When we lived in Hawaii, I was the Activity Day leader. I LOVED that calling!

One of the activities that we did was about the Sacrament.


In the Faith in God booklet for girls, under “Learning and Living the Gospel,” there is an activity about the Sacrament. Here’s what it says:

“Explain how taking the sacrament helps you renew your baptismal covenant. In a family home evening, teach others about things we can do to remain faithful.”

As I saw the idea I had an idea of having the girls make bread, but I wanted to make bread for a reason. I thought it would be a great experience if the girls made bread to use for the Sacrament that Sunday.

The day of our activity, I explained to the girls what we would be doing. They squealed with excitement. They couldn’t believe that THEY were going to make the sacrament bread.

Before we made our bread, I invited the sister missionaries to join us at our meeting to discuss the sacrament with all the girls. They discussed how taking the sacrament helps you renew your baptismal covenants.

After their discussion and questions we got busy making our bread. I gave each girl an ingredient/task to do. We mixed it all up and then let it rise. I baked it later that evening after it had risen.

The next Sunday the girls were so excited that their bread was the sacrament bread.

Would your Activity Day girls enjoy this activity? Here are some other great ideas that you could use for your own Sacrament Bread activity.


The girls really enjoyed having the sister missionaries come and join us. It was something new and different. S,o if you have sister missionaries in your ward see if they’d like to come and join you. It doesn’t have to be a long discussion, just a few minutes.

After the discussion have the girls help mix up the bread.

While the bread is rising you could discuss things they could do during the sacrament.

Have the girls share ideas of things they could do or think of during the Sacrament. You could even make small Sacrament Quiet Books.  Get small photo albums and have the girls fill them with pictures of Jesus Christ.

There is a great article on the sacrament in this month’s Friend magazine. There’s a bookmark that you could print out and have the girls cut, and then have them keep it in their scriptures. Here’s what it looks like, and Click HERE to read the article.


There’s also a “Family Talk’ idea that the girls could use for a FHE lesson for their family.

After you have done some or all of these activities you can check on your bread and shape it into loaves. Tell the girls that you’ll cook the bread once it has risen again (if needed), and bring it to church on Sunday.

FYI: Be sure to ask the person in charge of bringing the sacrament bread each Sunday, and let them know that the Activity Day girls would like to bring bread that they have made.

I hope you like my Activity Day Sacrament lesson idea, and use it for your Activity Day group. I know they will love it!

{This would also be a great YW idea that you could possibly use for Personal Progress. Just an idea. 🙂 }

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

    I am currently an Activity Day Leader. Last year we made homemade bread as a early morning activity on a Saturday morning. The following day we were passed the bread that we had made. We, also, made an extra loaf so that the priesthood would consider eating the gifted loaf of bread.
