Pumpkins Fall Storytime Songs and Crafts

Pumpkins, leaves, and rain… oh, my!


Fall is certainly upon us!

Looking to put together some fall fun for your community’s youngest residents? Plan an exciting story time and craft on a very small budget. Check out these great crafts, books, and rhymes for fall!

 

Songs

 

Everyone loves these simple chants and songs. Sing along with the kids and get them moving!

 

**TIP** Use simple props like scarves or finger puppets, or just use your hands and arms to lead the children in song.

 

Here are some lovely librarians singing the classic fall favorite: the Five Little Pumpkins song.

 

 

Here’s another easy to follow along Pumpkin chant.

 

This song uses some small scarves to highlight the changing seasons, and sometimes unpredictable weather!

 


This song even incorporates sign language into the hand motions to help children become more literate in using hand signs to communicate!

 

Big thank you to Dana and Lindsey. They are the children’s librarian duo behind the Jbrary site where I found these songs. It’s packed full of fantastic resources!

 

Books

 

Take advantage of your local library to hunt down the perfect fall reads with everyone’s favorite: Pumpkins!

 

Here are some of our top titles collected by a former children’s librarian. You can check out her long list of fall-themed children’s books over on Rebecca’s blog - Sturdy for Common Things.

  • Sophie’s Squash by Pat Zietlow Miller, illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf
