(Friend December 2003, suggestion # 4)
To help the children review the Articles of Faith, which tell some of the beliefs that they can share with others, make a simple paper doll to represent someone interested in learning about the Church.
Write numbers 1–13 on separate pieces of paper to indicate numbers of the Articles of Faith.
Divide the children into 13 groups, and have each group choose a paper (smaller Primaries may need to give the groups more than one paper).
Give the children crayons and square-shaped papers to decorate with information about their chosen article of faith—e.g., key words, pictures that relate to the principle expressed, the number of the article, song titles that reflect the principles of the article.
Place the completed squares in a container.
Invite someone to share an experience in which they repeated an article of faith to help another person understand more about the Church, or tell the experience Sister Michaelene P. Grassli had of sharing articles of faith with a taxi driver (Friend, Jan. 1995, IFC).
Affix the paper doll to a chair at the front of the room so it looks like a person sitting there.
Discuss giving others one special gift, the joy of the gospel.
Have the children take turns choosing a square from the container.
If the child can remember the chosen article of faith, have him or her say the article of faith and place the square on the doll's lap. (For younger children, have his or her entire group help by saying the article together.)
If the child is unable to remember the article, have his or her group or a leader help.
Sing songs listed on the square or others that help reinforce that article.
Invite the children to share their favorite articles of faith with their families.
