This week I have a special kit for you to share with the children in your life. Every child should know that the most important thing that ever happened on earth was the atonement which took place in the Garden of Gethsemane, because Jesus made it possible for us to repent of our sins and be forgiven. Next, He was crucified, buried, and then resurrected after three days in the tomb. He thus made it possible for us to be resurrected.
One of the most important events of the 19th century was Joseph Smith’s first vision. A young man read a passage of scripture and went to a grove of trees to pray out loud for the first time, and look what happened! He saw God the Father and our Savior Jesus Christ face to face and spoke to them. As a result, the ancient Gospel was restored.
Here’s a kit for you to tell the story to children, and for them to retell it to each other.
This week I have two FREE Christmas Story downloads for you! They are both fictional stories, teaching children about character and principles.
When you want to tell children about Jesus Christ and some of the miraculous things He did, what better way than to use some of the stories contained in these 3 kits? Kit #1 tells about His baptism by John, and the Temptation. Kit #2 contains the stories of Jesus calling His apostles. Kit #3 tells about the marriage at Cana and the woman at the well.
When I tell the stories, I prepare the figures by laminating them, cutting them out, and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling the stories, I let them play with the figures and tell the stories back to me using my Storyboard. They learn and remember best through play, and they enjoy retelling the stories.
