A new resource, entitled “Reconciliation Activities for Children,” was created in response to requests for activities that help children better understand the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada and how they can be part of the reconciliation journey.
The activities are appropriate for children five to eight years of age. They can be adapted for older groups and may be used with Vacation Bible School programs, Sunday schools, youth groups, mid-week programs and even at home by families. This resource has been written with the intention that Indigenous and non-Indigenous children will both find the activities meaningful.
Print copies are available for $5.00. To order, use the online order form under “Justice,” or contact Parasource Distribution at 1-800-263-2664 (product code 1707080401).
