Come Follow Me 2020, September 7-13, 3 Nephi 1-7, LDS free primary lesson helps
Updated: Sep 8
Before class, place a star on the wall. Invite the children to look for something on the wall that usually isn't there. Tell the children that the Nephites saw a new star in the sky when Jesus was born. Summerize the account in 3 Nephi 1:4-15 and 19-21.
The manual also suggest watching this:
Show the children a picture of the Savior's birth.
Here are some coloring pages from the church:
I made a color by number and put a saying from the primary manual on it.
Sing a favorite Christmas song, such as "The Nativity Song" (Children's Songbook, 52-53)

3 Nephi 1:20
The prophets words are always fulfilled.
The Lord told Nephi, "I will show unto the world that I will fulfill all that which I have caused to be spoken by the mouth of my holy prophets" 3 Nephi 1:13
Show pictures that depict how God has spoken through prophets, such as Noah, and Samuel the Lamanite. Invite the children to share what they know about these stories.
3 Nephi 5:13
I can Follow Jesus Christ.
Mormon declared, "I am a disciple of Jesus Christ." Teach them that a disciple of Jesus Christ tries to follow Him. Share a few things Mormon did to be like Jesus, such as teaching God's word and obeying God's commandments (see 3 Nephi 5:13-18). Help the children think of ways they can be disciples.
I made this in color in case you want to teach with it like you would a flip book, but Black and white is fun because it is not your average coloring page.
Come Follow Me- For Families page 144 “Read 3 Nephi 5:13 and Doctrine and Covenants 41:5, and discuss what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Maybe family members could talk about times they noticed each other being disciples. If you have small children, you might make a badge that says, ”I am a disciple of Jesus Christ,” and let them wear the badge whenever you notice them following the Savior.”
This line keeps gong through my head "by this shall men know ye are my disciples." So I had to post this song again:

Also an old favorite. Some one said they turned this activity into a file folder game...which is genius! Then you can pull it out to review this beautiful principal of trying to be like Jesus.

Mitzi at Comefollowmekid.com is amazing! She has had some of her ideas publish in the "Family fun" portion of the ensign.
She asked me to make a sticker to go on the jar and pieces of paper to write on.
Come Follow Me- For Families page 144 "3 Nephi 2:1-13, 6:15-17. To help your family learn how Santan can deceive us, draw a body, and as your family reads 3 Nephi 2:1-3 and 6:15-17, mark the different parts of the body mentioned. According to these verses, what are some of the ways Satan tempts us to forget God and turn to sin?"
Teach the Doctrine
This isn't just for older children. In fact of was thinking of something I wanted to give to my sunbeams this week and I really liked this object lesson. So I made labels with directions. I'm going to cut a bundle of sticks for each of them, tie the label to them and hand them out this week.
