Some of the prayer starters are meant to help children with their own spontaneous prayers, and some of them prompt already established prayers. Each one has a simple clip art picture that goes with each prayer starter.

I just made two sets of these prayer starters for my two babies. I think this is a wonderful idea to help them in their prayer life. Help kids along the path of independent prayer with these printable prayer starters. Free, and easy.

Make a tin for meal prayers, bedtime prayers, or even traditional prayers that need to be memorized!

Very easy rosary craft for Catholic and creations Ideas

Catholic All Year: A Chocolate Chip Rosary You can put these together pretty easily, one for each person, then sit around the table and say the Rosary. We let the kids eat each "bead" as we go along (which is why we don't make it out of chewy or hard candy, it needs to be gone fast). But if you prefer, you can give them each a bowl to put the candies in as you pray, then they can eat them at the end.
