Use the Easter Prayer Chain to Incorporate Prayer into Your Classroom, Teaching Area or Home.
Create an Easter Prayer Chain to help children remember to pray for one another and those they love during this joyful time of the year.
Our paper chains are an alternative to plain construction paper. Not only do they have seasonal images, but the words "Pray For" and a line for students to write on are also provided. These features make it easy to use and more meaningful and, of course, fun.
There are nine designs in this set featuring a fun line of decorated Easter eggs and the colors blue, yellow, green, blue, purple, orange, red, and black. Each page provides four links that create a chain that measures about 12-inches in length. One version offers a black-and-white design for those who would like to personally decorate the links in the chain or who do not want to use colored ink.
How to Use the Easter Prayer Chain
First, print out the sheets, and cut the pieces apart, forming four similar strips. The end pieces may be slightly wider. Trim if desired. Next, have students write the name of someone to pray for on the line provided. Then, bring the ends of the strips together to form a circle. Staple the ends to close. Repeat this process, attaching one new link to the existing chain. Create as long a chain as desired. Finally, display your Easter Prayer Chain around the edge of a bulletin board, the border of a door, or hang it like a garland from the wall.
