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!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Thankful Turkeys Sing-Along Thanksgiving Singing Time Idea

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. 

Once you compile your list of Thanksgiving songs, use flip charts (lots can be found HERE) or create a playlist using the Gospel App for Kids (more details on that app HERE).

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.

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.

Afterward, have the children take home their turkeys to display until Thanksgiving!
