Active Appreciation Activity: Hand by Hand 

You can use patterned or colored paper for this project. Trace the hand of each person in your family or group of friends. Inside the hand shape, write one or two special things that this person adds to your family or friendship. It can be something you love about that person, something he or she does that you admire, or a reason why you’re glad this person is part of your family or one of your friends.

Make sure everybody gets to see the final product so that this person can light up in smiles because of your active appreciation of him or her! 

Bible fun: Post this verse inside your notebook, closet, or bathroom cabinet as a reminder:

  • Do everything in love. (1 Corinthians 16:14 NIV)
