Paper Prayer Blossoms
When your students offer prayer requests, remind them that each request gives God a chance to
create a miracle. This project reinforces the concept that when we bring a prayer request to God, He
wants to make something beautiful out of every problem or need.
I have a whole orchard of miracles. You, too? Happy growing and teaching!

These blossoms are easy to make—younger kids with good fine-motor skills should be able to manage
You will need:
• pink or white crepe paper
• kids craft glue
1. Cut crepe paper into small pieces. We cut ours into roughly 1-inch squares. Each student needs
about 20 pieces of paper altogether. (They do not all have to have prayer requests.)
2. Take prayer requests, writing each child’s request on a separate piece of paper.
3. Pray together for the requests, giving them to God and asking Him to help the children grow and
trust Him to answer.
4. Scrunch the crepe paper into small, tight balls.
5. Dip the balls in glue and stick it to the twig. Keep going until the twig is in full bloom.

frosting, and any other pretty candies for your projects.
Memory Verse Windsocks
Ask students to write out the memory verses that they have learned each
quarter on lengths of crepe paper streamers. Then make these great windsocks. The
more memory verses learned, the cooler the windsock will be. Have a parade across
your platform, each child waving his windsock, so the adults can applaud your
students’ great work memorizing Scriptures.
