This is a great activity to teach your kids to be thankful and not to take things for granted. As a wise person once said, “There is always, always something to be thankful for.”
Things you need:
- Coloured chart paper (1 sheet of Brown and 3-5 sheets of green, yellow, orange, red)
- Blue tac
How to do it:
Draw the shape of a tree bark on brown paper, cut it out and stick it on your wall using blue-tac.
Let each member in your family chose a chart colour. Draw each person’s hand shape on the chart they have chosen.
Cut out atleast 20 hands from each chart colour.
Everyday each person must write one thing they are thankful for on their hand cut out. For example: my friend Paul, or the green leaves, or family times, Anna Doll, etc. If your child prefers to draw, they can do that too. Once they are done, they can stick it on the tree.
Soon your tree will fill up with more and more leaves. If you do it consistently for a month, you’ll have about 100 leaves and plenty of things to be thankful for!
