"Plan of Salvation"
(Friend March 2003, suggestion # 3)

Review the stages of our lives in the plan of salvation with the children.

Use simple costumes to have additional children represent:

Place this family in front of the Earth Life sign.
Choose another child to stand in front of the Premortal Life sign.

Sing "I Lived in Heaven" (p. 4).

Discuss the blessings of coming to an earthly family.
Have the child move from Premortal Life to the family in front of Earth Life.
Have the mother place a baby blanket around the child to show the love that a family provides.

Sing "A Happy Family" (p. 198).

Explain that part of the plan is to leave earth life.
Move the grandparent from Earth Life to Spirit World and talk of the sadness the family feels because the grandparent is no longer with them, but of the peace they feel in knowing that his or her spirit lives on.

Sing "Families Can Be Together Forever" (p. 188).

Discuss the role the Savior plays in the plan of salvation.
Have a child hold a picture of Jesus Christ in front of the Resurrection sign.

Sing an Easter song.

Discuss how each child can qualify for the celestial kingdom as he or she chooses the right.

Sing v. 4 of "I Am a Child of God" (pp. 2–3).

Bear testimony of your love and appreciation for the Savior.
