Write wishes and prayers for the new year, and display in a collage
Large sheet of paper, green paper and felt pens
Draw an outline of a tree trunk on the large sheet (roughly A2 size)
Beavers draw round their hands on the green paper or leaf shaPES
They then write a wish on each hand: one wish for other people, and one wish about improving themselves
Stick all the hands to the large sheet to make a 'wish tree'
Show the Beavers that these wishes can be looked upon as very simple prayers (so long as they aren't wishing for a new Playstation!)
