How to write a Thanksgiving acrostic
LOOKING FOR a holiday activity? Divert your kids with a Thanksgiving acrostic poem!
- Write the word THANKSGIVING vertically on a sheet of lined paper. Using each of the letters, make a fun acrostic.
- Each line can be one word, a phrase, or a sentence. See how creative you can be!
- Poems can be left-aligned or centered.
- Afterwards, illustrate your acrostics or decorate the page with photos cut from a magazine.
I’ll start you off with a couple of examples.
Thanking the Lord
Gifts of food
Indeed we are blessed
Neighbors have shared
God has provided
Thanksgiving at Home
T urkey time (I love the dark meat best!)
H oping the weather will turn cold
A untie’s apple pie—the best!
N ine plates around the table
K eeping family traditions
S tuffing my tummy with—what else?—stuffing!
G iving thanks for my family
I nviting our neighbor so he won’t be lonely
V egetables that I love (corn and green beans—yum!)
I think I am about to burst!
N aps for babies (and tired grandparents!)
G ames and laughter after dinner
Tuck this away for when the children begin to grow bored in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. I know your family will enjoy playing with acrostics!
