In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Preparing a play for one another, another religious education group, parents, or a wider audience helps the participants take a more active role in the story and helps them identify with the animals. This play could be used as the children's story during an earth day service or other special occasion such as a Blessing of the Animals.
Ask participants to each take a picture and cut it out and glue it to a piece of card stock. Help them glue each card stock picture to a wooden stick.
Assign parts of the play to participants and leaders.
Perform the play with each participant holding up their character stick as they speak.
If you have non-readers, they can hold the character stick while another participant does the reading. If you have more participants than parts to play, you can have more than one character stick per character.
