white design, therefore making it friendly for school printing and copying. The Five Little Pumpkin printable bag topper is laid out with two printing to a page, consequently using less paper.
