Thanksgiving Coloring Page

Enjoy these free Thanksgiving coloring pages created by Mandy Groce. It can double as a Thanksgiving craft and learning activity to help children think about specific blessings in their lives.  This would be the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving Sunday School lesson. I plan to use it in my children’s church during November.

Thankfulness coloring sheet

The tree coloring page has the words “I am thankful to the Lord.” It has bare tree branches, pumpkins, and a child’s swing. The second page has leaves where children can write in things for which they are thankful.

Mandy offered these thoughts about the pages. Be sure to leave her a comment if you want to thank her for this free material.

I planned these as an activity coloring sheet option, but the first sheet can be used for coloring only (younger kiddos). The idea being that the second sheet involves teacher/parent/student writing things that the student is thankful for. Once written, colored and cut, the tree can then be “trimmed”…

The captions says “Be thankful in all things.” This would be a great family activity sheet. This resource is also free to use in any ministry context.

Pilgrims Coloring PageThis coloring page features a Pilgrim family and their prayer of Thanksgiving to God as their ship arrives safely. It’s  a more historical approach to the holiday and would be great for homeschool or Christian schools.  Also illustrated by Mandy Groce.

    I have used the Thanksgiving tree coloring sheet for all my religious classes every year. It is my favorite. I print the leaves on different coloreed paper representing the changing colors of Fall. God is the vine and we are the branches from which all blessings are received.

  10. Lauren says

    Thank you Mandy! I am an occasional babysitter for the elementary school children on Sundays and your thanksgiving tree is something I was looking into getting the students into expressing their feelings without having them voice them out verbally. And it’s something they can take home and show their parents. :)

    I am using the tree with ‘things-I-am-thankful-for’ leaves for the Thanksgiving activity on Nov 24 with my class of 2-5 graders. I am so grateful for your sharing the talen God has given you that is such a help for those of us working with chldren. I especially like the simplicity of this particular coloring page because some pictures I find are so clutterd and ‘busy’ that it is hard to ‘see what the picture really is’ Thanks so much Mandy.
