Active Appreciation Activity: Secret Hearts 

Choose one person you want to show appreciation to this week. You can choose a relative, a teacher, a friend, or anyone else who helps to take care of you. Cut out a few heart-shaped papers, and on each little heart, write something that you appreciate about that person. Try to be creative in what you say. Rather than writing, “I love you for being my mommy,” why not say something new that you might not have told your mother before, like, “I love your pretty smile, Mommy!”

Now, place the appreciation hearts somewhere where this person will find them. You can place them under his or her plate at meal time, or somewhere else where he or she would notice them.

Bible fun: Post this somewhere so you can easily read it each morning to start your day:

  • Love will cover a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8 NKJV)
