Looking for a functional craft activity for your Sunday School, VBS, or even at home? Have your group create their own prayer box to help them direct their thoughts and prayers, and become closer to God. Begin a discussion about what types of things we would ask God, and why we would confide in Him. This will help guide them with what to keep in their prayer box, and to have faith that He is always listening.

Caterpillars & Butterflies (Based on 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Everyone loves a potato sack race! Take the opportunity to turn this friendly competition into a christian learning opportunity. The game below, using burlap potato sacks, is from our friends over at Sunday School Network.
Divide players into 4-6 players per team. Each team will need one potato sack. Line teams up at a starting point on one side of your playing area.

When the cocoons are removed, they become new creatures, “butterflies”.
