Salt Tray Prayers

Creating memories happens better when you engage in one or all five of our senses. An idea you can use…

Taste, Seeing


Find a cookie sheet with sides.  Pour enough table salt to cover the bottom of the cookie sheet well.  Also have several coffee stirrers available. 

During the prayer time, allow each youth come to the "salt tray" and write or draw their prayers into the salt.  As you or the youth says "amen" have them smooth out the salt again.  

This does not seem like much but the salt provides a tactile experience which will connect.
