Description of Activity

Participants experience the story in a calm, fun way that emphasizes some story details.

Ask participants to sit on the blankets or towels. Ask if they have ever been to a family picnic. Explain that the story today is about different kinds of families at a picnic.

Read the story and process with these questions:

  • Why did Ruben think his family wasn't a real family?
  • Is there only one kind of family?
  • Is it right to treat families differently?
  • How can we treat all families fairly?
  • What did you learn about families?
