December 22: Thankful

*For today's gift, wrap card making supplies like card-stock, markers and stickers.
  • Read Phillipians 1:3
"I thank my God every time I remember you."

  • Ask your children, "Who are you thankful for?"

  • Talk about Christmas and the tradition of giving gifts. Give a few examples of how your family will show thankfulness to someone you love by giving them a gift at Christmas.

  • Explain how others may give gifts to members of your family because they also want to show you love. Discuss what it might look like to receive a gift with thanks.

  • Give the children your gift of markers and card making supplies and let them open it.

  • Explain that you will make cards for grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for whom you are thankful. You can use the verse as the text for the cards (if your children are old enough).

  • Pray, thanking God for each person mentioned.

  • Send the cards, save them as a Christmas gift, or keep them to use as thank-you cards after the holidays are over.
