The Newest Addition to Our Godly Play Classroom

We added this lined basket filled with five 36″ x 36″ playsilks in liturgical colors: white for Christmas and Easter, red for Pentecost, Sarum blue (more or less….) for Advent, purple for Lent, and green for the Great Green Growing Sundays after Epiphany and Pentecost.

I don’t know how the children will use them, but it will be fun to see what happens!

    I want to know too! What did they do with the play silks? Have they been helpful or distracting? Tell all!

      Sigh. We have four teachers in “my” class (3rd-5th grades). We have two of us there every Sunday, and all four of us share the roles of storyteller and doorkeeper.

      Now, occasionally the other teachers report that when asked to add to the story (in the 7 Faces of Easter, or something) the children will take the appropriately colored scarf and do something profound. I believe one child took the baby Jesus from the manger and tenderly wrapped him in the white playsilk and set Him next to the story. Others have reported occasional things like that.

      When I am in the classroom, they seem to run as fast as they can from one side of the classroom screaming, trailing the silks behind them.

      So, I guess they’re both helpful and distracting…. Each group is different, though. We’ll see.
