USING CHILDREN'S BOOKS TO EXPLORE WAYS TO PRAY
This creative program teaches children about different forms of prayer using wonderful children's books --- classics such as Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar and works by Tomie dePaola, as well as new favorites like the marvelous Old Turtle by Douglas Wood.
Children explore a different prayer method each session and create a craft that can be a tool to remind them about prayer and connect to the session's story. Originally conceived as a Lenten program for children, this 5-session program also works beautifully for VBS and can be used to supplement any Sunday School curriculum. It is also a great resource for parents who want to teach their children to pray at home.
