You have to have a brave group to try this but it is a blast if it is done right!
As fun affirmation activity, students substitute one of the parts of the song the 12 Days of Christmas. They are to make the gift in the song to be something that they would love to give the group or one member in the group. For example they could sing “on the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me “a pizza topped with pepperoni” – This may get tricky so you could assign numbers to the first 12 people brave enough to participate. Leaders could help younger youth who may struggle with this.
When the group members know each other if can be a fun way to recognize the interests of the students in the group.
