(Friend Nov 2003, suggestion # 3)
For younger children
Make picture necklaces to remind the children of principles taught during general conference.
Cut 4–5 long pieces of string or
yarn, and tie the ends of each string together to form necklaces.
Using a stapler or tape, attach a small picture of an item representing the content of a talk to each string necklace.
a tithing envelope for a talk on tithing,
a CTR shield for a talk on choosing the right,
a child praying for a talk about prayer,
shoes for a talk about walking in faith and following the Savior.
Place the necklaces under selected chairs before Primary.
Ask the children who find necklaces
under their chairs to put them on and come to the front of the room.
For each picture, review the name of the General Authority who gave the talk and the subject the picture represents.
Give the children case studies relating to their pictures and ask them to act out the answer ~ e.g.,
act out a job or chore you could do to earn money, then show how you pay tithing on that money;
act out watching television when a movie comes on that uses words that make you feel uncomfortable, then show what you would do;
name three times you could pray, then show what you look like when you say your prayers;
act out seeing your father beginning to rake leaves while you are walking to a friend's house to play, then show what you might do.
As each child demonstrates an action, have the rest of the Primary do the same action.
Sing a song to reinforce the principle ~ e.g.,
Glad to Pay a Tithing" (p. 150),
"Choose the Right Way" (pp. 160–61),
"Children All Over the World" (pp. 16–17),
"Love One Another" (p. 136).
Bear testimony that the children will be blessed as they remember the words of the prophet and other General Authorities and follow their counsel.
Sing the chorus of "Follow the Prophet" (pp. 110–11).
