Thanksgiving Day parades are a fun tradition you can play off of
to create your ministry’s own Thanksgiving tradition.
Say: During Thanksgiving, we think about things we’re
thankful for. What’s God given you that you’re thankful
for? Allow time.
Say: Some people celebrate with a parade at
Thanksgiving. Maybe you’ve seen one on television or attended one.
Let’s have a Thanksgiving parade to celebrate all that God’s given
Have kids find random items in your room to use as instruments.
Set out paper, and let kids make hats or other costume items they
can tape to their clothes or wave in the air. Let them parade
around the room singing a song, such as “Jesus Loves Me.”
For added impact, arrange with your pastor to have kids bring
their parade into your main service, and have the congregation sing
a song of thanksgiving together.
