Alternate Activity 1: Building and Decorating a More Permanent Clubhouse, Session 4: Be Fair

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Supplies such as large pieces of plywood, 2x4s, nails, hammers, large pieces of cloth, rug remnants, pillows, large cardboard boxes, and paint/paintbrushes

Preparation for Activity

  • Check with your director of religious education and/or congregational board members to identify limitations and guidelines for your building plan. Select an appropriate location for a permanent structure.
  • Optional: Invite a guest who has home construction experience to co-lead this activity.

Description of Activity

Using your selected materials, build a very large permanent structure in the space you have selected in consultation with your director of religious education and building committee. Children can help hammer, paint, create curtains, hang artwork, and otherwise decorate the clubhouse.

If building a structure is not an option, consider decorating a corner of a room that can be dedicated for the duration of the Faithful Journeys program. If the room they meet in has enough space, the club might "nest" for a few weeks using large cardboard boxes.
