The purpose of this weeks activity is to bring awareness to ourselves focussed on Gratitude, Positivity and Connection
What benefit does a practice based on Gratitude give to us?
Studies have shown that it can….
Decreases stress and anxiety
Makes us more resilient
Makes us more socially intelligent
Makes us kinder
And even makes us more likely to feel love.
What you need: Coloured paper to cut out flower parts, Glue, Scissors, Grateful hearts
What to do:
- Find fun coloured paper for your gratitude flowers.
- Start by cutting out a circle for the centre of the flower and write your name (or your child’s name on it). Make it big enough so that you have ample space to write.
- Next cut out big petals for the flower. Be creative and experiment with colours.
- Write down or draw the things you are grateful for on the petals. If your child is old enough, he can write his own; if not, then you can help him with that. You can draw pictures, too.
- Glue the petals to the flower centre and you have your first gratitude flower!
If you have more than one child in your family then you can start to grow a ‘gratitude garden’. Send us your pictures of your flowers and we can grow a garden for Croft.
With big friendliness
