After reading about a Halloween bus, here are some verses to go with the tune The Wheels on the Bus. Use typical Halloween characters and name some costumes kids might wear.

The witches on the bus go cackle, cackle, cackle,
Cackle, cackle, cackle,
Cackle, cackle, cackle.
The witches on the bus go cackle, cackle, cackle,
On the Halloween Bus.

The ghosts on the bus go boo, boo, boo….
On the Halloween bus.

The cats on the bus go meow, meow, meow…
On the Halloween bus.

The pirates on the bus go Arr, Arr, Arr…..
On the Halloween bus.

The vampires on the bus go Aah, aah, aah…
On the Halloween bus.

The skeletons on the bus go rattle, rattle, rattle…
On the Halloween bus.

The kids on the bus go Trick or Treat…
On the Halloween bus.

Move like these characters. Add zombies, monsters, mummies, super heroes, and anything else. If you need a quiet verse at the end, be pumpkins on the bus and make a really wide and silent grin.

Another kids Halloween action song isn’t exactly a song, but it uses one and makes a fun game. Use the tune Where is Thumbkin (Frere Jacques) and sing Where is Pumpkin? Either inside the house or outside in a specific area, kids can play hide and seek. Of course, the one looking is the one singing and the one hiding is oh so quiet and still. When found, kids get to shout Boo!

Where is pumpkin? Where is pumpkin?
Are you in here? Are you in here?
I’ll keep looking, till I find you.
Where are you? Where are you?

When adults are the ones looking, we can be surprised and scared when we find them.
