Create thankful turkeys for a Thanksgiving themed singing time! Sing primary songs on thanks as children color and create their own thankful turkeys! Items they are thankful for can come from songs on thanks found in the Children’s Songbook!
There are SO many songs in the Primary Songbook on giving thanks to Heavenly Father. Several that I’m very unfamiliar with (so it’s probably safe to assume so are the primary kids!). This Thanksgiving singing time activity will help acquaint your primary to these unknown primary songs!
That said, this Thanksgiving activity can be done with ANY primary song(s)! I’ve just picked the most unknown ones below.
To project sing along videos in singing time, I LOVE to use my iPhone adaptor (more details can be found HERE) to connect to our ward’s TV.
- Thanks To Thee p. 6
- I Thank Thee Dear Father p. 7
- Father, We Thank Thee for the Night p. 8
- Can a Little Child Like Me? p. 9
- Thank Thee For Everything p. 10
- I’m Thankful to Be Me p. 11
- Children All Over the World p. 16
- Heavenly Father, Now I Pray p. 19
- A Song of Thanks p. 20
- Thanks to Our Father p. 20
- For Health and Strength p. 21
- For Thy Bounteous Blessings p. 21
- Thank Thee Father p. 24
- We Bow Our Heads p. 25
- I Love to Pray p. 25
- Thankful (not in the songbook or in the Gospel App for Kids – check out more details HERE with a link to a YouTube video)
You may or may not get through all of these in singing time!
As the kids sing along, they can color and/or write down things they are thankful for to create their own Thankful turkey. They can use suggestions from the songs of things they are thankful for.
Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post. Make enough copies for each child to have their own.
Afterward, have the children take home their turkeys to display until Thanksgiving!
