Prayer Idea: Sweet and Sour Grab Bags

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.
