In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Name tags
  • Markers or crayons

Preparation for Activity

  • Set up tables and chairs.

Description of Activity

This activity is appropriate when participants do not arrive in a group but arrive individually before the session begins.

Welcome participants and invite them to sit down and write and decorate their name tags. A second co-leader should greet new parents and explain the plans for the day.

Including All Participants

This is an excellent time for co-leaders to notice the abilities and temperament of each child. Note how they respond to you. Are they shy and reticent? Are they anxious and jumpy? Invite a parent to share any concerns and pertinent information, including information about children's allergies. Do you have a sign-in sheet? While the children settle in with the Opening activity, co-leaders should review the names of the children attending and share any issues that may need special attention during the session.
