Talk About It!
Have fun asking question for all your family members!
When do you say “thank you”? How often do you think you say it everyday?
Thanksgiving is so fun because it’s a whole day to celebrate being thankful! In our book “Thank You God,” it shows so many blessings we have. And the fun thing it shows how each blessing brings another blessing, like rain bring rainbows and rainbows reminds of God’s forever love. And that’s the real joy of God’s love for us, that He blesses us in ways that are never ending. What a great reason to celebrate today!
Dig Deeper: Today’s reading is of God’s idea of a peaceful world. Where do you see peace that you can be thankful for? Where have you made peace for others to be thankful for?
Family Activity Choices
Pick activities to do together with supplies you have around your house!
Activity 1: Give Thanks Rainbow: use a color cube or anything colorful and let each member pick a color and then list things you are thankful for that are that color.
Activity 2:Gratitude Scavenger Hunt: Print off the attached pdf or create your own Gratitude Scavenger Hunt. Walk around your house and neighborhood and snap some pics of things you are grateful for.

Find something that entertains you.
“Dear God, thank you for thankful hearts! Help me to see all the blessings around me and never let me stop saying thank you. I love you God, amen!”
