Hugs are a great way to show each other how much we care. Throw
in an encouraging cheer and soon the whole church will know what a
loving and thankful group of kids they have been blessed with!
Say: I'm sure you've heard of a bear hug, but
how about a prayer hug?
Form a circle and have kids "huddle" by putting their arms over
the shoulders of the people next to them.
Lead this cheer: Two, four, six, eight. Thank you, God,
we appreciate __________.
Then have each person in the circle shout out one thing he or
she is thankful for.
End with the group cheering: Yea, God!
