Each family will need a flowerpot, five tongue depressors, five fabric flowers, floral tape, a marker, and Easter grass.
Have adults or older children write the following prayer items on separate tongue depressors: our family; our community; our church; people who need help; thanks and praise.
Next secure a fabric flower on the end of each tongue depressor with floral tape. Place the flower sticks and Easter grass in the flowerpot.
Set the flowers on your table for family meals. The flowers can serve as a reminder of Jesus’ example as he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. At each meal, pick a flower and pray for the item written on the stick.
