Bethany Roberts' Thanksgiving Fun for Kids: Thanksgiving Poems and Songs



Thanksgiving dinner

At Grandma's House
author unknown

I like the taste of turkey
Any time throughout the year
But it never
seems to taste as good
As when Thanksgiving's here.

Could be it's all the trimmings
That are cooked with it to eat-
But I think it's
eating at Grandma's house
That makes it such a treat!

Thanksgiving turkey

author unknown

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway~
Thanksgiving comes again!

Thanksgiving dinner

author unknown
(sung to Frere Jacques)

Turkey dinner, turkey dinner,
Gather round, gather round,
Who will get the drumstick,
Yummy, yummy drumstick,
All sit down, all sit down.

Cornbread muffins, chestnut stuffing,
Pudding pie, one foot high,
All of us were thinner, til we came to dinner,
Me, oh, my, me, oh, my!
