Alma 36:6, 20 24
Repentance brings me joy.
Read Alma 36:20 to the children, and ask them to listen for how Alma felt. Invite them to name some things that bring them joy. Show a picture of the Savior, and explain that Alma felt joy because Jesus Christ forgave his sins.
(Recommend print on card stock)
Give each of the children a piece of paper with a happy face on one side and a sad face on the other. Ask them to listen while you read Alma 36:6 and choose which face they should hold up....Ask the children to listen while you read Alma 36:24 about the good choices he made later and to hold up the correct face.
Here is Happy Sad faces from another lesson about Forgiveness, but they still work(:
Sing together a song about Jesus Christ, such as "He sent His Son" (Children's songbook 34-35) Bear your testimony that Jesus came to earth to save us from sin and bring us joy.

Come follow Me- For Primary page 114 “Read Alma 37:6-7.. show a picture of small things that accumulate into big things...testify that even small, simple actions can make a big difference in our lives and in the lives of others.”

Mitzi at Comefollowmekid.com grabbed this from the Family Fun section. It says:
Family Study Fun:
1.”...ask someone to to hold this pretend Liahona. Pick a small object to use as treasure.
2. Have someone leave the room while the rest hide the treasure. Then ask the person to come back in the room and try to find it.
3. If the person shares one way they can keep the commandments this week, the person with the Liahona can point them toward the treasure.
4.Each person takes a turn searching and holding the Liahona.
Isn't that cute?!
Here is a printable that can be that pretend Liahona. Remember it can be printed as a coloring page so your kids can add their own creative touch to their Liahona.
Here is another one from Mitzi at comefollowmekid.com This is what she said: "...these chapters are full of things Alma wanted to teach his kids, it would be fun to have us parents write notes to our own kids sharing our testimonies of Christ with them as well.
I love it! I have a little one sounding words out and figuring out the reading. I would be neat for her to do that with my testimony.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 114 "Sing together a song about scripture study. such as "Search, Ponder, and Pray" or "As I Search the Holy Scriptures" What blessings of scripture study are mentioned in the song?"

I haven't made a new song for awhile, and I think teaching music to children is sooo important, it is how those littles are learning the gospel. So I made an interactive song for "As I Search the Holy Scriptures."
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 114 “Review with the children the story of the conversion of Alma the Younger in Alma 36:6-21. Write on slips of paper words and phrases from these verses that describe how Alma felt, and put them on the board. Ask the children to sort the slips of paper into two groups: things Alma felt before he remembered what his father taught about the Savior and the things he felt after he remembered. Read together Alma 36:17-20, and testify to the children that Jesus Christ forgives us when we repent.”
For those that are teaching a large group and need it bigger:
Draw or display a bucket. How many drops of water would it take to fill the bucket? Help the children recognize that many small drops will be needed to fill the bucket. How does this relate to Alma 37:6-7? How is reading the scriptures like adding little drops of water to a bucket?
