I am blessed because of the Priesthood.
Activity: “Priesthood Blessings”
What a fun way to review and learn about some of the wonderful blessings we receive because of the priesthood! Children answer questions about your lesson concerning the blessings of the priesthood and then, if correct, get to turn over a letter from the word PRIESTHOOD. The object of this activity is to review or learn about blessings of the priesthood and find the pictures of these blessings before time is up!
Song: “The Priesthood Is Restored”
This is a wonderful song that goes right along with how important the priesthood is for all of us and that it is here NOW!
The Lord’s chosen servants lead His church.
Game: “Follow the Prophet!”
This board game can be played by individual players or divide your group into two teams. Everyone puts their marker on “Start”. Players move towards true happiness first. They roll the dice to move. If they land on a happy face, they pick a question or statement from the “Follow the Prophet” sack. On their next turn they will go forward. If they land on a sad face, they pick a slip from the “Don’t Follow the Prophet” and on their next turn they go backward toward “Super Sadness”. The first team or player to get to the finish or “True Happiness” is the winner. Help the children understand how following the prophet makes us truly happy.
Carefully living my covenants brings blessings.
Song: “I Can Be Valiant”
This is a perfect song to introduce or review how important living our covenants is and that it will bring blessings to those who do live carefully by their covenants.
Poster: “I Will Keep My Covenants Valiantly!”
Give each of your children this fun and unique poster to color and put up in their bedroom and remind them of the covenants they are keeping. It can also be printed in color and they can just take it home and display it in their room. This is a great handout and reminder for them to keep the covenants they have made!
*This Come Follow Me bundle includes black and white versions of the songs for optional coloring pages.
