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 us.

Have kids find random items in your room to use as instruments. Set out paper, and let kids make hats, signs, 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.
