My Primary 6 Lesson 44 handout packet includes
Heaven’s Windows- Print out and cut each window so it will open. Glue another sheet of paper behind it so your class can write the blessings they receive when they pay their tithing inside the window.
Large tithing slip to make it easy to show how to fill it out and practice.
Chicken Scratch money to practice
Budget situations. Give one card to each person in your class. Have them figure out their tithing either with the pretend money or by writing it down. Make it more fun by bringing in items and “pricing” them to make a store. After your class pays their tithing, have them write down the other things they can buy with the rest of their money. It’s also a great opportunity to talk about filling out the rest of the slip like fast offerings and the missionary fund.
