Thanksgiving Family Activity: Wall of Thankfulness

Your church family will celebrate God’s blessings this Thanksgiving with this special Wall of Thankfulness craft, created especially by children.


Creating a Wall of Thankfulness

You’ll need:

  • Instant or digital camera (with a way to print pictures),
  • construction paper,
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • markers,
  • and other craft decorating items

Using an instant or digital camera, take pictures of families a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Have a child in each family cut out a construction paper house, leaving a window in the middle of the house for a family picture to be placed.

Have children write their family’s name on their houses and list what they’re grateful for about their families. Kids can add favorite Bible verses on their houses, too. Finish the houses by gluing the pictures inside the windows.

Place all the houses together on a bulletin board to make this wall and watch the heartwarming responses.
