In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Each child has brought something unique to this session. Their names will be remembered by the others in the group. Pass out the name design signs you have made, saying each name aloud as you go.
Tell the children they are each unique, one-of-a-kind, and can design their name any way they like. You may suggest they color each part of their name with a different color, or color the background behind the letters. The black permanent marker will help the letters stand out.
While the children are coloring, talk about different memories you have of each child. Make statements like, "I sure will remember how Tonya built that great house out of blocks." Or "Tim, I'll remember the bee you cut out when we talked about bee communities." Bring in memories from a variety of sessions, and be sure to tell at least one about each child.
Tell the children they may take home their name designs to remind them about their unique memories of Creating Home.
