(Friend Jan 2004, suggestion # 5)
Teach the children that their bodies are temples, and sing "The Lord Gave Me a Temple" (p. 153).
Learning and living My Gospel Standards will help them care for their body inside and out.
Choose an object or picture to represent each of the three standards, i.e.
Write one of the standards on the board.
Choose one child to go out of the room and one to hide the object.
Have the child return and find the object by having the children repeat the standard over and over.
As the child gets closer to the object, the children recite it more loudly.
When the child is far away from the object, the children recite it more softly.
When the child has found the object, have him or her name one way we can live this standard.
Cover the standard and play again.
Post the next standard and repeat.
For older children, you might do two standards at a time.
Sing "Keep the Commandments" (pp. 146–47) and pass the three objects.
When the music stops, children name the gospel standard that goes with their object and what they can do to live it.
Encourage the children to recite the standards they have learned to a family member.
