Add one note at a time until the children guess correctly.
Sing the song together and then discuss what the song teaches about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ’s love for us. List the children’s ideas on the board.
Repeat with each song. Consider using the following songs:
Give each child a piece of paper and have them draw one way they know that
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love them. You may want to refer the children
to the ideas you listed on the board in the activity above.
Tape the pictures together, and display them in a roller box (see TNGC, 178–79) or unroll them as you would a scroll. As the children watch, have the pianist play one of the songs listed above.
Write some examples of ways that Heavenly Father shows His love for us and
ways we show our love for Him on separate pieces of paper.
Put the pieces of paper in a container, and have a child pull them out one at a time. Read each one aloud.
If it is something that shows Heavenly Father’s love for us, have the children stretch one arm upward. If it shows our love for Heavenly Father, have them put their hands over their heart.
