#SocialParenting: Thankful Hands Project – Teaching Children about Gratitude
What is your child thankful for? Preschool and Kindergarten Prep students at Bright Horizons at Brighton (Allston, MA) recently participated in a “Thankful Hands” activity to show what they are thankful for through art. After reading a story about gratitude, the students discussed the things they are thankful for as a group. With guidance from their teachers, the children traced hand prints for each of the things they are thankful – moms, dads, siblings, firemen…and yes, even pizza!
We featured a video of this classroom activity on the Bright Horizons YouTube page. Watch the Thankful Hands project in action:
