Come Follow Me: Alma 5-7

*Originally posted in 2020
Thank you so much for all of your kind comments this week. I am feeling much better but did not get to updating last weeks post because my parents came to visit.  It was a great week to step away from the computer and spend time with them.  I had so much fun building with my dad (oh I love building things) and visiting with my mom.  It was perfect.  Due to that visit I am late with this week's post and it is quite a bit smaller then normal but I hope there is something that will work for your family this week :)  These ideas were sparked by some of the suggestions in the primary manual.   Here's a peek at what's included:

I am learning a new program so if something isn't working right or you have any questions please let me know!  I hope you have a wonderful week :)

Come Follow Me: Mosiah 4-6

*originally posted in 2020
Happy Sunday!  Sorry for being so late this week-I lost track of the days!  I honestly did not realize yesterday was Saturday until about 9 pm.  Here are some fun lesson helps for Mosiah 4-6.  I am trying something a little different and I included the instructions in the download instead of the post.  Let me know what you think.   Most of these ideas were inspired by the activities in the primary manual.  We are talking about Baptismal covenants and repentance this week.  Service and Loving Others is also another great topic but we spent a lot of time on it last week so I did not add any additional activities for this one.  You can find last week's helps here.  Also if you need additional ideas we've covered all of these topics a few times-type your topic in the search bar and there should be several ideas that pop up for you.  For example This post has a ton of ideas for baptismal covenants.  If you need some help with this please let me know :)

The following activities are included in this week's download found at the end of this post.  The instructions are in the download this week :)

 I do have a puzzle option for this one here

Have a wonderful day!

Come Follow Me: Mosiah 1-3

*Originally posted in 2020
I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter.  I have some really fun ideas to go with this week's Come Follow Me lesson.  We are covering Mosiah 1-3. I followed the Primary manual pretty closely this week in fact I loved all of the ideas and went a little crazy making printables for almost all of the activities in the manual.  If you aren't quite sure how to use one of the activities that might help.  

There are tons of ideas this week!  There is also a second page with some ideas for serving during this time of social distancing.  I asked for some ideas on my facebook page a couple days and the answers were so great!  I included those along with a couple of others.  If you have some ideas please leave them in the comments for others to see :)
On the additional information page I also included the activity from the Come Follow Me primary manual that goes with these recipe cards. It's the very last activity in the manual and it invites the children to use Mosiah 3:19 to come up with a recipe to become like the Savior.  I thought it would be so fun to bake something together and then do this activity. 
This one just a simple fill in the blank.  Print and you are ready to go.  \
 King Benjamin taught us a lot about service.  The next several activities go with that theme (you can also use the search bar on my website and it will pull up more ideas). 

The first idea I had was to create a poster or jar to document the service we provide to our families and others through out the week.  The Warm Fuzzies (and this idea) comes from a talk by President Monson called What Have I done for Someone today?  I plan to show this video clip  or this one is a clip from Conference.  The idea is to place a warm fuzzie (pom pom) in the jar when you provide an act of service.  Once our jar is full we are going to do a special activity as a family-probably a movie night or take out :)  I did include two label options.
Another idea is to print on of these posters and color in a heart or write down the service you did inside each heart.  There is an option for family or individual.  Same idea once its full plan a special surprise or activity to celebrate your accomplishment.  Third printable is inspired by the talk mentioned above.  This one is more of a journal page.
Here are a couple more printables-the I can serve ones are good for brainstorming ways to to serve or it can be used as a journal page.  There is plenty of space to write or draw your answers.  The helping hands comes from the primary manual.  The idea is to trace your hands and share a way you can serve your family.
The primary manual suggests thinking of ways you can serve your family and sing when we're helping we're happy.  I wanted to build on this a little and talk about ways we can serve different people.  Roll the dice and thing of a person and how you can serve them.  I tried to make most of them more general so you can play several times.  Use these just for a discussion or add in the song. 

Another idea in the manual was to memorize this part of Mosiah 2:17.  There is a basic, one that can be colored or traced, and then one that is more for display.
As you tell the story have your children illustrate what is happening.  Draw the tower, the tents, the people gathering, etc.  I did include printable King Benjamins that they can glue on their picture if they do not want to draw him.
This idea is similar to the one in the manual but I am going to use it more as review.  My kids are going to take turns pretending to be King Benjamin (wear the crown and stand on a tower-probably a chair) and share a few things they learned about service during the week and share a few ways they served.

I saw this question in the Individual and Family manual and knew I wanted to discuss it during our scripture study.  They can write or draw their answer.

Mosiah 2:19–25 we learn that all blessings come from Heavenly Father.  My daughter has been asking to play charades so that is one thing we are going to do.  We'll think of something we are grateful for and act it out (maybe draw it) I also included some pages to use as a gratitude journal.  Over the last few weeks I have been trying to focus on being grateful and finding beauty and joy each day.  I had the thought a few times that we should start gratitude journals as part of our writing lesson and after reading through this lesson I knew this would be the perfect time to start.
Cut and paste activity.  Read the verse and match the picture.
Last idea is more of a fun challenge but will keep the scriptures in your child's mind as they work.  These are building challenges.  I like to hang them up as inspiration.  Sometimes I give them certain items to use and other times I let them use whatever they can find.  For smaller creating there are printable King Benjamins that will stand.
That's all for this week.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  Also share your ideas for service in the comments...I love hearing your ideas!  Have a wonderful Easter and week!
