Making prayer chatterboxes at lunchtime club!

We noticed how much the children at our school lunchtime club enjoyed using the prayer chatterboxes that we had in our portable prayer box, so we decided that today we would let them make their own!

We spoke about the spiritual fruit of Love and about how we can show love to others by praying for them- even people we don't like very much!  We then let the children choose people, places or things they wanted to pray about and gave them some blank chatterbox sheets to fill in.  Here are some examples...

We then folded the chatterboxes and prayed/ played!  It's really exciting when you find something that engages children in prayer, maybe for the first time :-)
