Thanksgiving Activity with M&M's

I'm Thankful for...

This is a fun way to get people thinking about things they are thankful for.

I think it would work great at a Thanksgiving dinner or for any youth group or small group.

The instructions are easy:

1. Have a bowl of M&M's, small bowls for each person and a scoop ready (as well as the free printable below, but keep it hidden until the activity begins);

2. Tell people to take a scoop of M&M's for an activity.

3. Then distribute this free printable.


4. As the printable instructs - For each red M&M they have, they have to share about a spiritual blessing they are thankful for

For each orange M&M they have, they have to tell about a freedom they are thankful for

For each green M&M they have, they have to tell about a thing in nature they are thankful for

For each brown M&M they have, they have to tell about a physical object they are thankful for

For each blue M&M they have, they have to tell about a freedom they are thankful for

For each yellow M&M they have, they have to tell about a small thing that makes their day brighter.

As they share about each M&M, then can then eat them.  This process can take a while and people who took big scoops start to feel stressed about coming up with things, so it's ok to go on as long as you want, and then say you'll quit after another round.  It gets kind of funny if you have a lot of one color, you have to start being creative!
