A fun Bible activity created to to teach your children’s ministry kids a sweet lesson.
Prepare one grab bag with several different kinds of candy — sweet, sour, hot, and dark-chocolate — for every four kids. Form groups of four and give each group a grab bag. Have children take turns reaching into the bag for one candy. When each child has a treat, explain that the candies represent different kinds of prayer.

Use the following examples to lead kids in prayer.
Sweet candy — thank God for a “sweet time” in your life.
Sour candy — ask God to help you add sweetness to someone else’s day.
Hot candy — ask God to keep you excited about serving him.
Dark-chocolate candy — pray for someone who’s going through a difficult time.
After you’ve prayed, enjoy the treats. Have each child put one of each candy in a sandwich bag to take home. Encourage children to teach their families what they’ve learned about prayer.
