Can you wait?




  • Marshmallows



  1. Place a marshmallow in front of each child.
  2. Tell them that if they don’t touch this marshmallow and wait, they’ll get two marshmallows. Do not specify how long they have to wait.
  3. Then tell the children to wait 15 minutes without mentioning anything more.
  4. At the end of the 15 minutes, give a second marshmallow to the children who have not touched their marshmallow.
  5. Make the connection with the story of the day. Hannah waited and prayed until she got what she asked for and more.
