Web of gratitude

  • Youth playing web of gratitude game

Purpose

Recognize the love and service of others in the class, quorum, or group.

Description

Have the youth sit in a circle with one person holding a ball of yarn or string. Have that person identify a trait, experience, or act of service involving someone else in the circle for which he or she is grateful. Holding onto part of the yarn, he or she then tosses the yarn ball to the person identified. That person then repeats the process, also holding onto a portion of the yarn. Continue to play until a web is formed, connecting the group. (See Kristin W. Belcher, “Web of Gratitude,” Ensign, June 2006). Talk about the ways that we become unified as we love and serve one another. You could also show youth.lds.org videos about service to quorum or class members.
