It is Almost Halloween

"It is Almost Halloween" is a children's song, sung to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star".

It is almost Halloween,
So let's all draw a spooky scene
Like ghosts floating through the air
Or a vampire (if you dare!).
It is almost Halloween,
So let's all draw a spooky scene!

Bonus activity: Have children suggest other spooky scenes to draw and list them on the blackboard, such as:
a haunted house
a witch flying across the moon
a mummy
a scary-faced pumpkin,
then give children crayons and paper and let them choose a spooky scene to draw.
