A fun creative prayer idea about thanksgiving and praising God

What you need:

  • bottles of bubble mix
  • food colouring
  • paper hearts
  • pens

Let's start...


Put a few drops of food colouring in each of the bottles of bubble mix – a different colour in each bottle gives the best effect.

Give the children a paper heart and ask them to write things that they are thankful for, and what they want to thank God for.

Then show them how they can blow bubbles up against the paper hearts. When the bubbles burst they will leave their colour behind on the paper. The children can blow different colour bubbles to make a nice effect on their paper hearts.
