This craft was inspired through a few different things at church. Teaching our children to pray is one of the most important habits we can help them form. Where do you pray? Do your children see you pray? Why is it important to take the time to pray? Why so we close our eyes and fold our hands? Do we have to close our eyes and fold our hands for God to hear us? Well, no of course not, but especially when we are little or when there is just too much distraction it is best for us to close out the world around us and come to a place where it is just you and the Lord. This is a little door hanger that can be printed on card stock and panted or colored and then hung on the child’s door to remind them to pray.
Objective: Children will make door hanger to remind them to pray.
- Templates of door hangers
- Water colors
- Paint brushes
Time: 5-10 min + drying time
- Cut out the door hangers.
- Pass out the door hangers to the children. Read it out loud to them. Tell them they are making it to hang on a door nob (you may demonstrate it on the classroom doorknob) so that they can remember to pray for everything and especially people’s salvation just as Peter and John did in Acts 4.
- Fill cups up with water and pass out the watercolors and brushes. Let the children paint their door hanger and set aside to dry.
