February Sharing Time WK 1

I love what is has in the outline, so I'm adding to it. As you are talking about what goes on in each of the 3 sections you can have the different cut-outs to go along with it and put it onto the board.
For example: Temple Ordinances, you could ask "where does this go?" Mortal life, but you could also touch on the fact that in the temple we perform ordinances for those that are dead so they can have the same blessings.
Handicap children: Mortal life, we are each given trials in this life.
Etc.
Included with the cut-outs are cards that you can also  you to go along with each "phase" that you talk about.

And whip out those markers/crayons! I'm looking forward to seeing all the kids' drawings! I love it when ours gets time to draw the cutest things come out of those small moments. Below is a download to handout to each of the kids as instructed in the outline.

January Sharing Time WK 4

Hello ladies! It's been too long since a ST has been posted. But with orders dying down now that you are all ready for 2014, I'm ready to get back into the swing of things and am so excited to start back up with sharing ideas for Sharing Times!

When I think of following the Savior, I think of sheep. They are just good followers (as we can see in the Parable too) so this game is with sheep.

Materials Needed:
Printouts
Sticky Hand/Sticky darts (dollar store)
Tape/Magnets
Scissors

*HOW TO PLAY: Put all the sheep onto the board scattered around (not behind the "pen") with tape on the back (you could put up the scenarios up too behind the sheep or just have them in your hand/on table.) Put up the "fence" in the middle or the bottom of the board so that as the kids "catch" the sheep they can put it back into the "pen". Have kids come up and using sticky hand try to hit one of the sheep. (I usually give the bigger kids 3 tries and then pick a sheep and the little kids 4 tries). After the kids hit the sheep pick a scenario and asked what the kids would do and expound on what they say and why it's a good way that we can follow Jesus.

*SUNDAY: Begin by briefly sharing how before we came to Earth Heavenly Father presented a Plan for us to be able to return to be with Him one day. It is through Jesus Christ that we are able to return to Heavenly Father. While we are on Earth we have a perfect example to follow, Jesus Christ. But what does it mean, when we say "Follow Jesus Christ?"
Following Jesus Christ means that we are willing to do what He has asked us to do. By following the commandments and listening to the prophet we will be able to know how we can follow Jesus.

Say "all my sheep have gotten out the the pen!" You need to help me catch all my sheep and we'll learn ways that we can follow Jesus.


I've included black scenario cards so you can add your own too.


Sheena, over at Little LDS Ideas, has another fun idea for this week's Sharing Time, playing a little fishing game. Head over to check it out HERE.

February Editable Newsletter

Thank you all so much for your support the last month or so. I was overwhelmed with orders and I took a week break from everything (it was amazing and passed quickly with a stomach bug thrown in) but now I'm back and am able to get back onto track. If you've sent an email in the last week, I've gotten it but it may take a bit to get to your email.
