Focus On Blessings


  • Small pebbles (1 for each child)
  • Small candies (1 for each child)



  1. Give each child a pebble and a little candy.
  2. Ask the children to place the pebbles in their shoes and the candy in their mouths.
  3. Take them on a short walk.
  4. After the walk, ask the group about their experience. Most children will dwell on the discomfort of the pebble and say little about the good taste of the candy.
  5. Explain that sometimes we focus on the small difficulties (pebbles) that are part of life and forget the good things (candy) that surround us.
  6. Finally, discuss the importance of counting the blessings of our lives.
