The Turkey Hop

by Carole Stephens © 2003

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.

Lyrics:

Do the turkey hop: Hop, Hop, Hop! 
Do the turkey run: Run, Run, Run! 
Do the turkey gobble: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble! 
It is lots of fun: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble! 
Now flap your wings: Flap! Flap! Flap! 
Like the turkeys do: Flap! Flap! Flap! 
Then hide from the farmer, before he catches you! 

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!"
