What are Your Thanksgiving Traditions? (Children’s Ministry Moment #6)

Childrens_Ministry_MomentsThis past weekend in our large group teaching, I was talking to the kids about the Thanksgiving traditions in their family and reminding them what we have to be thankful for above all other things. We were talking about family coming and visiting relatives. We were talking about who does and doesn’t like turkey. Then, I started to ask them what else they had for Thanksgiving. We went through the usual suspects:

  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Any other kind of meat
  • Corn
  • Potatoes
  • Stuffing
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Pecan Pie
  • Other Vegetables

Then I asked if anyone had anything else every Thanksgiving they I hadn’t mentioned yet.  There were a couple of answers (which frankly I can’t remember as I write this), then one little boy raised his hand, and I called on him:

Ramen Noodles!

he exclaimed with excitement.  Now, that is a unique Thanksgiving tradition!
