"THANK-filled" to God Calendar
The goal of this week’s lesson is to prepare your children's hearts for Thanksgiving. On good days and bad days, there is so much to "Thanks-filled" to God for.
Materials Needed: Calendar, Poster board, Ruler, Markers, Thanksgiving Stickers
Bible Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
I love getting ready for Thanksgiving! There is so much to do around our home to get ready for the holiday. But, even moreso, there is so much to do in our hearts to get ready for the holiday!
According to this calendar, Thanksgiving is how many days away? Let's count together.
(Count the number of days until Thanksgiving.)
Great job! Now, let's make our own calendar to countdown until Thanksgiving.
Each day, we are going to think of one thing to thank God for. Next, we will say a prayer to God thanking Him for that blessing. Then, we will write that blessing down in our Calendar for that day.
We will be more than thankful. We will be truly filled up with thanks each day! We will call ourselves "THANKS-filled" to God, as we lead up to the holiday!
Praise God for this daily exercise and the holiday of Thanksgiving, which our hearts will be prepared for by the time it arrives!
