Prayer of St. Ignatius

Teach us, good Lord, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do your will. Amen. ~~ prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola

Thanksgiving Lapbook


Next week we'll take a break from school to get ready for a big Thanksgiving feast at our house. I wanted to have something for the kids to do in the days before Thanksgiving (other than watching television or playing games!). I found this Thanksgiving Lapbook, and determined it to be a good starting point. We'll do more drawing or collage work and less coloring, but it's a good base to work from. With a prayer and some scripture added, and some crafts from here or here, we have the makings of a lovely lapbook.



  1. Thanks for the resources, Barbara. I want to keep the kids busy next week, too, as I will be hosting my 1st Thanksgiving—Eeeek!! (I'm a bit nervous ... but excited, too.) I also want to make sure we remember what we're celebrating and why, so I hope to incorporate some activities into the actual holiday, too ...

  2. Thanks, Barbara... my girls are working on them right now.


Thanks for talking back. ;-)
