70 PRAYER STARTERS FOR CHILDREN
.... and those who teach them
Patricia Mathson

An experienced Religious Educator presents 70 engaging and creative prayer experiences for children ages 5-10 that invite children to make prayer a part of their daily lives. 
These prayer experiences can be used by any catechist, beginners as well as veterans, but also by parents because they offer inspiration and guidance for teaching about prayer at home.
There are seven chapters, each with a number of creative activities to celebrate and learn about prayer. Each helps catechists pray with children in ways that speak to their lives and interests, including talking to God in their own words, expressing praise to God through artwork, praying with Scripture, praying through the Mass, remembering to pray for the needs of others, praying with the psalms, and much more.
All of these activities will help catechists pray with children in ways that will help them form prayer habits that will deepen their personal relationship with God.

70 SACRAMENT STARTERS FOR CHILDREN
... and those who teach them
Patricia Mathson

Patricia Mathson believes that children learn best by doing. We can teach them about their faith, and in this case about the sacraments, she says, but a hands-on approach works even better because it involves the whole child. 
These simple, beautiful, and indispensable activities from an experienced Religious Educator offer ten creative ways to celebrate and learn about each of the seven sacraments. They can be used by any catechist, beginners as well as veterans, but also by parents because they offer a great way to teach about the sacraments at home. 
The activities include visits to the church, prayers, crafts, Scripture readings, stories about the saints, sacrament discussions, and outreach suggestions. 
What a great gift book for catechists and parents!
