Bonus activity # 2: Make your own gratitude jar. Find an empty jar or small container. Write down (or ask someone to help you to write down) on small pieces of paper each thing you are grateful for. For example: "I am grateful for my friends". Then, fold each gratitude paper and put it into the jar or container. Each day, be sure to choose a paper to read (o ask someone to read to you) and remind yourself what you are grateful for.
