This is a really easy way to help children take time to reflect and think about God. We use these at our church as part of the ‘pray-ground’ resources that are laid out on some tables at the front of church. Children can come and use these resources at any point during the service and they are especially popular during sung worship times.
You will need: Coloured felt sheets, scissors
Cut cross shapes out of some felt sheets. Next cut some smaller pieces of felt in different colours. Lay out the cross shapes and felt pieces on a table or on the floor and invite children to decorate the crosses with the pieces. Encourage children to use the time to speak to God in their heads or to think about God. If you are sitting with them, this might be a good opportunity to speak to them about what they are thinking. Be prepared for some very deep God connections!
