In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Using Leader Resource 1, Handprint Garden Mural, as a guide, tell the children they will work cooperatively to paint a garden mural using only their hands (mostly). Each person will make a flower representing themself, using a brush to make only the stem, and using their own hand dipped in paint to make the blossom part of their flower. When the flowers are done, direct the children to use their paint-dipped hands to complete the picture with handprint grass, sky, and sun.
Leave time for everyone to wash their hands.
Take a digital photo of each participant's face, then print and cut out the face and glue it in the center of that child's handprint flower.
Position the mural paper also everyone can reach and decorate it.
