THANKSGIVING: Kids are thankful too! Video

It's so easy to create videos these days that I thought it would be fun to create a "Kids are thankful too!" video to play before or after the Thanksgiving service.  The concept is simple.  Ask as many kids as you can what they're thankful for and only record their answers.  Now, you have to remember that young children (3 to maybe 5 years old) are being taught to say "thank you" but don't really understand the concept of thankfulness so if you're not getting an appropriate answer you might want to ask the question differently.  Try... "What (or who) do you love most?"  "What (or who) makes you happy?"

If you ask adults you'll get the same answers...  Jesus, my faith, my family, my friends, my job.  All good answers and I hope they're in that order but it's not nearly as cute as those little kidlets.  Don't expect them all to say Jesus.  Some responses will be very serious, some funny, but all good.  Sometimes they say the last thing on their mind in the moment and it might be what they had for lunch.  Give it a try and see what you get!  If it turns out good put it on your church website...
