Five Little Pumpkins with Hand Gestures

As promised yesterday, here are the hand motions that go with Five Little Pumpkins

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins (Hold up all 5 fingers)
Sitting on a gate
The first one said,
“Oh, my, it’s getting late!” (Point to wrist like checking the time)
The second one said,
“There are witches in the air!” (Point up and across, like pointing to the witches flying)
The third one said,
“But we don’t care!” (Shake head like saying “no”)
The fourth one said,
“Let’s run and run and run!” (Move arms like you’re running)
The fifth one said,
“I’m ready for some fun!” (A big smile)
OOOOOOOH, went the wind
And OUT went the light (Clap on “out”)
And the five little pumpkins (Hold up five fingers again)
Rolled out of sight. (Roll hands, one over the other)
