Pumpkin Poop Poem

Updated on October 10, 2013

Pumpkin Poop, Ghost Poop and Scarecrow Poop Make Fun Halloween Treats

I'm not sure when the idea of turning candy into funny "poop treats" by adding a silly poem became popular, but these days it's all the rage during the holidays. Of course there's reindeer poop during Christmas (and even a song to go with it!), but did you know there's also a pumpkin poop poem for Halloween, as well as one for ghost poop and scarecrow poop? Yep. So if you've got young kids and don't know what the heck I'm talking about, keep reading for a fun and easy way to make Halloween goodies your kids will love.

The Most Common Pumpkin Poop Poem

Add it to a bag of candy corn and you've got a silly treat kids will love

So, parents, the basic idea behind "poop treats" is that you fill a Ziploc-type bag with some form of candy, add a silly poem that explains the "droppings" inside the bag, and then give it to someone else as a gag gift. Kids think it's hysterically funny. And parents love it because it's easy.

If you struggle to keep up with the "Martha Stewart" moms in your kids' class, the ones who always bake the most incredible cupcakes and cookies and other goodies while you rush to the store to buy something, you'll do just great with pumpkin poop because all you need is the ability to copy a poem onto a piece of paper and stick it to a bag. You can do that, right? Sure, you can!

The following is the most common pumpkin poop poem I found on the web. I've yet to see someone claim authorship of the poem, but I'd be happy to attribute this to the original author, if such a person can be found. Email me if you know who wrote this!

But while we're waiting for the real "pumpkin poop poem" author to please stand up, here are the instructions for turning plain candy corn into "pumpkin poop."

1. Fill plastic sandwich bags with candy corn. Traditional yellow and orange corn is fine because it is coming out of the rear end of a bright orange pumpkin, but if you can find Brach's Milk Maid Caramel Chocolate Candy Corn, your kids might find the dark brown color even funnier.

2. Copy the poem below (or one of the variations farther down the page) onto 4x6 index cards or save the handwriting and use your computer to print multiple copies of the poem on one sheet of paper and then cut the paper to fit the bags.

3. Attach the pumpkin poop poem to the bags.

4. Share and enjoy!

Pumpkin Poop Poem

I started to carve a pumpkin

with my carving knife and scoop

But the pumpkin got so scared

He took a little poop!

It looked so cute and funny

Just like a candy treat

So I'm sharing it with you now

Because you are so sweet!

Pumpkin Poop Poem #2

I put my pumpkin out at night.

The ghosts and ghouls gave him a fright.

He got so scared he took a poop.

I went out and got it with a scoop.

It tastes just like a candy treat.

Try it - pumpkin poop is sweet!

Scarecrow, Pumpkin or Ghost Poop

If you'd like to mix up your Halloween treat bags, you could make some "ghost poop" with white chocolate chips, white breath mints or mini marshmallows, or "scarecrow poop" with Reese's Pieces or candy corn. Then attach one of the poems below and select ONE of the creatures (scarecrow, pumpkin OR ghost, not all of them as written below).

I hear that you've been playing tricks,

So listen, here's the scoop.

I've run out of tasty candy treats,

So instead you get Scarecrow/Pumpkin/Ghost Poop!!

It's All Hallows Eve,

So listen - here's the scoop!

Whether you think it's a trick or a treat,

Here's some Scarecrow/Pumpkin/Ghost Poop!

Fall is here, 'n there's a nip in the air.

But you don't have to sink to despair!

To have a good laugh, here's the scoop,

I'm giving you some Scarecrow/Pumpkin/Ghost poop!
