Five Little Pilgrims Finger-play Rhyme

Here’s a Popular Thanksgiving Poem…

Five Little Pilgrims

Five little Pilgrims on Thanksgiving Day. (Hold up 5 fingers)
The first one said, “I’ll have cake if I may.” (Point to the thumb)
The second one said, “I’ll have turkey roasted.” (Point to the index finger)
The third one said, “I’ll have chestnuts toasted.” (Point to the middle finger)
The fourth one said, “I’ll have pumpkin pie.” (Point to the ring finger)
The fifth one said, “Oh, cranberries I spy.” (Point to the pinkie)
But before the Pilgrims ate their turkey and dressing,
They bowed their heads a said a thanksgiving blessing.” (Fold all 5 fingers like they’re pilgrims with their heads down)
