Description of Activity

Brainstorm ways to be kind to others. How do members of the group respond with kindness and love? Write responses on the newsprint.

Invite the participants to find photos in the magazines that show people using the responses they came up with that show kindness and love. Have children work on their own or in small groups to make collages with the pictures they find and words of love and kindness.

Have everyone share the collages they made. Invite each child or small group to say why they chose the images and words they did.
