Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Miracles: A Multigenerational Program on Living in Awe and Wonder

Alternate Activity 3: It's a Draw

Part of Miracles

Activity time: 20 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Slips of paper, pencils, and a basket
  • Newsprint, markers, and tape
  • A timer

Description of Activity

Give each person a pencil and slip of paper and ask everyone to write something they think is miraculous. Have them fold the slips to hide their writing and place the slips in the basket.

Form two teams. Each team chooses a member to take a slip of paper from the basket and draw, on a large sheet of newsprint, on the miracle described on the slip of paper. Team members try to guess what the member is drawing. Sound the timer after two minutes (or whatever amount of time you choose). If they guess correctly, the team scores a point. Then, have the second team repeat the process with a new slip of paper chosen by one of their members.

Including All Participants

Allow team members to work with a partner so that anyone with a disability—for example, someone with a reading disability or limited mobility—can fully participate. Another way to include everyone is to give a participant the role of keeping score or collecting slips of paper and then holding the basket.
