This week I have a FREEkit to help you to have a GREATPrimary Activity! For this activity, you’ll need to ask the children to bring a lunch and dress in their Sunday best, because part of it will take place in the chapel.
You will teach the children about testimonies: what are they? How do they get one of their own? And how do they tell others about their testimonies? This kit has helps for you to teach these concepts to the children.
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.
