Every month the song/dance/activity will change. Many of the songs will be from my Recordings. Please print the page and do the activity with your child. Teachers may print the page to use with their classes. If you have questions, Contact Me.

Listen to the whole song on H.U.M. – All Year Long! or hear it here:
Don't sit still for this one! Hop, run in place, flap your wings and gobble gobble! When it says "hide from the farmer", scrunch down and hide your eyes. Grown-ups participating can "catch" the little turkeys after "before he catches you!" Do this one over and over – or bring it to your Thanksgiving celebration to work off some of that STUFFING! Goes great with "The Turkey Pokey"–"put your wing in, put your wing out", etc.
Do the turkey hop: Hop, Hop,
Spoken: Did he catch you? No? Let's do it again!
Age Range: 2 - 6 years old
Purpose: Good ol' Thanksgiving fun, not to mention gross motor skills, listen and do, and identification of "turkey parts!"
