In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants make a framed picture of a person they do not know to illustrate the first Principle concept that each and every person is special, whether or not we know them, and whoever they are.
Invite children to choose a picture and glue it to a piece of cardboard, then glue a border of tongue depressors around the picture. Make sure each participant glues one tongue depressor with words on their border.
Place a strip of adhesive magnetic tape on the cardboard back of each child's picture. Invite them to take their pictures home to display on the refrigerator.
As participants work, discuss that when we see a picture we really do not know anything about the person in it except their appearance. Their faces might show an emotion, but we do not have much other information. Ask these questions as they work and complete their project.
