We like to teach children that they should plan on going on a mission, but what does that really mean? I have two FREE book downloads that can be used in Primary or at home to help children understand what a missionary teaches and what they do. The first one is based on the old system with six lessons, with activities for children about each of the basic concepts in those lessons.
Once upon a time, there was a horse about to be sold to the slaughterhouse, and a man who saw something special in him. The horse was saved, and he became a celebrated show jumper. His name was Snowman.
Once upon a time, someone gave me a crippled horse. He was in pain, but there was something special about him. It turned out he had been stolen, and somebody tracked him down and I let him go back to his owner. He had once been a champion, and was rehabilitated. His name was Rebel.
This week I have a great kit for your FREE download! It’s a kit with parts to a chart that you can use to teach children about the Plan of Salvation. Put it together while explaining God’s plan of happiness.
Use this kit any way you want. You can use it in sharing time, in a class, in FHE, or at home for the children to play with. You can even give the file away to your friends.
This FREE download is for a versatile kit that has stick puppets of family members. Stick puppets are very easy and simple to make, and can be used for a variety of purposes. The kit includes both full color and black-and-white puppets of Mother, Father, Aunt, Uncle, Grandpa, Grandma, Brother, Sister, and Cousins. Some have variations in skin, hair, and eye colors. They could also be used to represent friends and acquaintances.
What’s a sharing time kit? Well….
The first time I was a Primary president, it was in a small Ward in a tiny town in Oregon with a little Primary of about 40 children. I had one counselor and a secretary who seldom if ever showed up, so my other counselor and myself were often stuck without any planned sharing time. We also had a few teachers who would just not show up without notice.
