D&C 33:2-3, 6-10
I can share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Invite the children to try to say a phrase like "God loves you" with their mouths closed. Point out that we can't teach people about the gospel if we don't open our mouths. Read D&C 33:8-10, and invite the children to open their mouths every-time they hear the phrase "open your mouths."Why does Heavenly Father want us to open our mouths and share the gospel with others?
Place paper dolls or pictures of people around the room. Invite the children to find the people and gather them to the front of the room. Read D&C 33:6, and explain what it means that the Lord will "gather (His) elect." Testify that we can help gather people to Lord as we share the gospel.
Here are some name tags for the kids to wear while they are being missionaries.
Mitzi at comefollowmekid.com has some white name tags if you don't want to drain the black ink from your printer.
My son just got called to Honduras, Tegucigalpa. So the missionary lesson has had a special meaning for me(:
This "Build a Missionary" game , makes me laugh. I wish it was this easy to build a missionary(: Lots of shopping, getting a visa, paper work.....but we are so excited!
This activity has questions from the older section of the lesson.
Sing a song about sharing the gospel, such as "I Want to Be a Missionary Now." (CSB 168). Help the children think of ways they can help other people learn about Jesus Christ.

I can build my life on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Show the children a picture of the foundation of a building and ask them to describe it. Why does a building need a strong foundation? Read to the children D&C 33:12-13, and explain that the Lord wants us to build our lives on His gospel. Help the children think of some ways they can build their lives on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I love the story of this beautiful temple. You can learn a little bit about all the work they put into the foundation in the video, but I don't recommend sharing all of it with children, it's too long, just sum it up.
Here is a picture you can show them and tell how very important it is to have a strong foundation for the temples.
Here is a recycled activity from last year, but it is kind of perfect for this lesson.

Give the children some objects that they can use to build a tower, such as blocks or plastic cups. Label each object with a picture representing things the Lord said in D&C 33: 14-17. Invite the children to build a tower as you talk with them about how these help us build our lives on Jesus Christ's gospel.
Teach the Doctrine:
I should focus more on the things of God than the things of the earth.
"...What are some "things of the earth" (D&C 30:2) that can distract us from remembering Jesus Christ and His gospel? How can we keep our focus on Him rather than on less important things?"
Object Lesson: Pull out the dollar bill and ask for a volunteer. Tell the child that they must look at the dollar bill the entire time. Set the dollar bill on the table (the child is still looking at it). Then stick the picture of Jesus on the board where the child can’t see. Put a piece of chalk in the child's hand. Tell them to not take their eyes off the dollar bill, but to draw a line to the picture of Jesus and circle it. Share the scripture D&C 30:2. Ask why it was hard to focus on the task, what are some things that distract us from focusing on Jesus Christ?
“...help the children find in D&C 33:8-10 the Lord’s promises to us when we open our mouths to share the gospel.....Ask each child to write inside the mouth a gospel truth they can share with others.”
I suggest putting Gospel truths in the mouth that the children can draw out. Like the 5 things we can bear testimony of. If you want more things for them to draw out, write the scriptures D&C 33: 8-10 on different strips of paper and they can look up the scriptures as you go.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter. This lesson was so fun, hope you enjoy.
