I was doing some research this afternoon about how to teach kids about justice from a Christian perspective.

PBS Teachers has a website on justice activity ideas that I found helpful.

Last week we had an afternoon of celebrating our teenage staff members, who we call StreetLeaders (SLs). They are high school students who work in our after school program, helping with tutoring and working with the kids. Our staff this school year was phenomenal!

The kids did a skit of impressions of the SLs, which was hilarious. Then we played a game where the SLs wore a posterboard and the kids wrote encouraging things, which also ended up being hilarious. One of the gems for a SL was, “You like to eat.” Um..Okay?!

Then, we gave gifts to each SL that reminded us of their personality or a funny experience with them. And finally, we ended with cupcakes. I tried to be creative and spell out “We Love You” in cupcakes….it didn’t really work, but at least I tried. Love is in the details, right?!
