Find a Christmas decoration ball that has a hinged opening or somehow comes apart. Inside place the Friendship ball poem (below) and a small item such as a pair of earrings, a pair of gloves etc. This ball is given to a member who can keep the item inside and add a new one for the next person. They bring the ball with the new treasure inside to the next gathering and pass it on.

The Friendship Ball

A ball is a circle,
No beginning, no end.
It keeps us together.

Like our Circle of Friends.
But the treasure inside, for you to see
is the treasure of friendship

You’ve granted to me.
Today I pass the friendship ball
to you.

Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.
