Pumpkin Pie is Here (To the tune: The Farmer in the Dell)

Pumpkin pie is here, pumpkin pie is here, hi ho what do you know?

Whipped cream brings the fork, whipped cream brings the fork, hi ho what do you know? |
Whipped cream brings the fork.
The fork brings the bite, the fork brings the bite, hi ho what do you know?

Baking an Apple Pie (To the tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)

This is the way we pick the apples, 
Pick the apples, pick the apples.  
This is the way we pick the apples 
On an autumn day. 
This is the way we wash the apples… 
This is the way we slice the apples…. 
This is the way we add the cinnamon… 
This is the way we roll the dough… 
This is the way we bake the pie… 
This is the way we eat the pie… 
On an autumn day!

Pre-Literacy Tip: Learn and Bond Together with Pie

Making pie is delicious fun for children of all ages. Making a pie with your young child is a bonding activity as they are learning – developing a sense of sequence in their thinking as well as the physical handling of pie process – rolling out dough, stirring in sugar and spice, pouring the filling into the pie and watching (and smelling) it bake in the oven. Very young children can help crush graham crackers (in a plastic bag) to make graham cracker crust or help pour instant pudding mix into a bowl then stirring in the milk to watch the pudding thicken and later, help to spread whipped cream on top. Babies can see you make a pie and hear you tell them the story of how you make it. It’s important to have step stool for children to see or a high chair for baby to watch.  Afterward, the good taste of pie will be even more satisfying knowing you made it together and now have that story to tell!
