great idea- Prayer Bands - we use prayer craft sticks in our class so everyone is able to pray for different national, state, local leaders, school leaders, missionaries...each day
Prayer Bands - I need to introduce these to youth group!
Prayer bands would be a great way to help children remember who to pray for each week. Use strips of construction paper and close with a sticker. Easy! Sunday school
Prayer series idea. Kids wear all week as reminder to play - use for pray always lesson, i.e. around the clock, with perseverance. Also a Women's Ministry idea. They used event wristbands. Also could put the name of your prayer partner.
Idea for long race-like a mile pacer band but with prayer ideas for each mile
Sometimes we have to think outside of the box

TAGXEDO: interesting site that appears to be in the building stage. Like a "Wordle" but takes the words you gather and puts them into a specific shape like an animal, famous person, yourself?

Tagxedo - A great site for generating word clouds in shapes! I thought maybe my kids could do this for a sort of "report" and an art project at the same time on people or things we are learning about.
Cool website where you can upload their own photos and add words that describe them! Or you can use the already uploaded photos of famous people, animals, plants, etcetera to introduce concepts and units.

great idea for family bulletin board: "pin your prayer requests here." place board at height for all ages so young ones know their requests are as important as adults'
Youth Room great idea for family bulletin board: "Pin your prayers here." Make reachable for small kids, so no matter how small they feel that their concerns are important enough for you to pray for. Encourages communication between family members....
Great idea for a prayer board! Encourages children to participate in asking for and receiving prayer requests each week. Have children post anonymous requests to the board, then chose someone else's request to pray over.
This is a journaling tool created for a "Parables" sermon-series.
