Last week we invited children to share what they’re grateful for. We considered the people, animals, places, activities and foods we love. Then we wrote those gratitudes on tiny pieces of parchment paper and baked them into our rolls and bread sticks. At snack, each child got to reveal one surprise message– something someone in our group deeply values. This simple activity generated lots of excitement and supported our focus of noticing and appreciating the myriad riches in our lives.
