Purple People Eater Song
(original author: unknown)
I was walking in the jungle one fine day,
When I saw a purple people eater come my way.
He took me and he put me in a great big pot,
Man oh man, was it ever hot!
We’re makin’ a purple stew,
Whip-a, whip-a, whip-a.
Makin’ a purple stew,
Scooby, dooby, dooby doo.
With purple potatoes, and purple tomatoes,
(Child’s name), (child’s name) and (child’s name) too!
When you call the children’s names during this circle time activity, have them crouch down into a ball in the middle of the circle (the pot).
Continue the song until the entire class is in the “pot”, calling 4-5 names at a time if necessary depending on the size of your class.
Once all the children are in the pot ask them if they can find the purple eater in or under different areas in the room.
When they say no, then, tell them to close their eyes and ask the purple people eater to play his song.
When all their eyes are closed and they “ask”, play the purple people eater song, allow them to dance in the pot with their purple people eater puppets.
You can print off a picture of the purple people eater that the children can color and paste on popsicle sticks as their own puppet.
**The picture is available in our coloring pages section and will be named "purple people eater". Check the video out to the left for examples of this preschool song which can be used during preschool circle time activities like this one with the children.
