'International Day Of Friendship' 30th July




Our 'CST Friendship Group' this week has a theme of 'Friendship', as it is UN 'International Friendship Day' on 30th July. 




INTRODUCTIONS


We asked members to come to the group with stories about their best friend or soul mate. How they met? How much of a part they play in their life? What they enjoy so much about their company? What they most admire about them? Some members brought a photograph to the group with them.




IDIOMS


Next we completed these thirty 'Idioms About Friendship' together and discussed their meanings.



make friends - develop warm feelings for someone


a shoulder to cry on – someone who listens sympathetically


birds of a feather flock together – people who have the same outlook/tastes/interests will be found in each other's company

cross someone’s path – unexpectedly meet someone


like two peas in a pod – very similar


through thick and thin – through all circumstances no matter how difficult


to be as thick as thieves – to be very close or friendly


to be joined at the hip – to be inseparable


to be on the same page/wavelength – to be in agreement


to build bridges – to promote friendly relations between people or groups

a man's best friend is his dog - we often form deep friendships with our faithful and loyal four-legged friends


friends in high places - one who has friends who have important or influential positions


keep your friends close but your enemies closer - if you keep your enemies close to you, by acting friendly with them, you are able to watch them


familiarity breeds contempt - when you know too much about someone you can lose respect for them


absence makes the heart grow fonder - when those you love are physically far away from you, you miss them and think more positively about them


a friend in need is a friend indeed - a person who helps when we are not doing well or have problems is a true friend


strangers are just friends waiting to happen - everyone you meet in your life has the potential to become your friend


a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out - when the going gets tough, the ones that step in and help you are your real friends




We then moved on to our picture and music quiz, which started with a song about best friends.

PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES



You could ask members to paint words they associate with friendship and make a collage.


Or you could make a circle of painted hands, to signify the friendship amongst the group.





Or each member could make their own 'Friendship Flower', which may be more appropriate if social distance is required.






Have a lovely day everyone!
