{Sharing Time} When I am baptized, I make a covenant with God.

Encourage understanding: Ask a child to come to the front of the room and hold his or her arms out. Then place a book in each hand. Read Mosiah 18:7–11. Explain that one of the covenants we make when we are baptized is to “bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light.” Ask the child holding the books if his or her arms are getting tired. Have two other children help hold up his or her arms. Discuss some burdens children might have, such as being teased, being sick, feeling alone, or struggling in school. Ask the children how they can help make each other’s burdens lighter.

Using children in visual demonstrations will get their attention and prepare them to learn. For example, this activity shows children demonstrating the concept of bearing one another’s burdens.
Encourage application: Tell the children that baptism is the gate that leads to the path to eternal life (see2 Nephi 31:17). On one side of the room place a picture of a child being baptized. On the other side of the room place a picture of the Savior, and explain that in this activity this picture represents eternal life. Tell the children that we stay on the path to eternal life when we keep our baptismal covenants. Briefly review these covenants (remembering Jesus Christ, obeying the commandments, and helping others). Give each child a paper with a CTR shield drawn on it. Have the children write on their paper a commandment that will help them keep their baptismal covenants (they may draw pictures to represent the commandment they choose). Invite a child to place his or her paper on the floor between the two pictures. If possible, help the children find the commandment in their scriptures and read it together. Repeat until the children have made a path between the pictures.
I really love what the outline suggests and just have a couple things to spice it up a bit! Here’s a printout for the scripture in Mosiah.

Place a picture of Christ being baptized on the chalkboard/bulletin board at the front of the room.  Dress…
