The Flowers and Fruits

First: Opening prayer - The Spiritist Volunteer will ask one child to read one topic of the “The Lord’s Prayer”.


The Spiritist worker will introduce a box of prayer after the prayer and will ask for one child to volunteer himself/herself to read the prayer for the class. Please ask the child to say his/her words as well, as to complement the opening prayer.

Second: Welcome the children into the session. Say how happy we are to see them there and how important they are for the class. Play hot potato game with the children. When the music stops the child who is holding the hot potato ball will be asked to say how they help the Mother Earth.


Third: Sing songs together; get the children to remain standing but in a circle.

Fourth: Theatre - The Spiritist volunteer will get dressed up like a tree.

The tree will ask if they know how fruits are born: from a little seed to a delicious and healthy fruit. Fruit comes from seeds that are planted, giving rise to a tree or a plant that grows. They have many leaves; at the right time, fruit are born. (sprout – roots – stem – leaves – flour – fruits)

It will also say that all the trees, fruits, flowers and seeds are part of Nature and so God’s Creation. God is the Supreme intelligence and all powerful only Him with His love is able to create all the Nature. Let’s all give thanks to God and also for His creation too!

Fifth: Surprise Box - The Spiritist Volunteer will prepare a box with many kinds of fruits and flowers. Each child will have a turn to pick one picture say if it is a fruit or flower and also say how they called.

Complementary questions:
Do you enjoy eating fruits?
Do you think it’s important to eat fruits? Why so?
What do you think flowers are important for?

Did you notice how different flowers and fruits can be from each other? There are many different types of fruits and flowers as every type is unique, just as we are unique in the eyes of God.

Seventh: Activity:  Clays modelling - The Spiritist Volunteer will bring clay and kids should create their favourite fruit or fruits.

Eighth: Live Theatre - The flower called Maggy http://www.searadomestre.com.br/evangelizacao/flormagalicoring.htm


Tenth: Preparation for the healing time - The Volunteer will place one chair in the middle of the room. Only 2 kids will be called at each time. One child should seat on the chair and the other should be stand up next to the chair. The child positioned on the side should tell the other how he/she should behave during the healing therapy. He/she must deserve the good energy brought from the Superior Spirits, showed by blowing bubbles (soap bubbles), if the child behaved well. Everyone will have a change to participate.

Eleventh: Preparation for closing prayer - Kids should choose a passage from the: Gospel According to the Spiritism for the kids, The Spirits Book for kids or the Heaven or Hell. The volunteer will encourage the others kids to volunteer themselves for reading and give a quickly comment about it.

Twelfth: Closing prayer - One of the children will do a closing prayer; encourage the children to volunteer for this task. If they don’t want to collaborate we could say we will follow the letters of the alphabet. The child’s name that starts with the letter A will do the opening prayer this time. Everybody will have the chance to collaborate.
