The Princess and her friends share Thanksgiving

What better way to commemorate the wonderful holiday of gratitude, with a story written by children ages 4 to 6 years old about what they are thankful for.

There’s nothing more adorable than reading how a child’s imagination is let loose with a creative writing project.

I hope this short story the children wrote will touch your heart and make you smile as they express their thankfulness through their story.

The Princess Who Ate Too Much at Thanksgiving

Princess Peach lived in a big castle called, Castle Love and Fun. The castle was made out of orange bricks, and had light green metal doors, and the windows were made out of red and gold paper.

One Thanksgiving afternoon, the princess went outside and swung on her swing that was made out of turkey drum sticks from last year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Her dad, King Funny built it for her and her friends.

After swinging she decided to go to the beach. At the beach the sand was covered in pumpkin seeds. Princess Peach went swimming in the blue water.

After she swam, she dried herself with a big red and white polka-dotted towel and opened a big picnic basket.

Her mommy, Queen Laughing had put it there for her to enjoy. Her mommy also put a big fluffy orange blanket there for her to sit on.

Inside the picnic basket she found Cheerios, sweet potato French fries, turkey slices, stuffing made out of Skittles and chocolate, strawberries and pumpkin pie with marshmallows on top and  a big jug of pink lemonade.

Princess Peach ate and drank until her tummy was full and then walked back to the castle.

When she arrived at her castle she went in and saw her friend, Baddy the Yu-Gi-Oh Pumpkin. Baddy was at the castle and was munching on peanut butter sandwiches.

Princess Peach then saw Tulip the Pumpkin Dragonfly in the living room.

Tulip was having fun, looking at the Princess’ gold fish in the big Pumpkin fish tank.

Princess Peach, Dragonfly and Baddy went down the stairs to the castle basement to play.

They decided to have a party. They had potato chips, hot dogs and orange juice.

But the princess was full from lunch, and her tummy was so full she floated up to the ceiling. Dragonfly flew up to save her.

When she came back down they all sat in a circle and held hands.

Princess Peach said, “Let’s say thanks for everything we have. I’ll start first. I am thankful for Dragonfly for knowing how to fly to come up and save me.”

Dragonfly giggled. “I am thankful for Saturday and Sunday, cuz then I don’t have to do any homework.”

Baddy shook his head up and down. “I am thankful for my mommy and daddy and my grams and gramps and, I think I’m missing someone.”

“Your baby sister Haddy?” said Prince Peach.

“Oh, yeah,” said Baddy. “Her too. And real thankful that mommy and daddy change her diapers.”

“I’m thankful for my daddy and him teaching me how to burp real loud,” said Prince Peach.

“Me too,” said Dragonfly. “My dad taught me to burp the alphabet, but mommy doesn’t like it, but I’m thankful that she laughs and doesn’t complain too much when we have burping contests.”

“I’m thankful for my dance moves,” Baddy said, and stood up and danced.

Princess Peach and Dragonfly laughed real hard.

“I’m thankful we can laugh loud and no teacher around to tell us to stop making noise,” said Dragonfly.

“I like that,” Princess Peach said. “I’m thankful for all the goodies we get to eat at Thanksgiving too.”

They all clapped and rubbed their tummies.

“I’m thankful for recess,” said Baddy.

“And let’s not forget to be thankful for all the animals in the zoo,” said Dragonfly.

They all clapped again and let out a big yawn.

“I’m sleepy,” said Princess Peach.

“Me too,” said Baddy and Dragonfly.

They lay down and all said together, “We are thankful for Thanksgiving and all the nice people who do nice things for us.”

They all took a nap, and dreamt of all the fun they were going to have together at Christmas in a month.


Wishing you all A Happy Thanksgiving.

May your tables be bountiful with love, good health and laughter.

I am thankful for all of you, who visit my blog and make my day just that much brighter.
