Craft Sticks – Notches

Handed out one of these [craft sticks] to each one [student. After the lesson], … they handed their stick back to me. I talked about how each of us may be weak (like the notches in the stick can weaken the stick) but together, the sticks can build a wonderful strong structure. All of us sharing our testimonies can strengthen each other…. If you have never tried this sort of lesson,…

Sharing the Light

Object Lesson

Because this lesson uses live flame, it is best done out of doors at camp or family home evening. “Primary teacher Pam Lareaux told about a time her grandmother took her into a darkened room, lit a candle, and showed Pam how she could light other candles from her own. Then Pam’s grandmother taught her the importance of being an example and sharing her testimony. The lesson was so powerful…

The Gospel Protects Us

Object Lesson

Wrap a raw egg in *several* layers of egg cartons and tape. Invite students to bounce the bundle off the wall or drop it on the floor. Take the package back, pulled it apart, and showed the students the sheltered, unbroken egg inside. Teach your students that the gospel was designed to protect each of them in the same way—by helping them build layers of testimony as they kept the…

Death of a Testimony

Object Lesson

Students will see the outline of the body and be told their testimony has died. It is then up to them to search and discover the “clues” as to what caused the death of their testimony. Clues such as gossiping, lying, drinking, etc are placed around the room. Example: We wrote things about a fictitious youth on a crumbled up piece of paper for the gossiping clue.

Share Your Light

Object Lesson

In a darkened room, light one of the candles with the match or lighter and explain that this candle can represent anyone. Use the lit candle to the light the other candle(s) and explain that when we share our testimonies of the Gospel (the Love of God, or the Light of Christ), our light does not diminish, but rather both candles glow brightly. Notice, also, that the more candles are…

Bad Habits are Hard to Break

Object Lesson

This object lesson works best for senior primary aged kids through adults. Choose a member to help you. I usually always choose a gentleman who looks like he is fairly strong. Hand him one sheet of paper and ask him to rip it in two. Obviously he will be able to accomplish it easily. Then hand him the ream (or several sheets of paper) and ask him to rip the…

Try it out

Object Lesson

As you’re explaining a Gospel principle that you really want others to come to know for themselves, pull out a piece of fruit, such as an apple, and begin eating it while you’re in the midst of your discussion. Continue your discussion as you normally would. Stop occassionally and tell the others how delicious the fruit you’re eating is! Then continue again with your discussion. After stopping and telling the…

Experiment Upon the Word

Object Lesson

Decide beforehand which “theory” you are going to test. It could be something simple like theory of gravity, or something else that both you and your audience understand very well. I will use gravity for my example here. You say, “I am going to test the theory of gravity today. I have here some different size and weight of balls and marbles.” Now leave the items and go to the…

How strong is your foundation?

Object Lesson

I have 2 small drawstring bags, one filled with Legos and one filled with junk (broken Popsicle sticks, small rocks, broken hunks of concrete, twigs, etc.) I have 2 children each come to the front of the room, in view of all, and build a house out of their materials, so we can then compare the different “houses”. Our good, carefully thought out decisions are like the legos. If we…
