In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell participants they are going to give the gift of time to the younger children. Point out the items you have gathered for this purpose and ask for volunteers who might like to read a story to younger children; help younger children with a craft, modeling clay, or a puzzle; or play a game with younger children. Record their choices on newsprint; each child should sign up to do at least one activity.
Have the children help you carry the supplies to the room you are visiting.
Enjoy an informal play time. Allow the children to switch activities if they wish. If the older children get distracted from their role, redirect them toward ways they can share time with a younger child.
Leave time to invite the children to help you gather the supplies and tidy up the younger children's space.
Return to the meeting space and ask the group to discuss their time with the younger children, with these questions.
