In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Ask a small group to act out the Masai story in Activity 2. If there is time, let them use markers on paper bags or card stock to make masks for the elephant, tortoise, rooster, lion and Rain God. To involve more participants, lead the group to think of more roles; lots of different animals could come to drink from the small pond. Invite everyone to make a mask. There are many ways participants might make masks; using simple card stock or small paper bags is probably easiest. A card stock mask can be held in front of the face. A bag mask can be slipped over the hand and held in front of the face or used as a hand puppet.
Leave time for participants to clean up the mask-making supplies and act out the story.
Encourage and assist participants with motor skills limitations, cognitive limitations or limited mobility to choose characters, make masks and act out their parts as they are able.
