Thanksgiving Psalms Bumper Stickers

Thanksgiving Psalms Bumper Stickers Activity - text on background of muted leaves

On those days when I drive to work on the crowded Chicago expressways, I can’t help but notice the wide variety of bumper stickers on the cars in front of me. Some of the bumper stickers announce the car owner’s allegiance to a particular sports team, his or her political leanings, hobbies, religious persuasion (or lack thereof), pet peeves, a favorite radio station, or the driver’s idea of humor or wisdom, just to name a few. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I offer an activity that invites young people to create Thanksgiving Psalms bumper stickers.

As you know, the 150 psalms speak to every mood, feeling, attitude, or circumstance imaginable. Some of the most popular psalms, however, are psalms of thanksgiving, many of which contain brief, catchy phrases that are well-suited to the bumper-sticker format.

With that in mind, here is a free PDF that you can download that provides instructions for guiding young people in creating Thanksgiving Psalms bumper stickers.
