Praying hands crafts remind children to pray, as well as helping them memorise Bible verses. There are several varieties of crafts that children can use for praying hands memory verses, which are suitable for a wide range of age groups. Younger children can glue and draw, and older children can use scissors and write the verses.
Cut out an 8-by-8-inch square of black paper for each child. Trace the outline of praying hands on the paper, and cut out the hands. Have the children glue squares of bright tissue paper onto an 8-by-8-inch square of white paper. Glue the black hand frame over the white piece of paper. Write the memory verse in white ink on the black frame.
Cut out a praying hands outline for each child. Tape the hands to a piece of white paper. Have the children cover the rest of the paper in black paint. When the paint dries, remove the hands from the middle of the paper. You will be left with white hands in the centre of a black piece of paper. Write the memory verse over the paint or inside the hands.
Have each child cut out an outline of praying hands from black paper. Cut out a window shape slightly larger than the hands from waxed paper. Glue small pieces of coloured construction paper to the window shape to make a stained glass window. Glue a second piece of waxed paper over the paper pieces. Glue the hands to the front of the window. Write the memory verse onto the black hands using a gel pen.
Trace the outline of each child's right hand on the left side of a piece of paper. Trace the outline of the left hand on the right side of the paper, overlapping the pinky fingers. Cut out the hands, and fold the paper in half to create praying hands. Glue the hands together. Write the memory verse just below the hands on the paper. Also write the date so you can remember how old the child was when he made the craft.
