Going the extra mile prayer activity

As part of our work on the sermon on the mount this term with our 5-11s, this is one of the new prayer stations children can choose from.  It picks up on the idea of 'going the extra mile' for someone.

Encourage the children to think of someone they usually help or could help with something at home or at school.  Then get them to think of how they could do something extra and unasked to help that person.  Children draw or write their idea on a coloured footprint and stick it somewhere on the track, asking God to help them bless that person.  When they come back the following week they can then put a smiley face next to their footprint if they've managed to do that thing!
