“Shhh … It’s Time for Prayer”


You can help your family get ready for prayer by having three people help you with these little finger puppets. Ask each person to hold a puppet behind his back until his animal’s verse is recited. On the last line of each verse, have everyone hold his index finger to his lips and whisper, “Shhh … it’s time for prayer.”

The bunny hops up in the air.
Please tell him, “Shhh … it’s time for prayer.”
The small mouse squeaks behind the stair.
Please tell him, “Shhh … It’s time for prayer.”
The young duck quacks without a care.
Please tell him, “Shhh … it’s time for prayer.”
