Description of Activity

Invite everyone to gather in a circle and hold hands. Start by squeezing the hand to your right and saying: "Today I found love, today I gave love." Lead the group to move the hand squeeze around the circle until everyone has had a chance to say the words.

Then, invite the group to unclasp hands lead them to say the closing words in unison:

Be good to yourself.

Be excellent to others.

Do everything with love.

Including All Participants

If participants do not want to hold hands, invite them to just say the words to the person to their right. If needed, repeat the words aloud with each child.
