Operation: Thanks Thanksgiving Single Lesson
Operation: Thanks is a single Thanksgiving lesson by Karl Bastiam & Tom Bump that challenges kids to show thanks in creative ways. This curriculum is FREE for Kidology Premium Members.
We live in a "gimmie gimmie" culture that focuses on how much it can get. God wants us to have an attitude of gratitude for the many blessings we already have. The purpose of this unit is not only to help kids focus on being thankful, but to challenge them to think of some people that haven't expressed thanks to. It will help them think of some ways they can express their thanks in practical ways.
Operation: Thanks includes an assignment after the lesson where children will be challenged to do something to demonstrate thankfulness to three people who have helped them, yet they haven't yet responded to in a tangible expression of thanks.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 - "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
