Learning to Pray
We Fold Our Arms- ask everyone in the room to show you how they fold their arms. (Coloring Page “We Fold Our Arms-Girls” or “We Fold Our Arms-Boys” - color and hang on the wall in bed room as a reminder)

Talk about the parts of prayer and display a "Prayer Train” to hang on the wall to help them learn how to pray. (I used this train and saved it into draw and edited it to have each phrase listed below in the cars. You could also just print the page and glue the phrases on.
“Dear Father in Heaven…”
“We thank thee…”
“We ask thee…”
“In the name of Jesus Christ”
“Amen.”

I just found your blog and LOVE it! Just a little FYI...the links to the coloring pages on this post no longer exist.

I'm excited about your blog and am already putting in my Google Calendar different links to FHEs I want to do. I've been horrible about FHE.

Thanks!
