New Mom Prayer Jar: I found a jar and some mini greeting cards and decorated the jar to match. In the cards, I wrote Bible verses that would help or inspire mom. I then cut squares of card stock to fit inside the envelopes. At the shower, the guests wrote words of wisdom/advice that the new mom can read when she needs encouragement. We went in a circle and read either the note we wrote or a Bible verse, filling the jar. The jar can stay in the nursery and be reread as needed.
Could alter this to be a mindfulness jar or affirmation jar. DIY Prayer Jar activity for VBS or Sunday School! This activity can go along with a discussion about what prayer is, why we pray, and specific Bible versus related to prayer.
Grateful Jar: The year just started! Set up a jar and write down your happy moments as you have them on pieces of paper and put them in the jar. At the end of the year, you can read back through them. More like a "Happy Moments of the Year" Jar
