Have you ever caught yourself saying how lucky you are? I do all the time. I think sometimes I (we) give more credit to luck than we do to the tender mercies and blessings of our Heavenly Father. So, with that in mind, I think it would be fun to use the idea of luck vs. blessings.
If you want, bring a few lucky charms...fortune cookie, rabbit's foot, horseshoe, socks, 4-leaf clover, penny, box of Lucky Charms cereal, etc. Explain that some people think that these items can bring luck. Assign each lucky charm one of the following "luckys."
Attach a word strip to each lucky charm with the following statements and songs. If you would like, also create a larger word strip that replaces the word lucky with the word blessed. (i.e. We are blessed to have agency.)

Have a child pick a lucky charm and sing the attached song. At the end of the song, explain that Heavenly Father intentionally blessed us with our bodies, our families, our temples, etc. Attach the word strip to the board that says "We are blessed ..." At the end of singing time, bear testimony that Heavenly Father has blessed us and continues to bless us every day.
