In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants will help with chores in their meeting room.
Invite the children to help you fill in the chores on the sign. For each chore, use a short phrase (e.g., "clean up") and a symbol (e.g., a picture of a broom). This will allow participants to read the Helping Hands sign in word or symbol.
List four to six jobs on the chart. Then have participants write their names in a hand print of their choice. Explain how the chart will work; you might say:
Each time we meet, some of your hand prints will be next to jobs. If your handprint is on the sign, you will help with that chore.
Depending on the size of the group, rotate assignments each time you meet, or monthly. The chores might include:
If a participant cannot write their name on hand prints, use dots to outline the name so the child can write it by connecting the dots. If a participant cannot write, write their name for them while saying aloud each letter as you write it.
