Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Wonderful Welcome: A Program for Children Grades K-1

Faith In Action: Each One, Teach One

Description of Activity

Arrange for the children to learn something new together. You might invite a volunteer from the congregation or community to lead an arts and crafts activity, teach the children how to plant seedlings, or lead a yoga or dance session. The specific skill is not as important as the process in which the children have opportunities to help one another learn it. If you wish, schedule a second meeting for the children to teach the same skill to another group of children, family members, or an intergenerational gathering of people in your congregation. Invite the same volunteer to lead; this time, engage the children as assistant teachers.
