Use this simple toddler prayer craft to encourage your toddler to pray for their family and friends. Teaching our little ones to pray can begin as naturally as saying bedtime prayers with them each night. It also is something for them to see anytime you face a difficulty or want to give the Lord praise.
When I think of teaching a toddler or preschooler about prayer I always remember the story of Susannah Wesley with her hordes of little ones around her
when she needed to pray she would throw her apron over her face and pray
right there as she was working.
You will need: thick tempura paint mixed and placed in a shallow tray, white card, white paper, scissors, happy face stickers, two hole punch and string or raffia.
Cover your working area with newspaper and make sure your toddler has old clothes on or is covered with a simple apron. Let them dip their hands into the paint. Help them to make two hand prints (left and right) on the white card. Set aside and wait for them to dry. (Just a note if working with paint and little ones is not for you rather trace your childrens hands onto coloured card)
While you are waiting, trace around their hands and then cut out 4 hand templates from white paper.
Chat with them as you go about people you can pray for. Do you have family or friends that are ill? Do they have a friend they can pray for? Write their names on the pages (hand templates) you have made but leave space in between for the happy face sticker for when their prayers are answered.
