Explain to the children that the coin represents us and that the dish represents the protection of God. The protection of God is only one prayeror a breath away. You will now show how the coin can be transported in the dish using only your breath.
Place the coin on the edge of a table and the dish about 15 cm away. Blow gently on the piece. (Practice a little in advance). Your breath should lift the coin and place it in the dish. The secret is to make sure you blow horizontally, just above the coin.
Allow some of the children to attempt it.
Tell the children that God is always there near us, to take care of us, to protect us. There are many times when we don’t even realize it!
