2. Primary 2 Lesson Cards

3. Handout by Melissa Dillon

4. Game - Have the children stand in a circle.  Tell them you are thinking of two secret words.  You will toss the ball to a child standing in the circle.  They come to you and whisper what they think the two secret words are.  If they guess correctly, (the words are, "Thank-you") they return to their place in the circle and they become the one who tosses the ball.)  If they guess incorrectly, they return to their place in the circle and you remain the one tossing the ball.  Once a child has repeated the secret words to you they no longer have to.  Encourage the ones tossing the ball to throw it to children who have not had a turn.  Make sure all children know the secret words before ending the game.  

5. Have the class make thank you cards for the bishop, Primary Presidency, class members, etc.

6. Sing with your class, "Children all over the world"

7. Candy bar wrapper that says, "Thank You" from - Give each child a candy bar and tell them that they can't keep if for themselves.  They have to give the candy bar away to someone they appreciate.  It could be the bishop, mom or dad, grandparent, etc.  However, they have to tell them thank you!

8. My class enjoyed making "thank you" necklaces.  Using elastic string and small beads, we made necklaces, interspersing small pieces of paper saying "thank you" in a variety of colors and fonts, with a hole punched in them.  When they said thank you to some one, they tore off a thank you and gave it to that person.

13. Tammy Brown writes, "I came across this website and will use this activity for my 3-4 yr olds. It will go well with the Primary manual 2 lessons 24 (gratitude) AND 25 (saying thank you) since they both mention this story." (ga07212012)

    I need some tips please. How could I have the children 'decorate' their Thank you cards? They not the biggest fan of coloring.

  • cwb

    how about stickers (cheap ones!) or stamps if you have any? If you have stencils of animals/shapes/letters those could work too even though they are coloring at least it's making a shape..hope that helps have fun and good luck :)

  • JCC

    Shannon--also, they could use scissors and glue and cut and paste things they are grateful for from old magazines (available at thrift stores, recycle centers, etc.) Your class children might like a collage on colorful paper better than a Thank You they have to color themselves...or they could "design" their own thank yous.

    Thank you to all the wonderful contributors! Every week you bless the lives of children. :)

  • Janice  - Lesson cards

    I've been working on the Thankful Jars this morning--what a neat idea. THANKS!! Were
    you going to do the lesson cards again this week like you did last week as requested by a reader--that's a really great idea to send home with the kids as a reminder of the lesson and the challenges for the week!

    Again thanks for all the great ideas and for making my class fun for both me and my kids.

    Janice :)
