{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ was chosen to be our Savior

Reactions: 
I love what's in the outline! There are so many options to be creative with the little letters!


Introduce the doctrine: Write on the board “Jesus Christ was ______ to be our Savior.” Have the letters c, h, o, s, e, and n scattered around the room. Let the children unscramble the letters to complete the sentence. Ask them to read Moses 4:2 to check their answer. Read the statement on the board together.




Here's my idea:

Attach each letter to the backs picture in any order. Then flip the pictures (so only the letters show) onto the board/table.

On the board write:

How was Jesus chosen to be our Savior in these pictures?


Events that I've chosen for the download:

The birth of Jesus: 
Heavenly Father gave Jesus a body so that He could come to Earth. While on the Earth, He was perfect. In order for Jesus to be able to save us so we can return to be with Heavenly Father, He needed to come to Earth.

Jesus was Baptized:
Because Jesus was perfect, He didn't need to be baptized. He was baptized to show us and to follow Heavenly Father. He was chosen to be an example to us.

Garden of Gethsemane:
Here in the Garden, Jesus was chosen and volunteered to suffer for our sins, suffer for when we are hurt and need help. He was in so much pain that He bled from the pores (have the kids look at the back of their hand and point out their pores) on His body. He was chosen because He loves us and wants us to return to live with Heavenly Father.

The Resurrection:
Because Jesus was resurrected, we will be too. He was chosen to do this because without it our bodies and spirits would not be able to rise again after we die.

(I included these because they are evidence of Him being our Savior with the piercings on His hands and feet. You can easily leave these out and choose other pictures, but I love that we can know that He visited these people and other after He died)

Jesus Visits the Nephites and blesses the children
Jesus visits the Apostles


Another way to use the fun letters, is you could have a race from one side of the room to the other with 2 sets of pictures and letters. And the "teams" try and figure out what the word is.

Animal Face Paper Plates
Materials Needed:
-Paper plates
-Glue (have you seen glue sponges?!)

For the base:
- Tissue paper/ torn construction paper/markers/crayons
For the face:
-Construction paper/foam
Let the kids glue/color the base of the animal. For the faces, cut out white circles for the eyes and the mouths/noses/ etc prior and let the kids make their animals any which way.






I LOVED this idea for Animal Bowling! All you need is toilet paper rolls (or a paper towel roll)

and these cute printouts! 
Each animals strip is 2 inch tall (cut the toilet rolls in half)

Included in the download are 6 animals!

{Sunbeams} Primary 1, Lesson 11

Reactions: 


Who doesn't love to go fishing for this lesson! Attach the animals from the pdf as your "fish". Isn't the walrus adorable?!
You could also play a game by blindfolding (or dark sunglasses) the kids and try and "pin" the animals onto the Earth.
** Print the Earth on Legal Size (8.5x14)**

Follow the outline to play with some Jonah and the whale cut-outs ( Jonah and a whale included)
Then talk about the loaves and the fishes. For an activity you could bring in some numbers and count the number of fish and the number of loaves.

{CTR} Primary 2, Lesson 11

Reactions: 



I LOVE this Bright Ideas! And shows just how we can be a member missionary!


For this lesson, play a game of flashlight tag!

Share the scripture Matthew 5:16
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven"

Bring in a flashlight and play some "tag" with questions about how we can be a missionary by being an example to those around us. Shine the light on someone to share how by our example we are being a missionary. Then let the child you picked have a turn to "tag" someone.



Here's some examples:

We are a missionary and are examples 
in our conversations with others by having clean language and being careful not to offend others.

We can help others who are alone or sick and lift their spirits.

We can be kind and easy to forgive others and be grateful.

We can dress modestly.

We obey the Word of Wisdom


Every day there are opportunities to shine our light. The world is moving further away from Heavenly Father's commandments, this will make us stand out even more giving us more chances to be missionaries.


And we just had the missionaries over for dinner and they shared this video with us and I thought it was PERFECT for teaching us about being a missionary just by our examples and being a friend.

{CTR} Primary 2, Lesson 10

Reactions: 

I'm really excited about this one because we did this with our boys (4 and 7) because prayers were getting a little rambunctious! You'll need scissors and a bunch of willing hands for all these letters but the kids will have a bunch of fun!

There's four words to go with each of the four body parts that we use in prayer. Head, mouth, arms, and eyes --- bow, fold, close, shut.

Scatter the letters on the floor. For the younger kids that just know the letters (unless you've got my 4 year old who refuses to say anything about any letters) you can write the words up on the board. And to challenge the older kids you can say the words one at a time. Select just 2-3 kids for each word to quickly find the letters for added fun bring in a stop watch and race to beat it before it goes off!
Put the body parts up on the board and have the tape handy as they find the letters that spell each word.

*If you don't like "shut" you can easily just use "close" twice but I wanted another word and my husband piped in*
Head= Bow
Mouth=Shut
Arms=Fold
Eyes= Close











Here's some prayers puzzles too that you can hide the pieces or number them and have each piece have a question about prayer. It includes both "boy" and "girl"
