Train up a child Tuesday

Kat is hosting Train Up A Child Tuesday today. Check it out to find:


Child rearing tips
Traditions of your family
Resources you've found helpful (books, musical c.d.'s, family games)
Memorable things you experienced as a child with your family
Scriptures shared with your children
Every day activities

...shared by other bloggers.

Here is mine:

This is fairly a new thing in our family, but I have created a "Table Prayer Box". It's basically a recipe box, decorated all pretty-like, and in it are cards with prayer requests on them. The children can add to them, as well as the adults.
Every child has a certain day of the week that they are to bless the food before dinner. On the day that they pray, they get to randomly pick a card from the box and add that request in with our dinner prayer.
I've heard variations of this idea from other people, but this setup works for us.

Oh Andrea, I absolutly LOVE this idea! Thank you so much for sharing. I will start this now even though it's just me, hubby, and the non-speaking one at present! :-)

Blessings,
Kat

We do this with some written needs, some photos (photo's as much as possible). I find that for the small children, it's nice for them to be able to look at the folks we're praying for. :)

Great idea! My little ones are (almost) 3 & 1 so this will be a great idea to put in our "treasure trove."
