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

Materials for Activity

  • Card stock in various colors
  • Scissors, including left-handed scissors
  • Hole punch
  • String or yarn
  • Pencils or markers

Preparation for Activity

  • Create a sample hand ornament: Trace your own hand on card stock, cut out the shape, punch a hole in the top, pass a piece of yarn through the hole, and secure the yarn with a knot so the hand can be hung.
  • Set out sample and materials on work tables.

Description of Activity

As participants arrive, invite them to trace the shape of their hand on card stock, cut out the shape, punch a hole in the top, and pass a piece of yarn through the hole to create a hand-shaped ornament. Tell the children that later they will hang the ornaments on the group wall hanging.

Including All Participants

If any participants have difficulty with small motor control, encourage them to choose a sheet of card stock and hold their hand in place while another person traces the shape. Then cut out the hand shape, punch the hole, and string the yarn for them.
