Yesterday, my husband and I decided to carve some pumpkins to get into the Halloween spirit. It was so much fun! I finally carved a real pattern, and I was so proud of myself for my cute little bat cat. After we finished and put the lights underneath our pumpkins, I suddenly felt inspired. I was thinking, "I should write a song about a Jack-O-Lantern for the kids next week in sessions." I thought about what goals I wanted to work on and instantly I thought of passing and socialization. This is always a big one in the school groups. And the product of this inspiration was, "Pass the Pumpkin". It is a spooky little tune talking about the different faces that can be carved into a pumpkin and how Jack sits there at night waiting for everybody. The chorus says, "Pass the pumpkin....and don't let him land on you." This throws some extra fun into the kids trying not to have the pumpkin land on them during this phrase. I decided I am going to have them pass a real pumpkin. The small kind of course, but I figured that would be really fun for them to see it in real life rather than just a laminated piece of paper. I hope you enjoy this tune and feel free to download it for your own use! Please leave comments below if you have any other ideas in which this song could be used.
