Throughout the harvest season, children’s ministry workers can use pumpkins to teach Bible-based principles. For example, print and hand out this pumpkin prayer coloring page. Parents and kids will enjoy using it after they carve their own pumpkins at home!
Free Pumpkin Prayer Coloring Page
From Christian Preschool Printables: “This is an adorable Pumpkin Prayer PDF that takes children through the carving of a pumpkin with special qualities to remember and thank God for.”
Examples from the pumpkin prayer coloring page:
Cut off the top.
Lord, open my mind and fill me with your wisdom and guidance.
Scoop out the yuckies.
Lord, take out all my fussies and frownies and fill me with your love.
Carve out the nose.
Lord, help me to be a sweet, sweet fragrance for you.
Carve out the eyes.
Lord, open my eyes to see all of the beautiful things you have made.
Carve out the mouth.
Lord, help me always speak Your words of love and kindness.
Place a candle inside.
Lord, let me be a light to others, for you have filled me with your light.
You can use this pumpkin prayer activity on the Sunday before Halloween. It also makes a special craft during your church’s Trunk or Treat or other Halloween-alternative outreach event. Send the handout home with parents and guardians, too. Encourage families to try the activity during their family devotions during the month of October!
