I can choose the right when others try to get me to do wrong.
The manual suggest watching this movie:

Come follow Me- for Primary “Share with the children some potential situations when they might be tempted to do something they know isn’t right. How can Heavenly Father help us choose the right? (See D&C 3:8)
Wish my boys were still little, they would love this.
The cars have situations written on them, that you can read to the child/ren, they can then sort out which cars go on which roads.

The Lord needs me to do His work.
Here is a very cute idea from Mitzi at comefollowmekid.com
Here is her lesson plan with this:
The Lord's Worker Hat-Talk about different jobs and what qualifies people to do those jobs (bakers need to know how to combine ingredients, mailmen need to know how to drive and where different envelopes and packages go, etc.). What do people need to know about and be able to do if their job is to be a grocery store clerk? Doctor? Garbage man? Etc. ...read D&C 3:3. One way to read this section is to imagine it as a job description for someone who wants to do the Lord's work. What are the qualifications? Why are these skills or characteristics necessary?
Give them a "The Lord's Worker" hat and tell them that the Lord has said He's doing a "marvelous" work right now and we get to be his working helpers! While putting the hat together, discuss specific things we might do to help the Lord with His work (be kind to others, stand up for what's right.etc.).
What if our job was to do the Lord's work? What kinds of things would we need to know? What would would we need to be able to do? What kind of people should we be?
Glue the "job description" stars onto the hat while discussing each.
Put the hat on and take turns sharing one way you can be a worker for the Lord at home, school, and with friends.
After, while wearing the hat you can watch this video and sing the song together:
Here is a printable of the Valiant song, if you are more hands on.

Help the children think of actions or draw pictures depicting the phrase "serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength." (D&C 4:2). Share an example of someone you know who serves God in this way.
If you scroll down and read the comments, Rebecca Murry says this:
"One thing I was thinking as I looked at the “heart might mind and strength” picture, is that it kind of goes along with the children and youth program. Heart could be social, might spiritual, mind intellectual, and strength physical. So I think I will relate this to the goals my kids have been thinking about for this year. How can your goals in each area help you serve God in that way? How can your intellectual goals help you serve God with your mind, etc. "
I love it! Rebecca is sort of a genius. I actually made a printable a while ago, it would be great for teaching this to older children, and setting their goals.

Hide a picture of Joseph smith somewhere in the room..read D&C 5:10, and invite the children to look for the picture to find out who the word "you is referring to. Bear your testimony that we have received God's word through Joseph Smith.
I read this, and my mind went strait to treasure hunt. My kids LOVE treasure hunts.
I really like how the primary manual has the children looking in scriptures to find the answers to questions too. So with some help, I put this together .
(BTW, if you just want to do something simple like the primary manual suggests, then just skip down and print the picture of Joseph Smith).
Really good for older kids, getting them into their scriptures, but also keeps them moving.
Wanted to show you how I wrote where the envelop is to be hidden. Just makes it easier to remember.
