(CSMP 2005 November, suggestion # 2)
To teach mission preparation, make a game board with a path divided into many squares of six different colors.
Place a picture that represents sharing the gospel at the
end of the path.
Prepare a cube with six colored faces that match the colors on the game board.
On each face of the cube, write one of the following:
Tell a personal story of obedience.
Express gratitude for your blessings.
Recite an article of faith.
Repeat one of “My Gospel Standards.”
Sing a song from “The Gospel” section of the Children’s Songbook.
Tell one thing you will do to be a missionary now.
Choose children to roll the cube and do what it says in order to move a game piece ahead to corresponding colored squares. Play the game for a set period of time and see how far you can go before the clock runs out.
Reinforce the need to prepare now for missionary service.
