September Sharing Time Week 3

I've put together a fun simple game to get kids talking about ways to honor parents. Create a puzzle with the house or bring out those sticky hands that kids just can't get enough of and stick them around the house as you learn.

September Sharing Time Week 2

For me, this week is about how we can show respect and worship God. This is done through reverence and I read THIS about reverence and I just love that we show reverence in basically everything that we do. We really have many opportunities in our day to show respect towards our Heavenly Father.

What do these commandments tell us?

1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me -- this means that we to only worship Heavenly Father

2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image -- this means that we must love Heavenly Father more than anything else that we have, like toys or video games

3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain -- this means that Heavenly Father is a special person to us and we show respect to Him by only using His name when we are at church, at the temple, asking a question, or saying prayers.  (Be sensitive with this one, family members may not follow this and the children might hear it often.)

4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy -- this means that Sundays are the Lord's day, we go to church, spend time with our families and do activities that we wouldn't do on the other days. (This is also a sensitive one, as it is a personal decision for each family. For example, some families may feel it's okay to play outside with family and others may not)

I was hoping to have more for you, but this week escaped me. I hope you can still use this fun cut/paste activity. To supplement this, check out Little LDS Ideas post for this week, it looks fun and easy to put together!

September Sharing Time Week 1

Summer is over and kiddos are back in school so I am hoping that even with our little newborn and me going to school that I'll be able to get back into the swing of things!

For this week's activity, I thought about this talk from a couple years ago by Elder Keetch. He gave an analogy about the need for commandments and sharks out past the bay that he couldn't see at first until he was given a pair of binoculars and finally saw them. (Recommend this talk, it's amazing and I love it!)

This game was SO much fun to create and play! This game is like Minesweeper, Connect 4, and with a little bit of trivia mixed in. Let's just say, be ready to laminate and add it to your Sunday Box!
* The circles to cut out are 2.5 inches, if you'd like to pull out your circle punch.

Reveal a number, gives a clue for how many sharks! Reveal a Q and get a question about commandments. Add a challenge and try to get a 4 in a row!

Primary 3, Lesson 24

I had these letters and tags for this lesson from several years ago, but with a hard drive crash and the files being on 4shared, I've lost them so I've revamped and created new ones. Enjoy!
