Then set up a small bin to which your child must aim for with a small ball. When a goal is made, your child will be rewarded with a word. As your child receives words, he/she must do their best to arrange this prayer in correct order. Once they have completed this prayer, recite it with them. Play this game as many times as needed until they learn this prayer by heart. This is will be a highly engaging way to help your child learn the Miraculous Medal prayer.
