This Little Light - About Me Activity

This Little Light ActivityA simple activity to recognize the special traits that we have.  It's a nice activity to do at the end of the year...  The candles are Christmasy and the being proud and letting our "little lights" shine make great new year's resolutions for young children. 

In a classroom, daycare or church setting a group of these make a nice bulletin board.

You can explain to the children that "traits" are like little lights that are special to us.  They can be things you can see like your hair color or your height or they can be inside things like the sound of your laugh or that you're good at math.

"This Little Light of Mine" is a simple song you can sing to reinforce this activity.

Song Lyrics:

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine;
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine;
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine;
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
