I have two special downloads for you this week!
One is a kit for telling the Easter story. Scripture references, coloring activities, and visual aids are given.
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.
Some of us have children or grandchildren getting ready to be baptized, or we may be preparing a baptism program for the children in Primary who are to be baptized in the next year. I have two FREE downloads for you!
To help you get a program ready, take a look at this kit. The kit includes a talk, posters, bookmark gifts, invitations, and programs for attendees. These are ideas you can print and use as you wish, including sharing the files with others.
There’s one Christmas tradition I like a lot, and that’s storytelling. When my kids were young, we always told the Nativity story on Christmas Eve, because that’s the reason we have a Christmas celebration in the first place. There are a lot of other great Christmas Stories, and here are three kits for telling them. In a kit, you get a story, some visual aids to help tell the story, activities to go with the story, as well as instructions and suggestions.
In a Ward I used to live in, we had a wonderful Primary Activity Day, and I shared the particulars in this kit. We wanted the children to understand what a testimony is and how to share it, so we asked the children to come in their Sunday best clothes. The children learned about things they could express thanks for, and contributed leaves to a Testimony Tree, shown on the cover. We started in the Primary room with instruction, then we had the children sit in the chapel, where each child had an opportunity to stand at the pulpit, and they could bear their testimonies if they wanted to. If they didn’t want to say anything, they could just stand there. They were told how to share their feelings and what to do if they needed help.
