Lesson Ideas

Listen to the Still, Small Voice- Use the idea of a blanket to explain how the Holy Ghost can warm and comfort you. Pin some pictures that also explain what the Holy Ghost does or ways to invite Him into our lives- ex. prayer, love, etc.

Holy Ghost Invitation- A invite that shows ways we can invite the Holy Ghost into our lives.  May be good for coloring

Gifts of the Spirit Treasure Box- Make this treasure box then fill with gems (paper or real).  You can read a few of the scriptures but also tape a picture on to the back of the gems that represents that idea.  Or just fill with other pictures like the ones form the lesson on the cube.  

The Liahona and the Holy Ghost- A mini roller box with illustrations and the story of the Liahona.  You could use the cube pictures from the lesson instead. 

The Kingdom Up on High- You could make this picture into a necklace and hand them out to the kids.

Remember- Cut these pictures out and play a memory game with the older nursery children.  Or use the pictures to create a collage about the Holy Ghost and Baptism.

Tracings- Have each child lie down on a piece of white butcher paper then trace them.  Cut out if possible or just have the child color and decorate (may need help with face).  Explain that the Holy Ghost is a spirit that looks like our bodies.  This was one of the ways that really helped my children understand that the Holy Ghost really looks like us but in Spirit form- not like the ghosts in books.

Listen to the Still, Small Voice- Use the pictures to help talk about the Holy Ghost (put them in a bag and draw them out)
