Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing the simple pleasures and acknowledging everything that we receive. Gratitude requires time to reflect, to stop and think.
This activity encourages pupils to think about different areas of their lives for which they might want to think of something for which they are thankful.
This is a particularly fun activity that involves the pupils using fishing rods to ‘catch’ one of the plastic ducks floating in a small paddling pool filled with water. On the underside of the duck a word or a question will encourage the pupils to think about a particular area of their life in which they might want to give thanks for.
There are other prayer activities in our library that focus on gratitude and being thankful (if you want to avoid one that involves water!).
