If you have followed along for any length of time around here, you will see that one of the most talked about activities for us to use with our children is prayer walking. Our little town has made it so very easy to go for a quick prayer walk around the city center by installing these really cool lightbulbs. So we’ve gone on several prayer walks through our city on a hunt for lightbulbs. So much so that when my four year old finds a new lightbulb, she makes us stop and pray. (Haha)
Prayer walking is easy and fun and a great way to expose our little ones to the constant need for prayer. It also helps them see the needs around them and emphasizes the importance of praying right then. And of course there is always the added bonus of helping them think of other things and people besides themselves. And to top it off, what little one doesn’t love to go on a fun scavenger hunt?!
As the new school year begins, we’ve created a fun “Back to School” Scavenger Hunt Printable that you can print and use with your little ones as you prayer walk at their school or a school in the neighborhood.
As a family you can look for the items and stop and pray together. If you’re one of those competitive families though, make a game out of it and see who can find and pray for the most items in a certain amount of time. Whatever you do, let’s make praying fun! Let’s encourage our little ones to see things like flag poles, school buses, and crayons differently this year! And most importantly, let’s begin our school year by praying!
And as you’re starting the school year, be sure to check out the Back To School Tips for you and your family to start the school year ON Mission!
Be sure to post pics in our On Mission Moms Facebook Group of your fun Scavenger Hunt Prayer Walk or tag us at @OnMissionMoms!
Please only use the printable for your personal use!
