UU@Home Summer Activity Packet

UU rituals and practices: every day for every age.

“…ritual is less about profound transitions and more about daily practices…They organize our emotional lives, prompt us to count our blessings along with our grievances, remind us to look up and out more often…

They offer a sort of gentle time outside of time.”

-Courtney E. Martin on the onBeing blog from September 4, 2015

Creating “gentle time outside of time” is sometimes easier said than done.

Life gets busy and making time to explore something new can often feel overwhelming! But starting a new ritual or practice doesn’t have to be an overly serious or complicated endeavor; we can hold space for grounding and centering in simple yet profound ways. We hope that this summer activity guide helps you and your family find a few fun and easy practices to weave into your everyday lives.

Ideas for how to use this guide:

  • Pick one day each week to try one of the practices in this guide; write your reflections in the space provided.
  • Call a family meeting and pick out four in a row that you would like to try this summer to get BINGO!
  • Use this guide as a check-in sheet at the end of each day; which of these things did we do today? Which would we like to do tomorrow?
  • Post pictures from your adventures on the WBUUC Families Facebook page and watch for videos each week with more tips!
  • Don’t forget to turn in your bingo sheet by September 12 to get a special gift!
