- Prayer pots
- 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.
