Distribute the activity sheets. Have poster paint, a pan of water, and wipes available. Set up a paint station, and help each child to make a thumbprint in the circle on his or her prayer card. Allow about five minutes for the paint to dry. Then ask the children to color the hearts on the cards. Ask the children to show their papers to the group. Help the children to see and to appreciate that each person's thumbprint is different.
Ask the children to stand and hold their hands over their hearts. Then read the prayer on the card.
Help the children to cut out their cards. Encourage the children to show the cards to their families.
