Children will have fun finding turkeys and thanking God for His many blessings.

Blessing, Provision, Thankfulness
Approximately 10 minutes
Print out as many turkey tracks as you can. Make a couple of different trails. Print out some turkeys that you can hide throughout the rooms as the tracks lead to the turkeys. Example: As the children follow a line of turkey tracks, the tracks might stop at a cabinet and with adult supervision they can open the cabinet and see a turkey taped inside. They can all yell, “Thank You God for this turkey.” (Optional: You can tape the turkey tracks to the floor so they will not move as the children walk on them.).
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
In a single file line, guide the children on a turkey hunt around the room. Encourage them to act like a turkey and make turkey sounds.
WHAT YOU WILL SAY:
It is time for our turkey hunt. Let’s track down some turkeys. We are going to follow the turkey tracks while acting like turkeys so we don’t scare them away. When we find a turkey, we will point to the turkey and say, “ Thank You God for this turkey and all the other blessings You provide!” Let's practice this once and say it aloud as a class, “Thank You God for this turkey and all the other blessings You provide!” Good job, now who is ready to find some turkeys?
