Activity 5: Singing "The More We Get Together" (5 minutes), Session 1: On the Threshold

In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program

Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Singing and moving together builds a sense of community among the children. Teach them to sing the song, "The More We Get Together," which is in the public domain. The lyrics are:

The more we get together, together, together

The more we get together, the happier we'll be.

Because your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.

The more we get together, the happier we'll be.

Then, add a game. Ask the group to spread out across the room. Tell them that as soon as they begin singing the song, they should each move from person to person and link arms with everyone they find. Challenge the group to make a chain that includes everyone before they finish singing the song. Say, "One, two, three!" to start the song and the game. You may wish to play this game several times.
