Description of Activity

Children love to do simple mazes. This maze resembles a labyrinth; there are several ways to get "home." Distribute Handout 2, On the Path Home and set crayons or markers at worktables. Tell the children to imagine they are someplace away from their home. Say in your own words:

 

You have had fun today, doing something you like, but now it is almost time to go home. Draw yourself in the middle, getting ready to go home. If you want, you can draw yourself here in Creating Home. Or, you can pretend you have been doing something else this morning and draw yourself getting ready to go home from there.

Invite them to draw and color themselves first, then complete the maze with a crayon or marker to find their way home.
