Primary 3 Lesson 36: Showing Love for Jesus Christ is about learning to show love for Jesus by doing what He asks.
- Start the lesson out by giving out hugs and heart stickers and telling each child that Jesus and Heavenly Father love them.
- Cover a piece of cardboard with foil and write on it, "Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me" so it's like a mirror. Let each child decorate it with some heart or other fun stickers then talk about ways we can show back.
- There is a nice scripture activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.
