Transform a square box into a prayer
block to help little ones in your nursery give thanks to God.
You'll need a small square box, magazines, scissors, glue, and
clear adhesive paper.
Cut out pictures of items babies recognize, such as toys, foods,
or animals, and glue one item to each side of the box. Cover the
box with clear adhesive paper for durability.
Let babies and toddlers play with the prayer block. As children
look at each side, point to the picture and say, "God made cats.
Thank you, God, for cats." The prayer block helps babies and
toddlers with vocabulary and recognition as they learn to give
thanks to God for the things he's created.
