Bible Activities About Gratitude
Gratitude is a perspective that affirms appreciation for the blessings one has. From a biblical perspective, it includes a realization that such blessings come from God, despite a failure to deserve such benefits. Preschoolers and children, of course, cannot understand the concept of gratitude this broadly, but they can be reminded of the importance of having and expressing appreciation to God for every blessing.
