I love to do crafts and have cute handouts and activities for church (and school, and friends, and - well you get the idea). I don't consider myself creative, but often use the help of others' talents. I decided to share what I'm doing for others just like me. It may be a link to where I found something or it might even be something *I* created. Right now I work as a paraprofessional at my kids' elementary - in special ed (autism). I started creating items for my 3rd graders this year and can't wait to share them with you. I am the 1st counselor in YW (first time in YW is this past year). I also have ideas for cub scouts and sunbeams posted, my previous callings.

We Can Pray as a Family (Primary Manual 1, Lesson 27)

Sunbeam Lesson 27: We Can Pray As a Family

For this lesson I created a prayer puzzle:
I copied it on several colors.  Since they can't read I wanted each match to be a different color since the puzzles are all the same shape.  For example Bow My Head and the picture next to it was on blue cardstock, the next two (close my eyes & picture) were on green cardstock, then next two on red cardstock, and the next two on yellow cardstock.  The idea is to reinforce what they should be doing during the prayer. I then rotated the colors (first on green, second red, third yellow, fourth blue, etc).  I put every set in a ziplock bag to give the kids.

Earlier in the year (lesson 4) I also made Prayer Bingo.  It would work with this lesson as well:  
There are six different Bingo Sheets.  You can give each child a set to play with their families or one sheet and play as a class.  I laminated each sheet.  We played as a class and then they took it home.  I meant to post this right after the lesson.  I was going to give them the link so they could print sheets to play as a family.
Each column is a different part of prayer.  First column is the things we do when we pray.  The next column is different types of prayer - ways we pray, the third column are people we pray for, the fourth column has things we are thankful for, and the last column are things we can ask for.
