to pray with this fun, summery craft! You'll need a permanent
marker, 3- to 4-inch Styrofoam balls, stickers, washable markers,
and tongue depressors. You'll need one ball and at least five
tongue depressors per child.
Let kids decorate the tongue depressors and foam ball with
stickers and washable markers. Then ask kids who they'd like to
pray for, and use the permanent marker to print the names on the
tongue depressors. Help kids stick their tongue depressors into the
ball like rays of the sun. Read the names on kids' sun rays and
pray with them for those people. Kids can also spin their sunshines
and pray for the person whose ray is closest. Encourage kids to
take home their sunshines as a reminder to pray for the important
people in their lives. Kids can even pull out an individual ray of
sun and hold it as they pray for that person.
