  • Taking It Home

Preparation for Activity

  • Download and adapt Taking It Home and copy as a handout for all participants (or, email to parents).

Description of Activity

Explain that the session is almost over and that we will now work together as a community to clean the meeting space. Ask everyone to clean up their own area and the materials they were using first, and then to clean another area or help someone else. No one should sit in the circle until the meeting space is clean.

Then bring the group to the circle. Ask them to cross their arms in front of their body before taking the hands of the people next to them. Say "We are tied together in the spirit of peace when we... " and ask anyone who wishes to fill in a word or phrase about how we are tied together in peace. When everyone who wants to share has done so, open the circle by having everyone, while still holding hands, turn to their right, so that everyone is facing out and no longer has their arms crossed in front of their body.

Distribute copies of Taking It Home you have prepared. Thank and dismiss participants.
