A refugee is someone who has had to leave their home because of danger.  Sometimes they leave because of war or because their home is no longer safe for them. 

If you had to leave your home in a hurry, what would you take with you?  What if you could only take 6 items from the table in front of you?

What if you could only take 3?  If you would like to, write or draw a thought or a prayer for a refugee and put it in the rucksack.
