Ideas for Teaching Children

The Lord cares for His people.

  • How can you share the story of the olive trees in a way that your children can understand? One way is to take a walk outside to look at a tree and briefly review the main points of the story. What did the Lord of the vineyard do for His trees? How can we be like workers in the story and help others feel the Savior’s love?


Yes! Go outside..if it's not raining(:

Here is an interactive activity to teach about the olive tree. This was from 4 years ago, I think we are to teach more about us (not just missionaries) laboring to help in the vineyard.

I used an exacto knife and a cutting board.

  • Jacob shared the story of the olive trees to invite his people to come unto Christ. It can do the same for your children. Perhaps you could summarize the story with verses such as Jacob 5:3–4, 28–29, 47, and 70–72 (see also “Old Testament Olive Vineyard” [video], Gospel Library). You or your children could then read Jacob 5:11, 41, 47, and 72, looking for things that show how much the Lord of the vineyard (Jesus Christ) cared about the trees. What does the Savior do to show that He cares about us? This is the movie from this weeks lesson, it just shows up black for the first couple of seconds.

This book is from Mitzi @ Comefollowmekid.com you may recognize some of the art, from me. Great for anyone who doesn't own a printer.








Heavenly Father loves me and will forgive me as I repent.

  • Jacob 6:4–5 has an important message for us when we make wrong choices. Maybe you could help your children find it. Which words in these verses give us hope in God’s redeeming love? Elder Allen D. Haynie’s story about getting dirty in a mud pit, in his message “Remembering in Whom We Have Trusted” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2015, 121–22), could help. What do this story and Jacob 6:4–5 teach us about what we need to do to be saved in the kingdom of God?

Elder Allen D. Haynie's story is very child friendly. I've highlighted the parts that you can sum up in your own words for smaller children. I've also drew some art to help tell the story. If you would like to get younger children involved more you can pass out the pictures and have them place it when they hear about it in the story. If I was teaching older children I would assign a child in my class to read and teach the story, bearing their personal testimony and experience.












If you have children that need to move, here is a 4 corners game. It will always go better if you practice the first time saying the words and seeing if the students can find the pictures and stand under them, before you read the scriptures.




I can stand up for what I know is true.

  • How can you inspire your children to stand for truth like Jacob did? Your children could watch the video “Chapter 10: Jacob and Sherem” (Gospel Library) and act out the interaction between Jacob and Sherem, using Jacob 7:1–23 as a guide.


Here are some masks you can use as props for acting :





  • How did Jacob stand for what he knew was right? Invite your children to share experiences when they stood for the right, or share your own. Perhaps they could also sing a song that expresses courage like Jacob’s, such as “Stand for the Right,” Children’s Songbook, 159.

Thank you for the immense amount of work you have put into these lessons and activities. AND for making them accessible for everyone. This is what that Savior meant when he asked us to dedicate our time, means, and talents to the building of the kingdom of God. Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us, and in turn, with all those we teach with these materials. ❤️

I’ve been using your ideas for years now and I think it’s high time I thanked you for all of your hard work and excellent printables. I honestly don’t know how I’d plan a good lesson without you. Thank you so much for your help and generosity in sharing these wonderful ideas.
