November is the time of year when many people contemplate the blessings they have in life. And it is no wonder. Since 1863 in the United States, we have had a national holiday set aside to give thanks for God’s blessings in our lives.
Many people spend Thanksgiving day with family and friends, eating a big feast and watching football games. While sharing about all the food at your big Thanksgiving feast would be insensitive to your sponsored children, this month gives us an opportunity to share about the history of Thanksgiving, as well as some of the traditions you have in your family.
And what a great time of year to share about gratefulness!
Count your blessings with these adorable thumb print turkey cards found on sillyeaglebooks.com.
Encourage gratefulness with these printable bible verses about thankfulness found on rachelwojo.com.
- Looking for more printables to send? You can find quite a few Thanksgiving-themed options at Christian Preschool Printables.

This month, help us find Thanksgiving projects and ideas to share with our sponsored children for our Second Friday Letter Writing Club on Pinterest.
