You must rise in the presence of an old person and respect the elderly. Leviticus 19:32a
Serve: elder care facilities
Connect: children won’t have a heard time imagining a time they have felt bored, encourage them to think of something that would have made that time more joyful (reading a book, playing a game, drawing a picture, etc.); explain that at many elder care facilities, older adults eat together and often wait quite awhile before being served, which we might imagine can get boring; challenge children to think of how something as simple as a placemat could make waiting more enjoyable — what can they do to turn an ordinary placemat into something an elder may enjoy?
- paper placemats
- give each child white placemats to decorate
- if close to a holiday, challenge kids to decorate the holiday theme
