Give everyone in the family one or more strips of coloured paper
Invite them to name one thing that they are grateful for and draw it on the strip of paper (or get an adult to write it for them).
Link each of the strips of paper together to form a long 'chain of gratitude'
This could be done each week of the year and could be read out during thanksgiving week.
This is a simple prayer where kids use their fingers as they pray for: Thumb: People who are far away Index finger: People who lead Middle finger: People in power Ring finger: People we love Little finger: People who are ill or on the outskirts Hand: pray for yourself
Create journals for your children to draw, paint or write to Jesus in.
