In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the children in a circle in the storytelling area and show them the story basket. Say something like:
This is our story basket. I wonder what is in it today?
Take the story-related items from the basket, one at a time, and pass them around. Objects that are fragile or cannot easily be passed around can be held up for all to see and then placed on the altar/centering table or any table or shelf.
Sound the chime or rain stick. When the sound has completely disappeared, tell or read the story, "Growing Green," which introduces the Green Sanctuary program and how one congregation, the First Unitarian Church of St Louis, engaged all ages in working together.
Fidget objects, described in Session 1, Leader Resource 1, can provide a non-disruptive outlet for anyone who needs to move or who benefits from sensory stimulation.
