So, I am still working on teaching my 2 and almost 4-year-old more consistently about the gospel, and tonight I really felt the need to make sure they recognize who our church leaders are. And guess what? I kind of came up with my own lesson that was super easy and my kids were engaged the whole time! So, here is what we did.
Sing We Thank Thee Oh God For a Prophet (hymn 19)
Show Pictures of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve. Although don't use the picture I used above, it's not updated. I just went over the First Presidency because they're pretty young and were not paying very close attention so we had to keep it short and sweet. But what we did was try to teach this song that you can get on Sugardoodle.net. Although now that I'm looking I can't find it. But you sing the last names of the Prophet and Apostles in order, to the tune of 10 little Indians. It goes like
Monson, Eyring, Uchtdorf, Packer
Perry, Nelson, Oakes, and Ballard
Scott, Hales, Holland, Bednar, Cook
Christofferson and Anderson.
And that was all we did because it was 10 PM and we needed to go to bed. But I really liked it! And I love the zero preparation aspect of it as well. Hopefully it'll give you some ideas flowing for your next Family Night!
