Activity Days: Each One of Us Is Unique

This idea came from by Stefani Neeley

We played a game with one girl in the center while the other girls are sitting in a circle around her in chairs. The girl in the center says something about herself, ex: I have brown eyes then everyone who also has that in common with the girl in the center has to stand up and change seats including the girl in the center. The girl left standing is it and she states something about herself and it continues. Next we read The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf, it's about a box of crayons who cannot get along with each other because of their difference and then are shown how wonderful each one really is. We then talked about difference and similarities of the girls in our own group and how special each one of them is to us. Next everyone was given a snack size baggy full of one type of treat one girl had cereal, another chocolate chips and so on. On their own their still great but when we mixed everything together it was great! They all got their baggy refilled with the mix and enjoyed their treat!
