I love the opportunity to review different Catholic products when they come along. Integrating our faith in all facets of our life is my goal.
A different prayer is burned into each side of the 6 sided wooden die. This die is made large enough to accommodate each prayer as well as being durable for repeated uses by little hands.
The ole’ Catholic standard ‘Bless Us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts…” is one of them. But, the others offer some variety to the daily routine.
Using the die is simple. Pick a child to give it a shake and a roll. Whichever side ends up is the one that gets read for the blessing prayer that time. If a young child wants to role, then an older sibling or parent could read the prayer aloud.
J had been very enthusiastic in his desire to roll the die. What self-respecting toddler (almost preschooler) wouldn’t be? However, he still wants to say the ‘proper’ prayer that he has learned over the past few years by sitting at the table with us. So, we typically got a double blessing on the nights when that wasn’t the prayer chance gave us.
If asked if this is a product I’d rush out to buy, my answer would probably be no. Yet, I’d definitely say that it could be a great gift option for a child in your life to give them variety in their meal blessing prayers as well as encourage the act of praying over a meal before they begin to eat.
You can purchase your own Table Grace Dice from Catholic Family Gifts for $11.95 plus shipping. They also sell a Catholic Prayers Dice with the basic prayers to allow for learning and practice which has caught my eye as well.
Guess what?? One lucky US reader will win a product from Catholic Family Gifts.
