Children will realize that taking the sacrament helps them remember their baptismal covenants in Primary 3 Lesson 33: The Sacrament Reminds Us of Our Covenants.
Sugardoodle's Sharing Time kit on Keeping Covenants is a great compliment to this lesson as it talks about promises and uses different activities.
