Yesterday, we decided to have a little turkey fun. We made puppets by cutting and coloring a turkey, then stapling it onto a paper plate. Cut another paper plate in half and staple along the edge onto the top half of the other plate. An easy puppet. Sorry my turkey copy is from a copyrighted book that I cannot find right now. If you are interested in making one, I did find a few cute turkey coloring pages online. You could try this turkey or this cute guy or this more traditional turkey.
After making your turkey, try acting out these fun little poems with your puppet.
(sing to the tune of "All Around the Mullberry Bush")
A turkey is a funny bird.
His head goes wobble, wobble.
All he knows is just one word.
It's gobble, gobble!
(Chant to "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear")
Turkey, turkey, turn around.
Turkey, turkey, peck the ground.
Turkey, turkey, show your wing.
Turkey, turkey, can you sing?
gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble
Turkey, turkey, go upstairs.
Turkey, turkey, say your prayers.
Turkey, turkey, turn out the light.
Turkey, turkey, say goodnight.
