Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

People make covenants to express respect and care for one another. This activity uses a safety theme and the opportunity to sing together to reinforce the message that the promises of a covenant help our whole group stay safe and work and play well together.

Gather the children to sing. Tell them:

Sometimes a song can help us remember the promises we make to others. Do you know any songs like that? Songs that are easy to remember, where the words are about how we can stay safe, or how we agree to treat other people when we are playing together, in school together, at home or here at church?

Allow some suggestions; some children may offer to sing a song they know. You may want to lead the group in singing one of their contributions. Or, lead the children in singing one or more safety songs you have prepared.
