Welcoming and Entering, Session 8: Love is Accepting

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

Materials for Activity

  • Drawing paper, and color markers or crayons

Preparation for Activity

  • Set paper and markers/crayons at work tables.

Description of Activity

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

Welcome children. Invite them to find a seat at a work table, take some paper, and draw activities they enjoy doing. A second adult should greet new parents and explain the plans for the day.

If children do this activity, be sure to give them an opportunity before the session begins to share what they have drawn.

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? As the children settle in, co-leaders should review the names of the children attending and share any issues that may need special attention during the session.
