Welcoming and Entering

Materials for Activity

  • Rolls of duct tape
  • A ruler, a pencil, and scissors (including left-handed scissors)
  • Optional: Toolbox of Our Faith poster

Preparation for Activity

  • From the materials you have gathered for Activity 3: Duct Tape Lunch Bags, set out rolls of duct tape on a worktable.

Description of Activity

This section is intended for the time before the beginning of a session when participants arrive individually over a period of time (that is, "straggle in").

Welcome participants. Invite them to start tearing or cutting strips of duct tape, twelve inches long, in preparation for making a duct tape lunch bag. A standard size paper lunch bag requires eleven strips of duct tape approximately twelve inches long to cover it. Tell the children to lightly adhere a corner of each strip to the edge of a table or a chair for use later.

Now or later in the session, add a frame of duct tape around the Tools of Our Faith poster to represent today's quality of faith: flexibility.
