“Gratitude Gab” – This game is guaranteed to get your guests talking!
For the guests that have more to say than just, “I am grateful for food”, this is the perfect game! Get a jar or bowl and have a few questions or topics on folded pieces of colored or festive paper. As the meal progresses, have everyone pass around the jar and take turns pulling out a piece of paper and answer the question or sharing the experience the paper asks. Instead of just saying one thing they are grateful for and moving on, these questions will provide conversations and stories that will enrich the lives of those present, deepen you feelings of gratitude, and nourish the heart while you feed your body! I have included a few sample questions below, feel free to use these or come up with your own.
• Describe something lucky that happened to you last year and how your life improved.
• Describe a peak experience from the year, what made it special, and why you are grateful for it.
• Describe a special favor you received, how it helped you, and how it touched you.
• Describe a special gift or talent you have, how you use it, and why you are grateful for it.
• Name someone you know who makes your life better and why.
• Think of something you used today that other people make take for granted.
• What do you appreciate the most about the person sitting next to you?
• Describe something you are particularly grateful for in your life and why.
• Describe something that you do often that makes you happy and why.
• Describe something that happened this past week that you are grateful for and why.
• Describe something you have done that you are particularly proud of and why.
Have a wonderful, special day with your family and friends!
