Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

He is big and fat and he (Spread arms wide.)
Gobble, gobble, gobbles. (Wiggle from side to side with hands on hips.)
He spreads his tail and he (Fan arms behind you.)
Gobble, gobble, gobbles. (Wiggle from side to side with hands on hips.)
But when Thanksgiving Day is here, (Point finger.)
Then it’s our turn to
GOBBLE! GOBBLE! GOBBLE! (Pretend to spoon food in your mouth!)

Mr. Turkey and Mr. Duck

Mr. Turkey went for (Start with hands behind your back.)
A walk one day (Bring right thumb out in front of you.)
In the very best
Of weather.
He met Mr. Duck (Bring left thumb out in front.)
Along the way
And they talked (Have thumbs look at each other.)
“Gobble, gobble, gobble.” (Wiggle right thumb.)
“Quack, quack, quack.” (Wiggle left thumb.)
“Good-bye.” (Bow right thumb.)
“Good-bye.” (Bow left thumb.)
And they both walked back! (Wiggle thumbs behind your back.)

Turkey Soup 

Make turkeys from lunch sacks by making strips from the middle of the bag to the end as shown. Have children paint or color the strips. Cut on the lines to make tail feathers. Fill a zip baggie with 1 cup rice. Put it in the bag. Twist the sack around the bag of rice to make the body. Add a head and dangly feet. Attach the recipe for turkey and rice soup and send home for a table decoration.
