We wanted to create something special to foster both old and budding friendships among our children, as well as represent our classroom community as a whole. 

We had the children work in pairs to trace each other's hands and decorate them with bright water colors. We encouraged them to work with friends they might not usually play with. We grouped our older "seniors" with our new younger children and had the seniors support the younger ones with their drawing and painting. 

Next we asked everyone for some examples of what a great friend might say or do to be added along with our collaboration.
