How about having some fun and helping your children raise money for the Thanksgiving

Turkey TrotOffering at the same time? Our children held a “Turkey Trot.” On the Sunday that we presented our church’s Thanksgiving Offering goal, the children were given sponsor sheets. They asked for sponsors; and, a couple of weeks later, we held the event.

A track was set up with cones around the church parking lot, and “officials” were asked to stand at the Start/Finish Line to count laps. Parents, grandparents, and friends were encouraged to attend to cheer for the “trotters.” Afterward, everyone was treated to hot dogs and the trimmings around a campfire.
