(I have combined this activity of more than just a few ideas from the internet....)
Let your bishop dress in white clothes. The bishop greets the children at the door.
Make the children take off their shoes before entering the Primary room. Decorate the room in white and have pictures of temples on the walls.
Tell the children, that in the temple you have to wear slippers (have some for them, if possible)
Show: Family Home Evening Video Supplement #2, #15. (Temples Are for
Eternal Covenants). The description says that this is a 6 minute video,
showing interiors of
many temples with reverent music; excellent and very suitable for children.
Learning the Song "The Lord Gave Me a Temple" (CS)
Let the following people talk about why the Temple is important to them:
2. Someone who was sealed to their parents and remembers the experience
3. An Elder getting his endowments
4. A newly married couple
Let each class pick a picture of a Temple. The older children can build a temple out of sugar cubes. The younger children can make marshmallow temples.
Marshmallow Temples (idea shared by Karen Brent):
The smaller children each received a baggy with a handful of marshmallow and about 8 toothpicks inside. We gave them foam plates to build on. The basic building block is a toothpick with a marshmallow in the middle and one on each side. Use your creativity from there. Even some sunbeams were able to do this without much help.
Marshmallow temple (idea shared by Karen Brent):
Here is a diagram of a "wall" for a marshmallow temple that uses 6 toothpicks and 9 marshmallows. The middle horizontal toothpick adds stability.
