  • Staple 2 pieces of black paper together on the short side of the paper to make approximately a 17×11 piece of paper.
  • Staple the song lyrics to the top of the paper.
  • Print out the pumpkin template on orange paper. Print out the gate and pumpkin stem template on brown paper. Print out the song lyrics on white paper. The template is available at: https://alittlepinchofperfect.com/5-little-pumpkins-flap-book-craft-and-free-template/
  • Have your child cut out the song lyrics, pumpkins, gate pieces, and stems. Have your child assemble the gate and glue it down on the black paper. Make sure they leave room for the pumpkins to sit on top of the gate and room for the gate posts below the long gate plank.
  • Have your child glue the pumpkins to the top of the gate. Depending on which set you use you will need to help make sure they are glued in order. The set without the jack-o-lantern faces has numbers inside so make sure they are glued down in order to help kids practice number recognition as they sing the song. Once they are glued down, kids can add faces to their jack-o-lanterns.
  • If you used the set with the jack-o-lantern faces printed on the pumpkins have your child open each pumpkin and glue the numbers in order. Start with the first pumpkin on the left and glue the number 1 and so forth.
