Welcoming and Entering, Session 4: Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

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

Materials for Activity

  • Blank paper, one for each participant plus a few extra
  • Yarn or string, scissors (including left-handed scissors), and hole punch(es)
  • Optional: Markers, pens, or color pencils

Description of Activity

Encourage early arriving participants to help you by making "affirmation badges" to use later in the session. Instruct them to punch two holes in a sheet of paper, cut a piece of yarn long enough to hang the paper around a person's neck without choking them, loop the yarn through the holes in the paper, and tie knots to fasten the yarn to the paper. If time allows, invite participants to decorate the borders (leaving plenty of room in the middle).

Including All Participants

If any participant lacks small motor skills, assign them a step you know they can do and make sure they have one or more partners to work with.
