Most children are taught to say sorry when they’ve been caught after doing something wrong. This activity encourages pupils to admit the things that they’ve done, said or thought that are wrong and write their sorry prayers onto sheets of acetate or a white-board. These words and images are then wiped away as a symbol of God’s forgiveness.
There are other prayer activities in our library that also focus on being sorry and receiving forgiveness. This activity works best with primary-aged children, and can be done with a whole class.
