Note: My husband did the lesson on this one for FHE.  He did a brief summary from the lesson then showed the poster.  The next day, we had them color the coloring page above to reinforce what we talked about.  For the activity, we made gifts for the Grandparents which kind of went with how we are a family and are born because of the fall.
