Printable ABC Thanksgiving Cards for Kids {FREE}

GiveThanksfromAtoZ-pinimage Thanksgiving is a time to stop and give thanks to God for our many, many blessings. Of course, Thanksgiving isn’t the only time we should give thanks. We are commanded over and over again in Scripture to give thanks…in every circumstance and for all things! But I do love that we can set aside a day or two to really focus in on our blessings instead of taking them for granted {which I can be so guilty of}.

Printable ABC Thanksgiving Cards

Today, I’m sharing some free printable ABC Thanksgiving cards that can be used with your family to give thanks from A to Z. The idea is especially pertinent for young children {Pre-K through 2nd grade}, but can be used with everyone.

GiveThanksfromAtoZ-3How to Use the ABC Thanksgiving Cards

  • Print off the cards.
  • Each day, pick one or two letter cards with your child(ren).
  • Brainstorm a list of things for which you are thankful that begin with the letters. For example, if I picked t, I might say: trees, the Trinity, or tires for my van. Keep in mind that younger kids may not pick things that seem important to you (for example, your child may say he’s thankful for trains) and that’s okay, too. We can give thanks for ALL things!
  • Pick one item to write in the blank.
  • Younger kids (and older) may also enjoy drawing a picture to match the word in the blank space provided on each card.
  • Place the used cards in a box or special jar.
  • On Thanksgiving Day, or the day your family meets, everyone can draw out a few cards and read them aloud.
  • Pray and give thanks!

There is a variation mentioned in the download, but these cards are very open-ended so you can easily adapt them for your family. For example, I adapted this idea last year with my preschooler and 1st grader with an ABC’s of Thanksgiving journal.
