This weeks make is one that Mr Pixie did with our girls.
We are leaders in our church creche and for a weekend this month our church is taking part in a 24/7 prayer chain. This is part of a global initiative from 24-7 Prayer , there are currently 108 prayer chains taking place in 25 countries. To prepare our little preschoolers for this Mr Pixie wanted to make some prayer pots with the children (Miss P had done something similar with her Rainbows group) so our Miss P and Miss E were the guinea pigs.
The finished pots contain sticks on which prayer points are written, the child can pick out a stick and pray for whatever is written on the stick.
The materials required are: a disposable cup, coloured jumbo lolly sticks, glittery foam shapes, self adhesive foil paper, scissors and a pen.
The cup can be decorated however you choose with the paper and foam shapes (self adhesive paper and paper rules out the need for PVA glue – bonus!).
Here’s my girls decorating their pots and sticks.
At the top of each stick a foam shape was stuck and a prayer point written on the lower end of the stick. Prayer points can be anything e.g. family, friends, animals, school …
I just love these coloured sticks, the colours are so vibrant. I’ll have to think up another project for them as they came in a pack of 100!
So here are the finished prayer pots, Miss P’s pot:
and Miss E’s pot:
This was a great make for keeping little hands busy and well done to Mr Pixie for organising it.
