In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Children practice leadership and stewardship of the web of life by building worm compost bins for the congregation (or helping their families build compost bins for home use).
Build a congregational or a demonstration compost bin together. One family might like to take home the demonstration bin. To encourage families to replicate this project at home, provide materials they will need and create instruction handouts.
Have volunteers take photographs or video to document the project.
Optional: Teach and lead the Decomposition Chorus (Handout 2) to this multi-age group. Offer participants a copy of Handout 2 and ask the children to teach the motions.
At the close of the event, ask the World of Wonder children to lead participants in the song "We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands."
Share the photos or video with the children in a subsequent session.
Ensure that the shared work area is accessible to all.
