Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Spirituality and the Arts in Children's Programming: A Resource for Religious Educators

Some combination activities

  • With drama or movement: Have the children act out stories they have created, or use movement to express the feelings in writing. Children can pair off and respond to each others' work.
  • With art: Create small books of poems or stories with paintings or drawings. This project can be a group activity or an individual work.


Any type of paper may be used. If you will be doing a great deal of writing in the class you may wish to have a notebook for each child, with some extras for new children. Have pencils and pens available and crayons and makers for children who wish to add drawings to their work. If possible, provide clipboards for children who want to sit away from the table to write
