Involve children in worship and learning. Unwrapping Little Gifts gives you some basic principles, a few tools, and 30 short dramas useful in Children’s Liturgy of the Word, children’s liturgies or catechesis. The skits are divided into sections based on themes: love, thanks, justice, (w)holiness, sharing, Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter and Hispanic culture. Each skit lists its own particular themes, Scripture references, setting, props, characters, songs, and handouts. The handouts—most of which come ready to photocopy and cut out—reinforce each skit’s gospel message.
