“Let us come before God with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” (Psalm 95:2 NIV)
Here is a template to use for a Thanksgiving prayer. In the spaces within the turkey and on the sides of the page, write your “gratitude list.” (Or if you are feeling grumpy, throw in your grievances as well) In the center of the turkey I usually write my name for God: “Loving God, Gracious God, Holy One….” Sing or hum or recite the above Psalm as you write and color.
If this gratitude gobbler is a little too goofy for you, trace around your hand to make your own template. If I could have drawn a beautiful cornucopia of autumn vegetables as a template I would have. (not in my skill set) A Blessed Thanksgiving to all.
Download first choosing the .pdf or.jpg version below the template. Then print. Feel free to make copies.
Below are two examples of gratitude turkeys from previous years.
