Here are is a fun activity for back-to-school…I have posted this before, but this time I have adapted it to be done with this year’s program songs.
Fill a backpack with various school supplies. Attach the saying to each one. Have a child choose an item from the backpack and then sing the corresponding song.
Glue Stick – Stick to the Savior’s example like glue. If you do so, you will always choose the right. Song: “He Sent His Son” p. 37
Pencil – The scriptures contain the written words of Prophets. We can read them tolearn how to return to our Heavenly Father and Savior.Song: Your song of choice about prophets.
Crayons – Priesthood ordinances and temple work “color” our lives… they bless us andmake it possible for our families to be together forever. Song: Your song of choice.
Sharpener – Stay “sharp” and be in-tune. When you’re baptized and confirmed, you become a member of the church & receive the Holy Ghost. He will comfort andguide you and help you know the truth. Song: “Baptism” p. 100
Eraser – Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can repent and be forgiven of our
sins. We can “erase” our mistakes!
Song: “I Stand All Amazed” p. 193 Hymn Book
Calculator – The best way to “calculate” how to return to Heavenly Father is to follow
His plan.Song: “I Will Follow God’s Plan” p. 164
Ruler – Parents and children have important responsibilities in families. Children can show love to their parents by obeying them and keeping the “rules”.Song: “The Family is of God” p. 28-29 of Sharing Time Outline Scissors – “Cut” things from your life that aren’t pleasing to Heavenly Father. Participating in wholesome activities will strengthen you and your family. Song: “Seek the Lord Early” p. 108
