Objective: To teach your child to give and receive appreciation by using the words “thank you.”
About the Game: You can play this game at home or in any setting where you and your child have time to spend together.
How to Play: This is the time to surprise each other with thoughtful actions. Take turns thinking up nice things that you can do for one another. After something is done for you, be sure to say the words “thank you.” Here are some ideas:
- Bring your child his or her favorite book.
- Your child may give you a big hug.
- Bring your child a piece of paper and a set of crayons for coloring.
- Your child may bring you a magazine that you like to read.
