What is a gratitude stick?

A Gratitude Stick is like the idea of the Native Talking Stick, which is one of several methods we use to help promote the value of gratitude; and using a Gratitude Stick with children can be especially effective in delivering this kind of message! For example, have your child hold the Gratitude Stick and then say two things they are grateful for and something they like about themselves. This daily ritual becomes a fun and interactive way to bring the practice of Gratitude into your child’s life, let alone your own.

When we were children, my mom found an arbutus branch, on to which she carved the word “Gratitude”. We then passed this stick around our dinner table and said two things we were grateful for and one thing we liked about ourselves. It gave us something to hold on to and brought us into the present moment. The Gratitude Stick is a fun way to introduce children into a gratitude practice at an early age when a gratitude journal may be out of reach. It’s not only comforting to have something to hold, our sticks glow in the dark, which adds a little magic to the fun as well.

Through the Adventures of Lucy-loo and Roo, your child will be exposed to the magic and power of gratitude; and then through the tangible use of the Gratitude Stick, they will have an engaging way to share information about their day, build self-esteem and create fun family traditions that will build everlasting memories. You’ll see!
