Simple Prayer Sticks

by Mollie

  Each night when we go to sleep we pray with Zoie.  We always thank God for keeping us safe and we like to pray for our family.  A good friend gave us the idea of making her prayer sticks and I have finally gotten around to doing it.  Its a simple concept...put pictures of your friends and family that you would like your child to pray for and have them pick one stick each night and pray for that person.
   Zoie LOVES to say all the names of her family and we loved the idea of spending time in prayer for each special person in our lives.

  The craft itself is pretty self explanatory....
    Step #1 - print off pictures
    Step #2 - cut them out.  You could choose to back them on cute scrapbooking paper or laminate them.  I was in a hurry so I just cut them out.  I would love to embellish them later.
   Step #3 - attach them to craft sticks with either glue or tape.
  Step #4 - put them in a can or jar for your little one to take one out each night.  I am going to put mine in an old mason jar and make it cute with some ribbon or something.

I can't wait to start using these with Zoie tonight! I know its going to make our bed time even more special.  God is so good to give us such a loving family and now we get to teach our little daughter how to pray.  Hope you are all having a great week.
