No tape, No staples Prayer Chains

Heart Chain Diagram

This chain can be used to teach children about the importance of prayer. Make two chains, one for prayer requests and one for prayers answered. Have your children write their prayer requests and the date on the front of the hearts and link them together under a piece of paper that says "Prayer Requests". Start another chain for prayers answered.

When a prayer has been answered remove the link from the "Prayer Requests" chain, write the date it was answered, and put it on the "Prayers Answered" chain. Your children will begin to see how God answers their prayers.

 

What you will need:

Different colors of construction paper or typing paper, Scissors, Pen

 

Heart Chain Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

How to Make: 

1. Print out the Pattern.

2. Cut out the pattern and trace it onto another sheet of paper.  Cut on the solid lines. (Save time by cutting 4 to 5 links at a time by layering the paper.) 

3. Cut open the "Y" shaped lines in the center of the link being careful not to cut all the way through. To make cutting the slit easier, fold down the handle so that the lines overlap trying not to crease the paper to much. Cut through the paper, unfold, and finish cutting the line. 

4. To add a new link just slide the bottom heart of the chain behind and through the slit on the new link.

You can also use this craft as a memorization tool. Have your children write one word of the Bible verse on each heart and then chain them together in order.

Paper Cup Phones Craft and Bible Verse Review Game

Paper Cup Phone Craft and Bible Verse Review Game

 

What you will need:

9 oz. Paper Party Cups

String

Sharp Object to Punch Holes

Paper

Colored Pencils

Stickers (If you aren't using the printable pattern, you can have your children decorate their cups with stickers.)

What to do:

1. Before class print out the cup cover patterns and make copies. (A pattern for the cup covers are available to members on The Resource Room.

2. Make enough paper cup phones so that you have one for every child. Poke holes in the bottom of cups with a large needle. Thread kite string or other string through the holes from the outside to the inside of the cup using the needle to poke the spring through. Pull the string through the hole with tweezers. Tie knots in the end of the string and cut off the end of the string up to the knot. Pull the string back through the cup so that the knot is tight up against the bottom of the cup. Thread the other end of the string through another cup. Make the strings about 6 feet long.

3. In class have your children color the cup cover pictures and then tape them to the cups. If you aren't using the cup cover patterns, you can just have your children decorate the cups with stickers or magic markers.

4. Have your children sit or stand in two lines that are opposite each other. Each child should have a cup from his set of phones and a cup from another child's set in his hands. The first child should hold a cup from the teachers set in his hand. The teacher speaks through a cup to the first child who has the other cup to his ears. The next child repeats what the teacher said to the child opposite him. Keep going until all the children have had a turn. Tell the children that they should be speaking through their own cups and listening with another child's cup. This way they are not putting their mouths on the other child's cup.

Remind your children that they have to hold the cups so the string is tight (don't let it sag in the middle) and put the cups up against their cheeks with their mouths inside the cup for the phones to work properly. Have them practice telling each other and listening to hear the Bible verse. Also remind them not to touch the string with their hands when holding the cups. These phones work very well if your children use them properly. It is hard for younger children to keep the string tight as they hold the cups so you may want to talk to each child through a different set of cups if they are having a hard time.

sunday school diagram for puppet hair bible craft

2. Make puppet hair by winding yarn around your four fingers about 25 times. Pull it off your fingers keeping the yarn in the same shape and tie the yarn together in the middle with another piece of yarn. Cut the looped ends to make a pompom.

3. In class have your children glue the word strip around the rim of the glass and the hair to the bottom of the cup.

4. Draw a sad face on one side of the cup and a happy face on the other. You can use googly eyes or eye stickers if you have them.

5. Use a pencil to draw a hole for the nose. Make it large enough for a child's finger to fit through. Punch the nose out by poking the pencil through the foam.

6. To make the arms place buttons inside the cup where the arm should be attached. Stick one end of a pipe cleaner through one of the button holes and the foam of the cup from the inside to the outside of the cup. Stick the other end of the pipe cleaner through the opposite hole from the inside to outside of the cup. Pull the pipe cleaner through so that both sides are even on the out side. Do the same thing with another pipe cleaner with the other two holes. (The button will keep the pipe cleaners from being pulled through the foam cup.)

7. Wind the ends of the pipe cleaners together to make the arm. Glue a hand to the end of the pipe cleaner and another hand on the other side of the hand to cover the end of the pipe cleaner.

8. Have your children move the arms to represent each type of prayer. The hand is placed in front of the mouth with the thumb up and then moved out from the face to represent thanks. This is how you say, "Thank you." in sign language.

Learn the Lord's Prayer in Sign Language

Your children will love signing the Lord's Prayer as they recite it. They will also love signing it to the popular song, "As It Is In Heaven" by Michael W. Smith. Consider having your children perform it in front of the congregation. This would also be a great way to show your congregation what your children are learning. Go to the Lesson Tutor Web Site for printouts and directions.

 

 

Prayer Box Sunday School Craft

(This is a good Sunday School or Junior Church thing to be done weekly.) Get a shoe box or any box and wrap it with tissue paper. I used white and then decorated it. Cut a slit in the top and write "Prayer Box" on it. Make out prayer request cards and hand them out to the children or have them make their own. Have the children that have a request fill it out, read it out loud to the class, and then slip it in the box.
The next Sunday read the requests and see how many have been answered. If they have been answered, you can either give it to the child to keep, or do the "extra activity". If they haven't been answered, keep it in the box till it has been answered.

Make an "Answered Prayer Request" poster. Write the title at the top and then make square boxes on the rest of the poster board so that the cards fit into them. Whenever a request is answered have the children tape their card to the board. Keep doing this every Sunday.

I do this with my junior church every week and the pastor and the church just love it. They love reading them to see what the kids pray about. It's a big hit whenever we have potlucks. People love to see what new prayers are up. (Sent in by Heather)

Prayer Tower Sunday School Activity

I teach Pre-K and kindergarten and one thing I have found hard is to keep their little minds on the prayer being said. A great thing to do is to use blocks to build a prayer tower. Each child takes a block and stacks it on the tower. As they stack it they say what they would like to pray about. This is fun for them, but most importantly, it helps them think of whom they would like to pray for. This idea was sent in by Kay Hershberger

Bible Lessons and Crafts About Prayer for Sunday School

1. The Lords Prayer - How Jesus Taught His Disciples to Pray
By Vicki Wiley

Salvation Message and Craft lesson

This lesson is taught using plastic cross containers and color Sandy Candy.

Each child is given a plastic cross frame. You can buy Plastic Sand Art Crosses (Pack of 12 Crosses)

Sand Art Candy (Pack of 24)

Our Father who is in Heaven - The first thing Jesus said was, "Our Father in heaven", Some Bible Translations say "Our Father, who ART in heaven." That means our Father who is in heaven.
Let's put some gold into our tube to remind us of heaven. The Bible tells us that the streets of heaven are made of gold, so the gold will remind us of heaven and how we should start our prayer.

"May your kingdom come" - (Pass around the purple "Sandy Candy")
Jesus is the King and we use purple to stand for royalty. The kingdom that Jesus is talking about is now in heaven, but at the end of the world it will also be on earth. When you see the purple, you can remember the kingdom of God. For the complete lesson click on the link above.

The Lord's Prayer - Bible Lesson on The Resource Room for Children Grades 2 - 5

The aim of this Lesson is to help students understand prayer as a means of talking to God, to look at and understand the model prayer Jesus gave us. Following are some ideas from the lesson:

1. Display a variety of baking ingredients and a recipe for bread. Include ingredients that would not go into a bread recipe. Discuss what would happen if we didn't use a recipe as beginning bakers. Then have the students decide which of the ingredients belong in the recipe. Explain that Jesus gave us an example of a prayer to use as our guide when we pray. If time permits, students could make the bread. Otherwise, the leader could make the bread at home and bring it back when the "daily bread" portion of the prayer is discussed.
