I can be a light unto the world.
Song: “I Am Like a Star”
This is a great Primary song that introduces children to how important it is to be a light for others to see. Our light can bring others closer to Jesus Christ.
The Lord will bless me if I keep His commandments.
Game: “Commandment Keepers Concentration”
This favorite children’s game serves as a terrific review of ways we can follow the commandments of our Heavenly Father. Children take turns revealing two cards in search of two matching pictures. The player or team with the most matches found is the winner!
I can be a peacemaker.
Activity: “Peacemakers Are Powerful”
This is a multi-use large puzzle that forms a poster that has a cute visual with the words “Peacemakers Are Powerful!” on it. It can be used in many ways, but one suggestion would be to place questions on the back of each picture from what you taught in your lesson concerning peacemakers. Divide the group into two teams and have them take turns picking a puzzle piece and answering the question. If they answer correctly, have them pick a number from a sack (or roll a dice) to receive their points. Once all the puzzle pieces have been revealed and answered they add up their scores to determine the winner!
Song: “Jesus Said Love Everyone”
This is a great song from Primary that teaches us how to love and be peacemakers to everyone we know!
I can obey the Lords commandments even when I don’t understand the reasons for them.
Story: “Annand Obeys His Father”
Annand learns an important lesson about obeying even when we don’t understand why in this cutely illustrated story about the importance of obedience.
*This Come Follow Me bundle includes black and white versions of the songs for optional coloring pages.
