Expressing love and acceptance of others is one of the earliest lessons we teach our children. Fostering that message and exemplifying it is part of our Love Rising event, too. To help you get your kids involved in a meaningful way, we have a few ideas to share. From a simple conversation starter, to a creative activity that will be lots of fun, we hope you make lasting memories together!

Take a Walk on the Beach “From sunrise to sunset” is full of symbolism for our “Love Rising” effort, and we’re blessed to be able to witness some of the most beautiful beginnings and ends to our days along the shores of Lake Ontario. Visit the beach with your family – maybe you’ll want to make it your inspirational spot for observing Love Rising on July 15th, but any day is the perfect day to have a conversation about the symbolism of nature around us. For example, consider the beach rocks. Look at all the different colors and shapes and sizes. Each one is unique and interesting in its own way. And just like the people in our community and in our world, together we make this place a special place to call home. Encourage your kids to consider comparisons and take the conversation from there!
