Lockdown activities for youth and schools

Lockdown youth and schools activities

Love never fails. Even in the darkest moments, love gives hope. Love compels us to stand together in solidarity with our neighbours near and far.

Wherever we live, we are going through this Coronavirus pandemic together. Our children and young people are not physically attending school, organisations or youth fellowships, instead of staying at home and settling into a new normal of online activities. We want to provide you with the opportunity to engage with your children and young people around issues of injustice and poverty. 

We have created two easy to use resources to download and use at home. These have been created and specially adapted to be used online during lockdown.

For young people aged 11 and over there is a resource called ‘Belong’ designed to be used in Youth groups which will explore issues of faith, social justice, and how we can put our faith into action.

For children of primary school age, we have created a worksheet that looks at climate change and rainfall in Kenya. There are puzzles, stories, and activities for your child to complete centred around geography and science. Grow with Us challenges your child to grow seeds and share their progress with us, along with a competition about the trees you see on your daily walks. With a prize up for grabs, why not click below for more information.

Welcome to Belong

For youth leaders we have Belong, which is a 10 session guide for those working with groups of young people aged 11 and over. The sessions explore issues of faith, social justice, and how we can put our faith into action.
