Switchplate Cover Prayer Reminder

Choose a country or persecuted Christian to pray for. Make a light switchplate cover to remind you to pray for the person or country whenever you turn on a light.

On think paper, draw and cut out a rectangle slightly larger than a light switchplate. Use markers, glue and glitter, glow-in-the-dark paint, or other decorative ways to write a reminder on the paper. Decorate the rest of the switchplate cover with stickers, drawings, pictures, or designs.

To cut out the center rectangle, use small, sharp scissors to gently poke a hole in it, then finish cutting out the rectangle. (Cut out the hole in advance for younger children) Use double-sided tape, or rolled-up pieces of regular tape, to attach the cover to a light switchplate.
