Get ready: This craft is designed to help children learn the Lord’s Prayer. Using Matthew 6:9-13, have children tie their ribbons together in the order of the prayer.

Tell kids:

*Blue is the color of fathers. Say, “Our father who art in heaven” as you hold the blue ribbon.

*White represents holiness. Say, “Hallowed be Thy name” as you tie white to blue.

*Purple is a majestic color. Say, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done” as you tie purple to white.

*Green is the color of the Earth. Say, “On earth as it is in heaven” as you tie green to purple.

*Yellow reminds us of wheat. Say, “Give us this day our daily bread” as you tie yellow to green.

*Red reminds us of Jesus’ blood. By trusting in Jesus, we’re forgiven. Say, “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors” as you tie red to yellow.

*Orange is the color for the darkness of evil and temptation. Say, “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil” as you tie orange to red.

*And gold reminds us of God’s heavenly kingdom where he reigns forever. Say: “For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.” as you tie gold to orange.

*Now let’s use the ribbons to say the entire prayer together.

Talk teasers: From the Lord’s Prayer, what does God want us to pray about? What attitude does God want us to have as we pray? What do we learn about God from this prayer? Use this ribbon to practice saying the Lord’s Prayer. Then tie the ribbon around your neck and take it home as a reminder to pray in your own words each day.

    You give me these nice lessons, but won’t let me print them out so I can use them, why give us the lesson and not let us print. I can share, but can’t print. I am a paid subscriber and Sunday school teacher. I like using your lessons and the information.
