This is a great activity for children who are grieving. It allows them to to build a heart, piece by piece the honor and remember the special people in their lives who have died. Even though someone might not be with us, we still remember pieces of them all the time. This activity can be completed individually or within a small group.
Pieces of You Activity:
Take your brightly colored paper and cut it into smaller pieces. Take each piece of colored paper and write a special memory or quality about the special person who died. Glue it onto the heart printout. Piece by pieces, you will fill the heart with special memories. Once complete, hang the heart up and every time you look at it, you will be reminded about all the pieces of your special person.
