Game: “Obey Today” Group Bingo
This is a fun group bingo game for the whole family or class! After teaching your lesson concerning the blessings that come from obeying, you will divide the group into two teams. They take turns picking a question you have created from your lesson, answer it, and then get to pick a bingo card from the paper sack. They place it on the corresponding picture on the bingo board. The first team to put the last picture to complete a bingo (4 in a row) wins points. Points are also given for the team who completes the “X” and the “picture frame”. This is a wonderful way to have fun and realize how happy being obedient to God’s commandments can make us feel.
Song: “Keep The Commandments”
This Primary song is perfect in teaching how we feel safe and peaceful when we obey God’s commandments.
Game: “Count Your Blessings”
This fun paper and pencil activity will help the children think about the blessings they receive through obedience to God’s commandments. Give each player a sheet of paper and a pencil. They take turns picking a letter from the paper sack and write down a blessing they have or can receive. If they have a unique word, they get more points. Play as many letters as you can until time is up. The player with the most points is the winner. This is a great way to realize how many different blessings we receive all the time!
