I would like to take the time to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving as I will be taking all of this week off. I will begin posting the Christmas crafts on the 27th.
I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends surrounded by laughter and good food.
Just a reminder, make sure to check out my post on my site where I list all of my Thanksgiving crafts.
You can also find my Thanksgiving crafts on my Pinterest board.
A fun game to play to help accompany the story of Elisha helping the widow.
- Print the templates. Each child will only need twelve cards (six pairs). They can pick and choose between the different jars. (Template)
- Color all the jars including the ones with the words. (The cards with the words should be colored the same color).
- Cut out all of the cards.
- Glue the the six pairs of cards onto construction paper.
- Cut out the six pairs of cards from the construction paper.
- Finally glue the twelve cards with the words to the back of the construction paper cards.
If you laminate the cards they will last for a long time. You can use self laminating sheets or contact paper.
Worrying about our needs is not trusting God. We want our kiddos to not worry about their needs, but rather trust God to take care of them.
Make sure you clarify to the kiddos what those needs are. You find them in the context of the passage. “…as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.” Matthew 6:25 We don’t want our kids going home thinking God promises to get them a new Xbox 🙂
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “ Matthew 6:33
- Paint a paper plate blue.
- Print out the templates. (Template)
- Trace the templates onto construction paper.
- Glue on the nest to the paper plate.
- Then decorate the nest with strips of construction paper, hay, craft feathers, small leaves, or string.
- Next glue on the eggs. As many as you choose.
- Assemble the bird and then glue it on the nest.
- Finally glue on the branch to the paper plate.
If the kiddos choose to they can add paper flowers, leaves, or even tissue paper onto the tree branch.
