Thanksgiving Puppet and Songs

If you're looking for some fun Thanksgiving songs to sing with your littles, look no further! 
A couple of years ago I made these turkey finger puppets to use during singing time. The kids are able to use their fingers as the legs for the turkeys and make the little turkeys run.
Here we are at the carpet getting ready to sing some fun Thanksgiving related songs using our turkey finger puppets. Oh my goodness, look at these cuties! Some of their faces are cracking me up. We're still working on looking at the camera. Hahaha.
A friend of mine gave me the puppets to copy. To make your own you could use these finger puppets from dinkycow.com.  (The finger holes should be about 3/4 of an inch wide. Adjust as necessary.) You could also use turkey popsicle stick puppets or turkey finger puppets. 
Here are a few songs that are easy to sing to celebrate this fun day.
Gobble-gobble Says the Bird
(To the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It")
Gobble-gobble, gobble-gobble says the bird.
Gobble-gobble, gobble-gobble says the bird.
Mr. Turkey gobble-gobbles,
And his feet go wobble-wobble.
Gobble-gobble, gobble-gobble says the bird.
Turkey, Turkey
(To the tune of "Twinkle Little Star")
Turkey, turkey, look at you!
Please be careful what you do.
Thanksgiving Day is almost here.
We eat turkey every year.
Go and hide out in the woods,
 We'll eat pizza, as we should.

Mr. Turkey
(To the tune of "Frere Jacques")
Mr. Turkey, Mr. Turkey,
Run away! Run away!
If you are not careful,
You will be a mouthful,
Thanksgiving day, Thanksgiving day.
