Learn how to make a boat of gratitude with your child, step by step
Even if you can start teaching your children what gratitude is to from 3 years, this craft is more for children from 5 years. It is about creating a 'thank you' or gratitude boat. Follow these instructions:
1. To make a flower on the lid of the jar, you need very thin paper of different colors. With four will be enough. It has to have a square shape. You put them one on top of the other. The two above, if possible, yellow, to make the central part of the flower. Now you bend them like an accordion. In ziz zag.
2. Once you have doubled all, you take the yellow ones ... They will be the stamens of the flower! Cut that strip in half, because you only need one of the two pieces. And that chosen part you fold it in half and you make some very thin small cuts at the ends.
3. Now open again your yellow sheets that you had folded in accordion form. You open all the others and place the yellow ones on top, right in the center. That fit well. You fold it in half and staples right in the middle.
4. Very carefully, you are opening the flower. You only have to paste it on the lid. 5. Use a white sticker to put a very big THANK YOU and stick it on the jar.
The next thing is to ask your child to think about all the beautiful things that have happened during the day.
You have to write them down on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Each week, he will take out the papers he put in the bottle and read them to remember all the good things that happened to him. The objective: to teach children to recognize all the good things that happen in their lives
, all they have earned, how privileged they are. And that to thank, they give more value.
