Alternate Activity 1: Observation Game (15 minutes), Session 9: Ask Questions

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Dress-up items such as scarves; necklaces; bracelets; shoes; adult-size dresses, sweaters, and blazers; funny glasses (avoid hats or other items that might transmit head lice)

Preparation for Activity

  • Collect enough dress-up items so every participant may use several.

Description of Activity

Ask participants to put on some dress-up clothes items. When everyone is ready, encourage the children to look very closely at one another. Have one volunteer leave the room. While the volunteer is gone, have another volunteer make changes to their "outfit," some obvious (such as removing glasses) and some less obvious (such as moving a bracelet from one wrist to the other). Then, call the first volunteer back into the room. Invite them to try to figure out who changed their outfit, and how. Repeat the process with new volunteers.
