Thanksgiving Activity

Every Monday night at our house we have
Family Home Evening.

We usually end up playing a game together,
but last year we had a lesson and activity
on giving thanks.
It was perfect for this time of year,
and I think we'll do it again.

I printed out these "Thanks"

and "Giving" trees, as well as the leaves

(found here).

The kids wrote something they were thankful for on each of these leaves

and then we put them on the trees.

For the giving tree we came up with some simple things they could do to serve others,
and they wrote those on leaves to stick on the Giving Tree.

Hopefully it at least got them thinking about everything they should be thankful for!

P.S. To ensure Christmas delivery on items from my shop please be sure to place your order by December 2nd. Thanks!!
