Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Sing to the Power: A Social Justice Program for Children Grades 4-5

Alternate Activity 2: Closing Celebration

Activity time: 40 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Snacks and paper goods
  • Any materials required for the games you choose

Preparation for Activity

  • Review past sessions of Sing to the Power and identify games the participants enjoyed. Remind yourself of the rules for these games and their connection to earth, air, fire, or water power.
  • Obtain snacks and paper goods for a party. Make sure the snacks you provide are suitable for the entire group; avoid items that any participants cannot have.

Description of Activity

If you have time at the end of the main ritual activities, or if you would prefer to close the program less formally, look through previous sessions for games the participants enjoyed. Explain that the group will play games from previous sessions as an end-of-program party. At the conclusion of each game, ask participants what they remember about the context in which they originally played the game, and the kind of power the game relates to.

End with a celebratory snack.
