Thanksgiving File Folder Games:

We've got some great Thanksgiving file folder games on our sister site www.FileFolderFun.com.
These would be perfect to keep around the area for when children first arrive, or are waiting to be
picked up.  If you run an all day daycare, these work wonderfully for center time activities.

Thanksgiving Bible Craft:  Scripture Garland

This is a video with instructions for how to make
your own Thanksgiving Scripture Garland for
your Centerpiece.  I picked up all the stuff from
Walmart, and it was very simple to make.  
Children love to string on the leaves and
personalize them with the things they are
thankful for.  Additional ideas:  Make one as an
Advent style garland, and write in a bible verse
on each leaf.  Each day look up that verse in the
bible and talk with your children about what it
means to be thankful.  Here is another
list of
things to be thankful for.

If you really want to get serious with the
Thanksgiving Advent style, check out this
handmade felt calendar!

and there are lots of other thanksgiving
lapbooks out there as well!

711185: Give Thanks to the Lord Give Thanks to the Lord
By Karma Wilson / Zondervan

Join a joyous celebration in this heartwarming story that references Psalm 92 in tender rhyme from award-winning author Karma Wilson. Told from the point of view of one young member of an extended family, Give Thanks to the Lord celebrates joy of all kinds, from the arrival of distant relatives to a cozy house already filled with merriment, to apple cider and the delicious smells of roasting turkey and baking pies. And just when your mouth is watering, sit down and join a thankful child in prayer, praising God for "food and fun and family, all the wonderful things I see." Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
