Alternate Activity 1: Creating a Scavenger Hunt (20 minutes), Session 13: A Matter of Perspective

In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Objects to hide (e.g., stickers, temporary tattoos, canned goods, etc.)
  • Paper and pens/pencils

Preparation for Activity

  • With your religious educator and other leaders, plan when and where the group can create a scavenger hunt for younger children in the religious education program.

Description of Activity

Invite participants, now that they have experienced searching, to send others on a quest. Indicate the objects for them to hide and explain rules for where they can hide them (e.g., at a younger child's eye level). Distribute paper and pencils/pens, and invite the children to hide the objects so they are concealed from view and write clues for the location of the objects. Clues should give hints such as "look up high toward the sky" or "something blue hides me from you."

Including All Participants

Participants who lack the mobility to physically hide objects can suggest hiding places and think of clues.
