Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • This file folder game from Green Jell-O with Carrot would be a great addition to your lesson- you can do it together as a class then use it during nursery playtime in the future.
  • Remember the LDS Media App has the music for Primary songs. You can put together a playlist of family songs and dance around to it or have it in the background as they enter.

The following are links to resources unless otherwise stated.

  • 3 Temple cards- turn these into a mini flip book with the addition of their family photo or make them into lacing cards, punching holes around the temple borders.

Activity Ideas

My Eternal Family- Cut outs that you can use to stand up and show what things can help us be an eternal family.

Together Forever- Temple background with a family to put on in front.  Bushes can be inserted that have phrases that lead us to being together forever like "Be Kind"

My Family Can Be Forever- A house to build with scriptures to read.  You could use this in your lesson and build the house and you learn points or just use it as puzzle for an activity and glue a picture of the child's family on it when they are done.

Temple Hidden Picture- These hidden pictures are great for FHE but also if you have a small older nursery, you could do these together of if you draw the pictures they need to find, individually.  I know that my nursery aged kids when in the older category loved doing these.

Temples Bless Families- A Temple mobile with spots for family. You could put stickers instead or just make one of your family with the lesson.

A Happy Family- You can make a layered picture of a family in front of a temple. Use this family picture, have the kids draw their own, or get a family picture beforehand.
