Here we are again. I’d like to say it’s the 11th hour but we’re waaaaaaay past that. That’s how much I love ya. I just had to share this idea. I will say that the inspiration did come at the 11th hour. Tomorrow in primary, we’re teaching the children that the scriptures teach us how to pray and when to pray. I was scanning through blogs, seeing what others will be doing. I came across “I Heart Primary Music”. Can I just sat that I heart I Heart Primary Music. I found her post from last weeks music time and loved her idea of having the kids sing the primary songs doing the different actions we’re supposed to do during prayer. I started drawing out the pictures of the actions to give the kids a visual. After drawing my visuals, I came up with an idea.
So here it is:
Here’s one of the stacks. After the kids put the pictures together, I’m going to ask them if this person were to say prayer, are they ready? Definitely not. I’ll have them point out what’s wrong. The eyes of course.
By the end, we should have all the pictures up of the proper way to be when saying prayer. I will put up the picture of how we should “bow our heads”. For the last song I will have the kids sing “I Pray in Faith”. I thought that that was a good song that tied everything in.
I don’t have a PDF file of my drawings, but I figure they’re simple enough to draw. I think the kids will get a kick out of putting together their prayer person and seeing the funny things they shouldn’t be doing. I think it will help drive home the point of being ready for prayer.
