“Jack-o’-Lantern,” Friend, Oct. 1996, 30–31


I’m a jack-o’-lantern

Sitting on the ground.

(Cross your legs and sit.)

I’m made from a pumpkin

Big and round.

(Raise arms above head and make a circle with your arms.)

I have two squinty eyes,

((Point to your eyes.)

A smooth and orange chin;

(Rub one hand under your chin.)

But all I ever do is

Sit and grin.

(Put a finger to each side of your mouth and stretch it into a big grin.)
