Alternate Activity 1: River Poetry (15 minutes), Workshop 1: Gather the Spirit

In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Paper, pencils and (optional) clipboards

Preparation for Activity

  • Distribute paper and pencils to participants.

Description of Activity

This activity can be done immediately after Activity 4 in this workshop, Watery Me: Meditation. Invite participants to write short poems about water to post around your River Scene. This option may particularly engage participants who do not really like to draw. If participants want more direction, suggest poems about loving water, saving water and helping water.

Including All Participants

Be inclusive of very young participants. Pair them with a co-leader or an older participant who can engage them to talk about what they like about water, or how we can help protect water, and write down their dictated words. Then the partners can decorate the paper together.
