FHE lesson box
(shared by Rebecca Smith)
For our last Activity Days meeting, we made a "Family
Home Evening lesson/flannel board in a box" which can be added to.
I went to the cake decorating aisle at Joann's and bought
each girl a 10X10 cake box, for .99 each. (We have 10 girls in our group) I
stopped by Walmart to buy 2 yards of light blue felt by
the yard ($3.77 a yard) and also prepared some flannel board pictures to
copy at the church library before the meeting of the 'First Vision', as well
as the lesson to go with it. Pre-colate the lesson & pages for each girl.
After opening prayer & such, we told the girls we were
making a FHE in a box, & divided the girls into two groups.
We had two stations, the table and chairs was the station
for coloring, & cutting figures out.
Another station we had on the floor where with the
leader's help, cut out a 10X10 square to glue on the top of the cake box. The
girls also cut flannel backing for their lesson cut outs. The girls switched
& when all was done, the pieces and lessons went into the box!
They now knew how to cut & attach backing to peices & can
add their own lessons to their box, keeping the peices & lesson in ziploc
Not only that, but the felt topped box serves as a
