We finally got a family fun night in. It has been crazy around here with Jay getting ready for Battle of the Bands at our church. This week we focused on making a prayer cube. This came about because a few weeks ago Jay had been talking to the kids about how to pray and The Lord's Prayer. We are trying to get them to expand their prayers and "talk" to God more. This lesson focused in on this and was great.
This activity also came from Family Time Activities this book is "Running the Race". We went through the scripture Matthew 6:9-13 and Ephesians 6:18. Then they each got a copy of the prayer cube that I copied onto cardstock. We went through each part of the prayer and labled our cubes: "Praise God", "God's Will", "Daily Needs", "Forgiveness", "Wisdom", and "Anything". We put the cubes together then each of us had a chance to roll it and pray for the topic it landed on. I think it is a great visual for the kids.
After this we ended our evening with a fun stacking game (this idea came from my friend Kymberly, Thanks!).
Each person got a stack of oreo cookies to see how high they could stack them. Then we got to eat some!!! This was a lot of fun.
