Activity Ideas

The Nephites Learn of the Sacrament- Tell the story and color the picture or make it into a book.  It's always fun to add stickers to little booklets or small pictures of themselves in the artwork if you can manage it. Since there are 3 pictures you could string them on a piece of yarn with straws or foam shapes separating the pictures to make a necklace too.

Taking the Sacrament- This is a door hanger that you can paste pictures on of the Savior.  Talk about each picture during your lesson or as you do the activity. For older kids, do the challenge it mentions just above the hanger. 

The Sacrament- A cut and paste activity about what we do for the sacrament.  Great to go along with the lesson.

Remember Him- A great picture wheel to color and have fun with- good for the lesson too.

Remember- You can play a matching game with these pictures or just cut and paste. You could also tape some onto a string (matching pairs together so it shows on both sides) and make it into a belt or sash or a string to just hang up somewhere.

On the Road to Emmaus- Make this one into a puzzle to put together as a class then sing the song and practice what it says.

Our Savior, Jesus Christ- Jesus at the last supper- use as a visual during the lesson.

Coloring Pages

Be Grateful for the Sacrament- 4 small pictures to color here.  Cut them out and attach to straws/sticks and use them to introduce primary songs about the sacrament.

My Family is Blessed When We Remember Jesus Christ

Remembering Jesus Christ- Pictures to color of the first sacrament. You could make two of the pictures puppets and act it out with the 3rd picture as the center.
