Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Creating Home: A Program on Developing a Sense of Home Grounded in Faith for Grades K-1

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Creating Home

Most of us, by adulthood, have lived in more than one home. What have your homes been like? Why have you moved? How did it feel to move?

If you have asked children to bring a transitional object with them today, prepare to lead their sharing. Do you have a transitional object? Did you bring it? Did you have one (or more) when you were younger? Did it make you feel safe? Secure? Loved? Remember those feelings.

You can help the children in Creating Home feel all these things. Meeting with them regularly and speaking with them respectfully and lovingly will leave a lasting impression upon them. You help shape their "home" in this program.

If you brought a transitional object with you, place it somewhere in the room where you can see it but it will not be disturbed during the session activities.
