This is an Summer Activity Jar idea I found in The Friend magazine, published for children by our church. It's a Prayer Rock. I remember making one when I was a child, so I was tickled when my kids brought me the instructions and asked to include it in our Jar.
Every night when we pull the covers back to get into bed, the rock is there to remind us to say our personal prayers to Heavenly Father. Then the rock goes on the floor next to the bed. When we get out of bed in the morning and step on the rock, it's a reminder to say our morning prayers to start the day.
As you can see, I made a rock with the kids. Can you tell which one is mine? I'm loving the extra reminder to make my prayers a higher priority in my day.
Interestingly, a few weeks later my children had the chance to make a second prayer rock at Christ Centered Children's Camp, sponsored by our local congregation! I say: The more reminders, the better! : )
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
