There are so many reasons to give thanks to God. Today, I wanted to look at scripture that would help encourage my kids to learn how to thank God for all the blessings in our lives. I made a printable for you so it would be really easy for you to play this thankfulness game too. The printable contains the letters that make up “thanks” with a verse in each letter. All you do is print it out, cut up the letters and then hide them around the room. When a letter is found by one of your kids, freeze the game and read the verse. Kids continue on the search until all the thanks verses are found. The final step is to have them unscramble the letters to try and spell a word. The verses obviously give a major clue. The kids absolutely loved playing this game. They wanted to take turns hiding and finding the letters again and again.
“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
First of all, I love your site and have used many of your character materials and games in my first year of homeschooling. thank you! I tried to print the printable with the Thanks and verses but was brought to a dropbox page that gave me a 403 error that I do not have access. Can you help? Thanks!!
Oh Wow – The link was broken. I fixed it, and it worked for me. I’m really encouraged that you have been using a lot of my character lessons. It’s a series that I’m super passionate about, and it’s nice to know that it has become a resource for others. Let me know if you have any other issues. Thanks!
Love your activities but the links will not open for me.
Weird. It works for me. So sorry are having trouble. I’m going to put the actual link here. If it doesn’t work, let me know, and I will try a different method. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jxfaxtmwfmz1pfr/thanks%20verses%20printable%20with%20c.pdf
