Prayer Board

We have great intentions in our house to say our prayers every night, but sometimes..we forget. We talked about making prayer rocks, but rocks are hard to find under a couple of FEET of snow. So, Daddy came up with another great idea for a project to do together as a family that will help us remember each night to say our prayers. We also added a little something extra to help us out in the morning to make our beds. I will explain it in a minute, but here is what we made:



I took the boys to Walmart & we bought some small little wood plaques {$.97 each}. I let the boys pick any color that they wanted to paint their plaque. I don't have a vinyl machine or a cricut..so I just found some coordinating paper & printed out what I wanted. On one side it says "Did you PRAY???" & on the other side it says "Make your bed!".

We painted the edges of the boards & then Mod Podged the paper on {top & bottom}. We sanded them down a bit & then Walla! a prayer board to remind us each night to pray. You will put your prayer board on {or under} your pillow to remind you to pray. Afterwards...you will flip it over & put it on the floor. So, when you get out of bed & step onto your board...it will remind you to make your bed & then you put your board back on your pillow.
