starburst temple work

Object Lesson

Bring a small candy like a starburst, set it on the table and ask “who wants the candy? Who REALLY wants the candy? ” Whoever seems most eager, pick for the example. Say, “Joey, (or whoever) you really want the candy. It’ll make you very happy. So you can have it, but you can’t use any part of your body to pick it up or unwrap it, you can only…

Comb your hair

Object Lesson

Let them know they will be unable to participate in the lesson, but they can listen. Only when you remove…

Families can be sealed together

Object Lesson

Get two envelopes; put a picture of the temple on one envelope. Put cut-outs (paper dolls? magazine people?) of family members in each envelope. Seal shut the envelope with the temple picture. All the while, talk about the one family going to the temple and the other not going. Then dump both envelopes containing families upside down. The family in the envelope that was not sealed will fall out all…
