In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants work as a team to make a picture about their gifts.
Form small groups at work tables or on the floor. Give each group a sheet of newsprint, a set of markers, and collage materials. Explain that each group will make a gift machine. Ask them, as a group to draw a machine in the middle of the newsprint. On one side, ask the participants to show themselves going into the machine. On the other side of the machine, tell participants to show what gifts they would like to have. For instance, one participant may wish they could play the guitar for people; they might draw a guitar or find a picture of one to paste coming out of the machine. When every group is finished, gather the entire group together and have each small group explain their machines.
Process the activity with these questions:
Leaders may need to help tie knots or bows on the sticks. For younger participants or participants with physical limitations, ask other participants or leaders help make a talking stick.
