In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather children at work tables. Tell them they will make their own wands as a symbol for the kind of magic they want to create. Remind them that good magic starts with a good intention. Ask them to take a moment in their own heads to develop an intention — a positive change they want to make. You may ask children to share their intentions with the group.
Now ask if they remember what else is needed to make magic the Unitarian Universalist pagan way. Affirm: focus and energy. Tell them they will have about 15 minutes to focus on their intention and raise some energy by decorating their own wand.
Distribute wands and set out decorating materials.
At least one co-leader should make a wand in order to lead the next activity, Blessing of the Wands.
Children who finish quickly can be invited to make a second wand if there are sufficient supplies.
