For the children to help clean up the area around the parish by picking up litter
The children will be able to give examples of how they care for God's creation.
For each child:
Obtain permission from your catechetical leader to take the children on a walk. Some children may be allergic to latex so purchase non-latex gloves.
Supervise what the children are picking up to make sure they don't pick up something that could hurt them (for example, broken glass).
Tell the children not to pick up anything with their bare hands.
When walking around the neighborhood, make sure that the children stay close together. Watch out for cars, bikes, and other hazards.
If your group meets in the evening, you may not want to do this activity because it may be too dark.
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly
