Different Colors of Printer Paper

In class explain to the children what each digit on the hand represents and have your children write on each digit what it represents. They may also want to write specific names. For example, they can write Mr. West for their teacher.
1. Thumb – Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. Pray for your mother and father, sisters and brothers, and your friends.
2. Pointer Finger – You use your pointer finger to show people the way or point out the way. Teachers, parents, doctors, pastors and other people teach you the right way to live. You should pray for them. Pray that God gives them the wisdom and ability to point you in the right direction.
3. Tallest Finger – Your middle finger is the tallest. This finger can remind you to pray for those who are in charge or who lead you. You should pray for the president, your school principal, and others. Pray that God leads them to make wise decisions.
4. Ring Finger – Your fourth finger is your ring finger. It is your weakest finger and it should remind you to pray for those who are weak, sick, poor, or in trouble.
5. Little Finger – And the last finger is the smallest. That should remind you of your place in relation to others. You should make God the most important thing in your life and treat others as more important than yourself. Pray that God will forgive you when you make mistakes. And don’t forget to thank him for everything he has done for you.
Older Children can look up these scriptures and write them on the back of the hand – Ps. 5:3, Luke 11:2-4, Matthew 7: 7, 11, Phil. 4:6, and 1 Thes. 5:7. They can decorate the hand with fingernails and rings if they would like.
