This is a really popular prayer activity:
1 Grab a pack of multi-coloured sweets — Skittles work well!
2 Assign each colour sweet a category, for example:
- Red: family
- Purple: friends
- Green: environment/ animals
- Yellow: the world
- Orange: school/work
3 Take it in turns to pick one sweet. You could do this with your eyes closed or open if you want to choose what to thank God for.
4 Before you eat your sweet, say a one-line prayer thanking God for something in that category.
5 Eat your sweet as the next person takes their turn.
You can also do this with ‘please’ prayers!
