In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Explain that the children will join hands in a way that they can "keep." Say something like:
Today we are going to make a Helping Hands Wreath. We will trace each of our hands and put them together. We will hang our wreath when we are together to remind us of our commitment to helping.
Give everyone (leaders can also participate) a sheet of construction paper, varying colors to make the wreath look festive. Ask children to trace both of their hands and help them as needed. Once the hands are traced, ask them to cut them out and write their first name on them, again helping as needed.
Collect all the hands and gather the group around a work table as you assemble the hands into a wreath shape on the poster board base. Glue the hands so that all the fingers are displayed outward.
