Come Follow Me- For Primary page 33 "Display pictures of people from various ethic and cultural backgrounds...Ask the children to describe some of the details they see in the pictures. Open the scriptures to 2 Nephi 26:33 and read "(Jesus Christ) inviteth them all to come unto him."
Have the children pull these pictures out of a bag or a bowl. Talk about the details, as you string them onto some yarn. With small children they can add fruit loops or cheerios, to their individual necklaces.
Here is some pictures I gathered off the internet. They look like they will would be fun to talk about the different ethnic backgrounds.
What can we do to come unto the Savior?
Use the visual to show how we can come closer to Jesus.
Sing a song with the children about loving all people, such as "I'll Walk with You"
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 33 "Consider how you will help the children in your class feel that the Book of Mormon is "a blessing unto them from the hand of God"(2 Nephi 30:6).
Here is a coloring page.
This is soooo wrong having God's robe black. She's only 6 I still have time to teach her.(:
Show the children a Book of Mormon wrapped as a gift, and tell them that something valuable is inside. Let them hold the gift, and give clues to help them guess what it is.
Here are some Book of Mormon clues:
Read 2 Nephi 28:2 to the children. Explain that Nephi saw that the Book of Mormon would "be great worth" to us, which means it would help bless us......Share your favorite verse or story from the Book of Mormon, and invite the children to share theirs. Show pictures to give ideas.
Here is a Book of Mormon matching game. After each match is made you can tell or review the Book of Mormon story.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 34 "Help the children put together a simple puzzle or build something with blocks. Give them one puzzle piece or one block at a time, and while building, explain that this is the way Heavenly Father teaches us-one truth at a time. What would happen if we tried to put all of the pieces together at once?"
This idea is from Mitzi at comefollowmekid.com, her ideas are my most favorite to make. She has other pattern block mats on her page and other really hands on ideas to make CFM fun.
These shapes came from
You can print them here, they are also in Black and White, if you would like to color your own.
For older children
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 34 "Ask the children to create a card or letter inviting someone to come to Jesus Christ. Encourage them to use a phrase from these verses in their invitation."
Here are some cards waiting to be written in.
"Invite the children to draw a picture of Jesus with many different children"
Help the children read and understand 2 Nephi 28:27-30, looking for answers to a questions like this: What do these verses teach about people who believe they have enough truth and need no more?
Here is an idea for for an object lesson:
Fill a canning jar with golf balls, say that it represents the knowledge that we get from the Bible. Ask the children if they think the jar is full. Explain that a lot of people think that is all the knowledge we need or all the Gospel that we need. Then read 2 Nephi 28:27-30, (may even what to teach the map printable at the bottom of the page) then testify that Jesus loves us and wants us to enjoy the blessings from the Book of Mormon. Then pour sand into the jar, this will fill in all the space in the jar. Testify how much more we learn from having the fullness of the gospel, and how much happier, or blessed we can be be because of these eternal truths.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 35 "Show the children a map of the world, and help them match each book with the part of the world it came from. Read and discuss 2 Nephi 29:8, why did God give us two "testimonies" or books of scripture that teach us about him?
I guess I need to read ahead, because I've posted this printable twice this year. For those of you who haven't taught with it, it's all yours.
What a fun Week!
See you next week.
