The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 9: Priesthood Blessings and Ordinances is to understand the importance of priesthood blessings and ordinances.
The following are links to LDS.org resources unless otherwise stated.
Joseph and Oliver Are Given the Priesthood (about 2 1/2 minutes)- Illustrated scripture story
Priesthood Leaders (about 3 minutes)- Illustrated scripture story
Blessings of the Priesthood (about 3 minutes)- The priesthood is the power of God
Jesus Chooses His Apostles (about 2 minutes)- Jesus sets his apostles apart

The Primary 3 Lesson 9 packet includes:
- 1 Postcard template with the question in manual about asking about a Priesthood blessing. You could put the Priesthood Power coloring page on the other side or just have them draw a picture
- A Priesthood Power Coloring Page in 2 sizes- the second size is made to go on the back side of the postcard These cute graphics from Melonheadz
- A Priesthood Blesses Me Coloring Page
- Pinwheel Sheet with Priesthood Power stars- Color then cut on the dashed lines to make it into a pinwheel. I personally prefer to put the pin in the top of the eraser as it usually sticks out a little if you don't. Plus the kids can twirl it.
