A Plethora of Thanksgiving Ideas

Last year I shared a plethora of Thanksgiving traditions.  The response was huge because these ideas were different from the typical ideas.  These are ideas that move beyond a craft to helping you leave a legacy with your children

Instead of simply reposting all of these ideas, here are the links.  Click to find out more!

  Chain of Praise - Creating a paper chain of things you are thankful.

   A book to introduce the true meaning of Thanksgiving and being thankful.  We use this book to introduce whatever activities we are doing as a family.

  Kernels of Thanks - Circling the table to share thanksgiving.

  Gratitude Rolls - Hiding thanksgiving in a crescent roll.

  Thanksgiving Play - Use this book as an example for writing your own Pilgrims and Indian Thanksgiving play.

  Create personal Attitude of Gratitude charts.  Allow the child to place a sticker everything he or she demonstrated a proper attitude.

  Turkey of Thanks - easy craft for preschoolers

Table Cloth of Thanks used year after year.

Find more ideas on the ABC Jesus Loves Me Thanksgiving page.  

Tomorrow I will begin sharing new ideas including how we are changing our Chain of Blessings to match a need in our family.
