In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Throughout this program participants will learn how to help care for the Earth. In this activity, participants will begin their work locally in a familiar place, cleaning up the grounds.
Bring children to the designated area and explain that cleaning up and taking care of our yards is one way we take care of the Earth. Invite them to help clean up all litter. Point out that litter is not healthy for animals and birds. As appropriate, they can help remove weeds, rake or otherwise tend the grounds.
When you are finished, gather briefly in a circle. Go around the circle and have each participant complete the following sentence: "Today I helped take care of the Earth by... "
Close by singing "We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands."
Be certain the area you select is accessible for all.
