I am sure most of you must have started your summer vacations. After a whole year of hard work I am sure you all deserve it. Mum and dad must have planned out some exiting trips or classes for you .
Here is something I would like to ask you to think about..
When you are outside, have you ever looked around and seen all the wonderful things around you..the flowers, the trees, the sky, the clouds, the birds, insects, the different sounds and colours?
Have you ever for a minute wondered what the world would be without them?
There is beautiful hymn called ‘All things bright and beautiful’ about exactly what I’m saying. Press play below or Click here to see the hymn.
Now aren’t you grateful that God created all these things?
So our next pearl of wisdom is GRATITUDE
Gratitude means being thankful each and every day for all that you have your – your five senses, your parents and this magical world that we live in. Promise to care and appreciate everything. Now whenever your parents have time, go with them to a garden and see and hear all these wonderful things around you.

We will start making a necklace with our little pearls and remember them through this wonderful journey, our life. As you grow up you will see and understand these values in a different light.
This is how our necklace will look.
Today’s value is REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE represented with this symbol.
This sounds very big but very simply it means trying to reduce waste, learning how to handle it and so protecting our environment. The environment is everything around us – air, water, plants and land. We need a healthy environment for health and happiness.
How can we help in this?
Well very easy. Have you noticed that in the craft that we have learnt we use old material from the house?
Here are more things that you can do with waste material instead of throwing it away.
You can cut and use old cards to make your birthday invitations or cards to wish mum and dad.
Old boxes can be decorated to make a pencil stand for your teacher or a dust bin.
Instead of throwing away your old toys you can give them to your maid.
I am sure you have many more ideas, why don’t you share them? Add a comment to this blog if you have any ideas.
So you see we can help to protect our environment and have fun as well.
