Today I did a craft with the Kindergartens that worked AMAZING! I mixed cornsyrup and blue food colouring together and had the students spread it on the fishbowl cutout. The syrup is so sticky they just needed to stick the fish, seaweed and rocks on top and voila...the syrup dries shiny like water. Thought I would share as it was very easy but look so pretty! The kids loved it :)

Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend! To prepare the Kindergarten class for this, I wrote on the morning message "What are you thankful for?". Hoping I would get some insightful answers of what we should be thankful for, we proceeded to make a chart of all the things that we say "thank you God for". It started off great...I am thankful for God, Jesus, my family, a healthy heart, people being healed, brothers and sisters, food...so amazing...what great answers! Then it continued...toys, lego and "my superman pajamas":) Superman Pajamas???
I am constantly reminded, through the eyes of a child, that there is SO MUCH to be thankful for! We are so blessed to be able to freely worship the ONE who has blessed us, to go to a school that is able to speak the Word, live in a free country, to have a voice (VOTE), to have an excess amount of food available to us, to have a family who loves us...on and on and on. These sometimes though are the obvious things that I SEE I am thankful for...but what are MY "superman pajamas", what I may not always SEE or that others don't always see? What are those not so obvious things that I am thankful for, those little things in life that are great that I technically could live without, but am blessed to have...Am I truly thankful for them or am I waiting for something BIG to be thankful for? It is said that if you are not truly thankful you are spoiled; or it has even been said you are cursing the things you have. WOW...May I truly be thankful for the things that God has blessed me with...even my superman pajamas ;)
