When we have times to be together with those we love and who love us, that is what makes holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent's Day, etc... so very special and important to our lives.
In this Gospel Magic Object Lesson, 'It's All About Family,' you show three jumbo cards and ask your volunteer to choose one. It is a COMPLETELY FREE CHOICE! Regardless of his decision, you can instantly show that his choice was the correct one by revealing a prediction that has been hidden in plain sight all along.
Using the three picture illustrations of HOME, FAMILY, and DINNER TIME, your group will discover how God has given them people in their lives to be their family, to learn from them, spend time with them, and love them.
Print and fold the cards and you are set to go!

True thankfulness is a life-motivating attitude which changes our perspective on all that God has provided for us.

Did you know that wild turkeys have between 5,000-6,000 feathers? What a remarkable clothing those feathers make for a turkey!
What is more remarkable than that is that you and I can clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ as we are encouraged to do in Romans 13:14.
This original balloon sculpture design by Alisa J. Linn creates a large delightful turkey by twisting seven 260Q balloons into a colorful eye-catching character.
As always, Alisa’s lesson powerfully presents strong life-changing scriptural truths. Numerous texts from the Old Testament are used to show the foundational importance God places on thankfulness. Verses from Ephesians 5:4 and Colossians 2:7 wonderfully address the challenge we face to rid ourselves of ungrateful attitudes and replace them with thankfulness.
Here is the THANKSGIVING release of our INCREDIBLY POPULAR PinPoint Hidden Object games!
You take the role of two children helping their parents get ready for Thanksgiving! Find hidden objects along the driveway and fence row, in the front yard, and around the back of the house next to the barn.
After you use your Super-Duper Snooper skills to gather all the items from your lists, you discover a surprise hidden behind the barn! Can you spot the differences between the left and right lenses of your special binoculars as you examine your barnyard guest?
This is an excellent lesson on the importance of thankfulness in prayer!
We are exhorted by God in Colossians 4:2 to be thankful while devoting ourselves in prayer. This easy-to-do, no sleight-of-hand effect creatively presents the truths of ‘WATCHFULNESS’ and ‘THANKFULNESS’ through a clever interactive presentation.
You show several cards which spell the words ‘WATCHFULNESS’ and ‘THANKFULNESS.’ Your volunteer freely shuffles the cards. You place an envelope containing a piece of paper upon which you have written a prediction onto the top of the deck of shuffled cards. When your volunteer opens the envelope it is revealed that prediction inside is the same as the letter card shuffled to the top of the deck by your volunteer, the letter “U”.
Works every time! Only moments to learn! Simply make the cards, write U on a piece of paper and put it into an envelope and you are ready to go!
