Bethany Roberts' Thanksgiving Fun for Kids: Turkey Poems 





PILGRIM POEMS 

FIVE PILGRIMS

Five Pilgrims fish in the morn.
(pretend to fish)

Five Indians help them plant corn.
(pretend to plant)

The Indians bring the corn
(hold up right hand)

The Pilgrims bring the meat.
(hold up left hand)

Ten new friends sit down to eat.
(Fold hands together)

PILGRIM

The brave little pilgrim
Went looking for a bear.
He looked in the woods
He looked everywhere.
The brave little pilgrim
Found a big brown bear.
He ran like a rabbit
OH!  What a scare!

THE PILGRIMS CAME

The Pilgrims came across the sea,
and never thought of you and me.
And yet it's very strange the way
we think of them Thanksgiving Day.

We tell their story, old and true,
of how they sailed across the blue,
found a new land to be free,
and built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale
of how they bravely turned the sail,
and journeyed many a day and night,
to worship God as they thought right.

HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!
