Warm up- Order the Lord's prayer (how much can you remember?). Prayer printed out and cut into strips, mixed up so they can be put in the correct order. We made this a race!
Our Father in Heaven: Heaven collage (a whole group project)
Your Kingdom come: Kingdom of God orbs. When we finished we put them on a world map to symbolise God's sovereignty over the world. The children then insisted we arrange them into a cross shape. They have really got into using symbols in prayer!
Give us today our daily bread: Children shaped bread dough into their initial to show thanks to God for all the things he had given them in their daily lives.
Forgive us our sins: Washing away sins. After quite a lot of activity, the children really settled down and took this very seriously. For the first time that day they were actually silent!
As we forgive those who sin against us: Forgiveness fizz. This is one of their favourite activities and focuses on letting go of anger and asking God to help you forgive.
