Dear Kids Rich in Gems friends,
We have 13 pages this month - made with love by Auntie Lili Shang. We are honing our creative process each month. Combining our skills to brainstorm, research, create, write, edit, do layout and design, draw pictures and edit them, and even communicating with families, teaching teams, communities and institutions around the world - to hear what is working and what is needed - and to offer these pages for those families and communities who can benefit from a set like this.
We are using three quotations from the Bahá'í Holy Writings:
"So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth."
"Be as angels in the world and beacons of light."
"Let your eye be chaste, your hand faithful, your tongue truthful and your heart enlightened."
Please feel free to use these pages all through the month of Light.
- You can print them very inexpensively in black and white.
- And they can be put into a folder to protect them and make them easy to refer to again and again.
- And please note, the Gems Kids Talk section - is wonderful for helping children understand how to prepare for Feast and think about the Holy Writings, service opportunities, arts and crafts that one may wish to bring to Feast and share with the community and other ideas. This section could also be used as material for a skit - all helping children express goals and vision of building community around the Bahá'í calendar.
With warmest greetings,
The Mine Rich in Gems Team
