Honesty FHE idea (Apple theme) & Applesauce Cookies

For Family Home Evening we are talking about honesty.  I have included some free printables to help out with the lesson.  You can find them below. 

Story cards that go with this story

Game: We are using this fun "Pinocchio" inspired game to learn a little more about honestly.  This game was included in this primary lesson post (lots of honesty activities included) .  My class had so much fun that I wanted to use it with my kids.

 Print the 2 board games (the girl and boy) and situation cards. Cut the cards mix them up. I'm going to toss them in a brown paper bag.  You will also need blocks, legos, or something you can stack.
Briefly tell the story of Pinocchio and that when he told a lie his nose would grow.  Divide into two groups and give one board to each team.  Take turns drawing a card.  Read the situation.  If the child was dishonest add a block where the nose would be.  If the child was honest take a block away.  Keep going until either a certain number of questions have been asked, a set time period, or you run out of blocks haha.  The team with the smallest nose wins!

For the treat how about delicious Applesauce Cookies.  These tasty cookies are a family favorite and make a fun treat to go along with the story.
