The BBCLC family came together last night and had our Annual Gratitude Gathering! We could NOT have had this gathering without the HUGE support from our families!!! We are so, so thankful for the VERY thoughtful donations, gifts, and goodies!
We sat around the table and enjoyed each other’s company while we enjoyed the delicious catered food and conversation. And we laughed A LOT!!!
We did not have a chance to play any games, but we were able to go around the table and say what we were Thankful for!
There is SO much to be Thankful for, especially around the holidays! We encourage you to share what you’re thankful for around your dinner table.
Some other activities and games you can play during the upcoming holiday (or even any day).
Conversation Starters- have a jar with folded-up questions. Each of you takes a turn asking the question that’s on the paper and then everyone will have an opportunity to share.
“What is your favorite family tradition?”
“What is the best memory of this past year and why?”
“What is the nicest thing someone has done for you this year?”
M&M Game- grab a bag of candy and have each person pick one piece of candy. Depending on their pick, you will ask them a specific thankful question.
Red- Name a Person you are grateful for
Orange- Name Something you are thankful for
Yellow- Name a Memory you are thankful for
Green- Name a Place you are thankful for
Blue- Name a Skill you are thankful for
Brown- Name Anything you are thankful for
Thankful Scavenger Hunt-
Find a person you love
Find something that keeps you warm
Find your favorite food
Find something that makes you smile
Find something you do that makes others happy
Find something you are thankful for
Lastly, something fun you can add to your Holiday Dinner Table is sticks in a vase with hanging laminated leaves that say what each family member/friend is thankful for!
From our family to yours, we wish you a very Happy and Safe Holiday! Be sure to come back as we will have more information on Relationships/Connections and Mindfulness!
