Thanksgiving Prayer Placemat

Thanksgiving Prayer Placemat

Set the atmosphere for a faith-filled Thanksgiving by sending children home with a Thanksgiving prayer placemat. Fun for kids of all ages (even adults!), the center of the placemat includes a child’s prayer of gratitude next to a cornucopia to color. Surrounding the prayer are several activities for children to do in the classroom during a discussion on the holiday or while waiting for the family to sit down to dinner: a question to prompt a gratitude list, a word scramble, a maze, and a dot-to-dot picture to color. Encourage children to pray the prayer with their families before digging into the turkey and other special holiday dishes.

Print the placemat on 11” x 17” paper, and get ready to celebrate with this simple but meaningful reminder that we give thanks to God for all good gifts.
