Activity Ideas

No Need to Sail Uncharted Seas- Bright Idea poster

A Busy Day for Hands- Super short story on how our hands can be obedient

Compass of Faith- Finger puppets and dot to dot about the Liahona 

The Story of the Wise Man and the Foolish Man- Say whether the activities lead you to a rock or sand foundation. Sing the song first then briefly explain it. Have the kids pick a strip of paper out of a bag and put it on a rock or pile of sand for fun.

Keep the Commandments- Move the people close to Jesus as they are obedient. I'd ignore the words and give examples then have one child at a time move the person forward or backwards until you get to Jesus
