Give thanks and make those moments of grateful splendor a little sweeter with this free printable Gratitude Game.
Hey there Kenarry readers! Trish here with a sweet activity to count and share blessings in group settings. Similar to taking turns naming blessings while circling the family dinner table on Thanksgiving Day this activity encourages players to name things that they are thankful for based on the color of M&Ms.
Think school, church, sleepovers and family dinner. Every day is a good day to give thanks (and eat chocolate) with this free printable Gratitude Game!
How to Make & Play The Gratitude Game
I consider this a Thanksgiving activity; however, there is always something to be thankful for so there is no need to wait until the end of November to play this Gratitude Game.

take turns and give thanks
Page one is a full page color code key while page two includes four smaller game cards for those who would like to pass out game card keys to every player. All six M&M colors are assigned to their own respective subject.
Begin this sweet Gratitude Game by gathering your grateful group around a table or in a circle on the floor then pass out fun size bags of M&Ms candies to each player.
Take turns drawing a candy piece from the individual bags of chocolate then share what you are thankful for based on the candy color.
Depending on number of players and the time available there are a couple options for game play. One option is to play just one round allowing each player to draw one M&M and share one thing they are grateful for. Another option is to play as many rounds as time permits or until every player has drawn all six colors.
