There’s a valuable lesson children (and a lot of adults) need to learn, and that is that you can’t tell much about people – or animals – just by looking at them. This FREE download is of a book about two horses. One horse was Snowman, a famous show jumper who was rescued from being made into dog food and/or glue by a horseman who saw something special in him. The other horse was Rebel, a Morgan horse which I once owned, and he was crippled. My family and I kept wondering whether we should have him put down because he was in pain, but fortunately we did not, and his story also turned out to be remarkable.
In my local Primary, they hand out activity pages for General Conference. That’s because it’s super hard for little kids to pay attention for hours and hours over a two-day span. Heck, it’s hard for adults, and I usually need to read the report to remember what was said. That’s because I “sometimes” fall asleep…. even though the talks are inspired and interesting.
This book has activities to help children pay attention, or at least to learn something about General Conference. You can print pages out from your FREE download and use them in any way you choose, including giving them to friends and passing copies out to your own Primary.
You’ve probably seen those cute puppets people make with paper bags. They’re easy and inexpensive to make. The problem is finding some to make, or making them yourself, right?
Well, here’s a FREE book download with literally dozens of paper puppets you can make. There are scripture characters, animals, and even objects such as scriptures. Just print off the one or two pages needed. Follow the instructions to color, cut out, and mount the pieces with tape or glue onto the paper bags, and you have your own paper bag puppet!
This week I have a FREE download to help you teach children about obedience. Learning this is important, not least for the child’s safety and well-being. This book helps to teach children about obedience to both parents and God. When children learn that they are asked to do or not do things because they are loved and cherished, they can better understand the importance of paying attention to requests, laws, and commandments.
You may use this download any way you wish: print it, make changes to it, and share it. Use for sharing time, in a class, FHE, or for general use (such as letting kids use it at home).
This book download will be accessible from the Featured Downloads page for a week (Thursday through Wednesday). If you want it after this week is up, just look around on the website and you’ll find it on another page, still free. This particular book will be found on the Activities page.
