Frame a Prayer with Children

Catholic ABC’s Week: 21
Letter of the week: P
Theme: Prayer
Saint of the Week: St. Peter
Craft: Prayer Craft


I was really torn about what the focus for “P” week should be, but ultimately decided on “prayer” because it’s so important, and such a basic concept. 🙂 This is a craft Lydia made at our preschool co-op, and it has been a great tool to encourage us to pray together.

Materials Needed to Complete This Craft:

  • Jumbo Craft Sticks
  • Paint and/or other decorations
  • Printed off prayer of your choice
  • String
  • Glue

Start by gluing the Jumbo Craft Sticks in a square for your frame. Decorate as desired with paint, stickers, glitter glue, or anything else you’d like! Tie on a string for hanging, and then glue the prayer onto the back of the frame.


Hang this up somewhere in your home to help you and your child remember to pray daily. Ours hangs on our china cabinet. Ya, we’re classy like that. 😉

Catholic ABCs Curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten

Catholic ABCs Curriculum

Catholic ABCs is a hand-on curriculum full of crafts, printables, worksheets, saints, learning, and more for preschoolers and kindergartners. There are over 2,000 pages that you can use for multiple school years! (This is also a great supplement for 1st and 2nd graders.)

Here are some other crafts you can find here on my blog that would also be great for the letter P:
Make a prayer book with kids. (I love this craft!)
And of course the Edible Papal Flag I ran on Monday.
Grab Bag Ideas for the Letter P: (be sure to check out the Classroom Script
for directions on using the grab bag.) Peanut, Papal flag, Priest, Prayer card, St. Peter holy card or statue, plate, pen, pencil, pecan, parrot, my little pony, ponytail holder, popsicle stick, post-it note, potato, potato head, pretzel, princess, puppet, purse, puzzle.

    Again, I love the alphabet ideas. But I must say, those priest peg dolls are adorable. We are so making those–we can frame a Prayer for our Priests and the Pope!
