This is a fun, easy gratitude game if you have young children and want to teach them about gratitude - and all you need is a bag of M&Ms! If you don't have a bag of them, another candy will do as long as it has 6 colors.
It is never too soon to start incorporating a gratitude practice into your children and showing them how powerful it can be! This gratitude game makes the experience fun and memorable.
HOW TO PLAY
Open up your bag of M&Ms (or whatever candy you have chosen) and split them up between your family. Depending on the size of the family, everyone will have at least 4 or 5 pieces. Then, take turns sharing what you are grateful for from the picture below based on the corresponding M&M color!
The Red color represents a place you are grateful for.
The Brown color represents a memory you are grateful for.
The Blue color represents a person you are grateful for.
The Green color represents a thing you are grateful for.
The Orange color represents something you're grateful for that starts with the first letter of your name.
The Yellow color represents something you are grateful for about someone you are with.
After you share what you are grateful for based on the M&M color, you get to eat the candy! On second thought, this may be a game you want more than one bag for! This gratitude game is also great for teachers and classrooms, church groups, summer camps, or just to play by yourself.
