I love, love hand print crafts. What better way to set up a Thanksgiving table then to have praying hands on everyone’s plates? You could also use this as an activity on Thanksgiving day or a simple Sunday School Craft with the kids.

Here’s what I did to make these Giving Thanks Praying Hands Craft:

You’ll Need:

  • A large foam sheet – I used beige
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • “Give Thanks” stickers, or print outs(I recently added a free printable, below)
  • Glue – A low temp glue gun and glue sticks would work well for this craft


Instructions for this Prayer Craft table decoration:

  1. Trace the hands, and wrist with the fingers close together – not spread open
  2. Cut the traced hand including the wrist
  3. Level the wrist section off by cutting a nice strait line
  4. Glue the finger tips together
  5. Add your decoration to the outside – (a sticker or print out)
  6. Place the hands on the table with the base spread apart

Here’s the printable I promised.

There are now 2 to choose from. Just pick the one you want – click and print. Happy Thanksgiving!
