This week, see if you can find a local labyrinth to walk with your kids. You can search here or ask around. The one near us is in a park and has a nature theme, so it is not listed in the religious or spiritual directories.
The unicursal (one way in) nature of labyrinths is intriguing to kids who must stay focused as they wind around the space. We giggled and ran (not appropriate in a church, tsk, tsk!) and wondered how we ended back out at the edge and where exactly the unseen route was.
Have you walked or made labyrinths with your children?
If this activity sparks the imagination, you can go further.
You can mow a labyrinth in your yard.
Read the Greek myth of the Theseus and the Minotour
Watch the Jim Henson movie Labyrinth.
Check out the Labyrinth Society's website for kids.
We love labyrinths and mazes. Thanks for the links. Now that we are in a new place I forgot to check out the ones near us.ReplyDelete
