In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
If you have time before Activity 8: Introduction to the "Gems of Goodness" Project, this cooperative treasure hunt gives children a chance to stretch and move while hunting for and gathering the "gems of goodness" they will use in the following activity.
This treasure hunt is cooperative in that each child will be allowed to find three gemstones. Gather the children and give each a small sandwich bag. Show them some of the mosaic gemstones and tell them:
These are "gems of goodness," and they are hidden all around this room. When I say "Go!" you can start looking. After you have found three gems of goodness, you may sit down and watch. Or, you may ask other children if they would like some help finding theirs. We'll come back together in a circle once everyone has three gems of goodness.
