I am so so so excited that you have found Thanks-GIVING For Your Whole Family! The fall months and the holiday season have always been near and dear to my heart. I love the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings- cool crisp air, pumpkin pie scented candles, marshmallow-loaded hot cocoa, a crackling fire, and all of my loved ones close at hand.
Obviously, this means I also love Thanksgiving. I get to spend time with family, and there’s always a good football game. In celebration of Thanksgiving and anticipation of Christmas, it’s generally my goal that November would be filled with acts of service that demonstrate our gratitude and worship.
A couple of years ago, I developed a schedule of thanksgiving celebration in which our family focuses much more on genuinely giving than just saying how thankful we are (which, there’s definitely nothing wrong with that!). I am convinced that it creates the perfect space in our hearts to enter into worship in December.
I wrote a big, long blog post (because I’m nothing if not long-winded) a few years ago about it but decided to flesh that out into an instructional ebooklet instead. In order to make the challenge easier for us to actually implement, I also created a calendar for our Family Thanks-GIVING Challenge.
BUT, I wasn’t done. I want us all equipped with thanks-giving, joy-giving, colorful fall fun as much as possible, so I have few additional gifts for you.
You’ll want to use this “You’ve Been S’Mored!” kit in November at some point- trust me. You can grab that cuteness HERE.
I made a whole NEW fall/Thanksgiving printable pack for preschool and elementary students. But I didn’t want to leave bigger kids out of the fall festivities, so I’ve included some copywork resources and poems to recite for older students as well. Though- I’m confident they’ll want to get it on the scavenger hunt with their younger siblings anyway. COMING VERY SOON.
I shared a book list for fall with an additional preschool packet over HERE as well.
