Lesson Ideas

Remember the Sabbath Day- For each activity a child says is good to do on Sunday, he can put a piece of manna into the basket.

The Lord's Day- A paper folding game- You could glue in pictures instead of words.  Good way to keep some kids attention.

Lily's Sunday Morning- Find Lily's matching socks so she can go to church

Getting Ready for Church- Find the objects- will have to read outloud or do together

Going to Church- Maze

Saturday is a Special Day- Find the missing objects

What is This?- Guess the pictures

Remember Jesus Christ during the Sacrament- Put together this wheel to use during the sacrament

Sunday Activities- Skip the unscrambling and use the pictures to talk about different activities
