DIY Prayer Sticks

This year for Lent, we made some prayer sticks to use with the kids. Abby picks a stick out of the jar every morning, and that is who/what we pray for during the day. I love the idea of offering up our trials during the day for someone else or for special intentions. I also love that it is something easy for Abby to make and understand :)

Basically, grab some popsicle sticks and write one intention per stick. We wrote our family member's names, specific causes we're interested in, and for our country/leaders.

On one end of the stick, add some fun washi tape or just color with markers. Keep the colored end up, and after you pick out your stick, place it back in the jar with the colored end down. It's an easy way to keep track of what sticks you've already used :)

How are you celebrating Lent with your little ones? Follow our Lent and Easter board on Pinterest for some more fun ideas to celebrate the holiday with your family :)

  4. Thanks Kelly! I'll have to check it out! :)

  5. I love this idea! I feel like I could make a prayer stick jar for myself :)

  6. So smart! Love this idea!

  7. Oh definitely! My husband and I did our intentions on paper strips last year, but I'm liking the sticks better (much more durable for little ones) :)

  8. This is precious!! What a sweet project that teaches your littles the importance of praying for those you love. I think my family would love to know they're being prayed for each day. Definitely going to be doing this at our house.

  9. Thanks Whitney :) It will be easy and fun for Olive ... Abby loves picking it out every morning! It definitely makes dealing with their toddler moments easier when you know it's being offered up for someone else :)


I love reading your comments - it makes my day! :) Thanks for dropping by!
