In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity introduces the graphic representation of four kinds of elemental power we embody (earth, air, fire, and water) which the group will build as the program proceeds. At the beginning of each four-session block, the children decorate a quadrant of the circle-shaped graphic to illustrate the new element. At the end of each session, the children add a small circle to the border of the quadrant they are exploring. Each quadrant has four circles with words that lift up aspects of that element's power; today's circle frames the word "connection," a part of earth power.
Tell the group:
We'll have chances to explore four kinds of power in this program: earth power, air power, fire power, and water power. Today we'll start a mural by decorating the bottom left area with symbols of earth power.
Distribute paper or fabric and markers, magazines and scissors, and found objects or other decorations you have obtained. Invite the children to decorate a piece which you will then help them attach to the "earth" section of the mural. Explain how you will help participants use the glue gun, if you have one.
Save several minutes to engage the group in clean-up.
