Behold Your Little Ones Lesson 19: I Can Be Happy

Teaching Thoughts

  • Send happy face balloons home with your class to keep passing the smile.
  • Share a smile with some smile face stickers! 
  • Make a fake birthday cake (or use one of the plastic toy ones) with several slices.  On each slice, put a picture of something that helps us to be happy or a saying from the lesson or songs so that you can't see it until you slice the cake.

The following are LDS.org resources unless otherwise stated.
