There are always great sayings for kids and adults at Thanksgiving...

The options are constantly changing, but you'll find some of the most current right here. I've also featured many below, along with my own story.

Are Your Kids Perky for Turkey? Creating Your Own Thanksgiving Sayings for Kids

I love puns. I've been known to go on for many lines with my Dad, and I attribute it to my Grandma's love for words. She was a librarian in her early days and later earned her master's degree in music. She was witty and wonderful. We had a family joke that you could only tell jokes on Sunday. We didn't stick to that rule, though.

Anyway, I love cute sayings, especially those that communicate a point. I love stories and activities that do the same. Hence, the Perky Turkey and the Fretful Fox!

This is my own story about a mother entertaining her kids on Thanksgiving morning as she finishes dinner prep. She comes up with a silly animal story that captures the characteristics of her two youngsters that day. You may know how the scenario plays out...I have a child who will pace in anticipation of something great. His middle name is the basis for my fretful character's name. I also have a couple of youngsters who hang a little too close in excited and cheerful anticipation. They are my models for the perky sister.

What I find great is that using such characters to communicate understanding is fun for the kids. Kids have the capacity for creating their own clever sayings. Sometimes they don't even realize they've done so. This is just a fun example of a mom using ingenuity to grab the attention of the kids while getting tasks completed.
