Fun-Filled Friday Part 2: Happy Thanksgiving!

Just as I had hoped, here is Part 2 of Fun-Filled Friday. Hope you enjoy all these ideas. Be sure to check back later throughout the week. I'm hoping to have more Thanksgiving ideas for you.

1) Thankful Tree

Isn't this Thankful Tree cute? I found this idea over at Boasting in My Weakness. To get started, you'll need a tree. (You can make one from brown posterboard, construction paper, felt, etc. You could also use a branch placed in a flower pot and then hang the leaves on the tree.) Then you'll need to cut out some leaves of different fall colors. Ask your family, "What are you most thankful to God for?" Then write each family member's response on a leaf and stick it to the tree. Repeat this daily until Thanksgiving. You can read them all on Thanksgiving day.

It is important for us to learn to be thankful for what we have. Being thankful helps us learn to be content and happy, no matter our circumstances.

2) Thanksgiving Scripture Place Cards

Boasting in My Weakness also has an idea for scripture place cards. Your kids could help decorate these with glitter, stickers, etc.

3) Thanksgiving Coloring Pages

Printables for Kids has free Thanksgiving coloring pages.

Have fun!
