Temples are special. Children need to be taught what happens there, and how they can be prepared to go to the temple when they are old enough. This week I have two book downloads for you to help you in teaching children about temples!
If you’re like a lot of people, running out of ideas for things to do can be a problem. Here’s a collection of ideas for families, and it’s absolutely FREE! There are ideas for planning, family service, holiday service, and service to neighbors and others. So in case you didn’t get that, the ideas are about FHE activities for serving others. There are tons of ideas, and most could be adapted for use with other groups of people.
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.
The 2018 Primary theme is “I Am a Child of God,” and I have two FREE downloads that support that theme! The books can be printed, copied, and the files can be shared with others. They can be used for sharing time, your classroom, Family Home Evening, or for general use, such as keeping kids quiet and occupied in church or at home.
The first one is “I Am a Child of God Activity Book,” and the second one is “Gospel Games: I Am a Beloved Child of Heavenly Father.” Both of them have games and activities that can help teach kids that they are children of God.
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.
