One way to teach a child the Lord’s Prayer is to recite it together with the child. Say each line and have the child repeat the line afterwards. To help a child learn and understand the prayer, questions can be asked about each line. For example, after the line "Give us today our daily bread," a good question is "Which is your favorite food that you want to thank God for?"

Another easy trick to use are prayer songs. They are available online on Christian websites and YouTube channels and can be a great way to teach the Lord’s Prayer to children who like to sing. Have the child sing along and learn the lines through a fun song.

If the child likes coloring, there are plenty of Christian websites that offer coloring pages to help children learn the prayer. The coloring pages have pictures to go with each line of the prayer and the child learns to remember and understand the lines while coloring the pictures.
