To set up this simple fingerplay activity, you'll need:

I took an orange pipe cleaner and wound each one over one of my fingers.  I twisted a green "stem" to each pumpkin and my toddler and preschooler were ready to count to five with this sweet Halloween poem.

Place a pumpkin on each of your child's fingers and recite the poem together!

As you read through the poem and one of the pumpkins runs off, take the a pipe cleaner pumpkin off your finger.  Continue until all the pumpkins have "rolled out of sight."

Or you could do this activity in reverse and add a pipe cleaner pumpkin to each finger as you recite the poem.  

Either way, this fingerplay is a great way to learn and play with your child today!!
