Joseph Smith and The Articles of Faith
(CSMP 2005 Dec. suggestion # 1)

Explain that Joseph Smith wrote the Articles of Faith.

Create a matching game by writing the numbers 1 through 13 twice on 26 pieces of paper (one number on each paper).
Place the papers on a game board so the
numbers can’t be seen.
Divide the children into groups.
One at a time, have a child from each group choose two
papers to turn over. If the numbers match, have that group say that article of faith.
Then remove those two
papers from the game board.
Continue until all the
papers are removed.

Then sing the third verse of “On a Golden Springtime” (CS, 88).
