Thankful | Watch Party Activities | Arrow Kids
Here are a few simple activities to help your
kiddos learn from the service as you join up to watch it from home.
This month, we will be talking about how important thankfulness is in our lives no matter what is happening around us. This week, we will talk about how we need to run back to Jesus with thankfulness for what He's done and who He is!
Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to Lord of lords. His love endures forever. To Him who alone does great wonders. His love endures forever.
Arrows of Triumph (2nd-5th Grade)
For the oldest children, we have a "Thankful Thoughts" page. Throughout the service, kids can think about how Jesus does so many wonders and is so wonderful that we should always be running back to Him to thank Him. They can examine the meaning of Luke 7:11-19 and what it means to be thankful.

Arrow Kids (1-10yo)
Play a simple Thankfulness game together as a family. Find something around your house that is the same material but different colors. You could use something edible like M&Ms, gummy bears, fruit loops, or jelly beans. You could also use something that isn't edible like different colored straws, blocks, balls, pom poms, or pipe cleaners. Then, on a piece of paper or board large enough for everyone to see, assign each color with a category. For younger children, make the categories very simple. For example the categories could be red for family, blue for food, green for animals, orange for places, yellow for friends. For older children, you could make the categories more challenging. For example the categories could be red for times when God helped me with school, yellow for characteristics of God, orange for ways God has answered prayer, green for things that have happened during the pandemic, and so on. Either have each child pick a handful of the items out of a bowl or cup and then volunteer to give their answers or have children pick one at a time. If it is something edible, just make sure they don't eat it until they have thanked God first! Let's remind one another to run back to Jesus with thankfulness!
