When my son was in kindergarten, he came home one day in November singing the cutest Thanksgiving Song.  He sang “I Don’t Want To Eat The Turkey”, with so much exuberance and gusto that it has stuck in all of our heads as a Thanksgiving tradition. It is sung to the tune of “Battle Hymn of The Republic” which most adults know, and it’s easy enough for kids to catch on.

Turkey Song Visual

When I taught my daughter’s 1st grade class this fun Thanksgiving song, I wanted a more kid-friendly printable. I had my designer create a printable with extra images to make it more fun. It uses the same design as the “memorize” series I’ve previously shared on my blog. My kids still LOVE this song and I hope your kids will too!

When I teach this song to little kids, it is also fun to read the book, Turkey Trouble.  It has a similar theme, and is so fun! Here are some more Thanksgiving books your kids will love.
