People say thanks to God for giving
          plenty of food.


              a grace = a short prayer to
              say thanks


      Thank   You for the world so sweet,
      Thank   You for the food we eat,
      Thank   You for the birds that sing,
      Thank   You, God, for everything!
      Amen!
 Sometimes the families play games
          after dinner.
Let’s play a game called “Cornucopia”.
