We are more than halfway through our #30DaysofGratitude series, and I cannot believe it! Today, we are throwing it back to an oldy, but a goody, blog post filled with Thanksgiving-themed activities for all ages. I have updated the post below to focus on today's 30 Days of Gratitude challenge, listing the things you are grateful for. I encourage you to fill in the blanks of this song with the things you are grateful for to practice gratitude today!
This activity has been a hit every year, and it’s amazing to hear all of the beautiful memories my clients are able to share either through words or through selecting images from a choice board.
Directions (option 1):
Pass out a copy of the Give Thanks songwriting worksheet to each group member
Have each group member fill-in-the-blanks of the songwriting sheet
Collect each sheet, then play each version of the song
Ask the rest of the group to guess who wrote each song after playing
Directions (option 2):
Have each member of the group take turns answering the questions “What are you thankful for?”
You can write some options on a white board or create a visual choice board for non-verbal participants
Complete the song by filling-in-the-blanks on the sheet with each person's answer, then sing the final version with all of the answers put together!
I hope this is an activity you can do for yourself, with your children, or with any groups you are leading this November!
