Giving Thanks ~ Tuesday



Thanksgiving Jokes and Riddles :-)

We used these at one of our home school Thanksgiving parties. I had them printed on slips of paper in a brown bag. All the children took turns pulling one out of the bag, reading it to the group, and giggling.

What kind of music did the Pilgrims dance to?The Plymouth Rock!

Where did the first corn come from?The stalk brought it!

What happened to the Pilgrim who was shot at by an Indian?He had an arrow escape!

Why did the Indian chief wear so many feathers?To keep his wigwam!

What did the turkey say before it was roasted?
Boy, am I stuffed!

If April showers bring May flowers…
What do Mayflowers bring?
Pilgrims!

How did the Mayflower show that it liked America?It hugged the shore!

Round as an apple.
A color like gold.
With more things inside,
Than you are years old.
What is it?
A pumpkin!

An Indian had 2 ½ piles of corn in one row. He had 1 ½ piles of corn in another row. Then he put them together. How many piles did he have?One pile!

A Pilgrim had nine ears of corn in his barn. Each day a squirrel came to the barn and took away three ears. But it took the squirrel nine days to remove all the corn. Can you guess why? The squirrel took away three ears each time, but only one was made of corn. The other two were his own!

What key has legs and can’t open doors?A turkey!

What happened when the turkey got into a fight?He got the stuffing knocked out of him!

Why was the turkey the drummer in a band?Because he had the drumsticks!

Knock! Knock!
Who’s there?
Waddle
Waddle who?
Waddle I do if you don’t open the door?!

Yes - a building can't jump at all!

The outside!

What happened to the turkey whose feathers were all pointing the wrong way?He was tickled to death!
