Play dough world map prayers

This is a very hands on and tactile way of praying!  

Ask children to choose a country to pray for and give them some play dough.  Put the play dough over the country on the map and mould it to fit the outline of the country, praying that God will bless the land and the people and that His kingdom will come there.  In the picture, I've used a giant wall map that I didn't have to use again afterwards as the play dough can leave a sticky residue.  Alternatively, you can laminate some smaller maps- maybe of different continents- and these will be able to be re-used.

Children might want to stick some sequins or plastic jewels into the play dough as a symbol of the blessing they are asking God to bring.

Have fun!
