It's that time in the rhythm of the school year when things can kind of slump. Decided it was time to do a choir project~so we created bracelets. The idea is to go around the circle and to put a bead in a cup that triggers some association with the one person. By the time the cup goes all the way around, the person has the makings of a bracelet and hopefully, some unexpected and hope-giving words.
I've done this a few times~usually in a retreat setting and with high school students, so wasn't sure how it would go. It turned out to be moving and funny and all of them were excitedly wearing their beads as they left class today.
A great way to use beads on this 2016 Mardi Gras!
