In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Travel to the local cemetery you have selected. Gather in a circle and ask the children what they know about cemeteries. Say, in your own words:
Cemeteries are special places where people can be buried when they die. Some people come to a cemetery to visit their loved ones who have died, to remember them and place flowers on their tomb. We will plant flowers here, so new life can grow from the old life.
Have children plant the bulbs or seeds in the location selected.
Debrief the experience with questions such as:
Make sure the planting site is fully accessible to everyone in the group.
