Lesson Ideas

Inviting the Spirit- Different scenes to color that show ways to invite the Spirit

The Holy Ghost Can Help Me- Invitation to color

Gifts of the Spirit Treasure Chest- Make a paper treasure chest- use some little objects instead of the gems that represent the gifts

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.

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)
