Sharing Time Idea from the 2016 Outline
Encourage understanding: Cut a piece of paper into four sections and place them over a picture of the current prophet. On the back of each piece write a teaching of the prophet. (Refer to conference issues of the Ensign or Liahona to learn what the prophet has spoken about recently.) Invite a child to remove one piece of paper and act out the teaching. Ask the other children to guess what he or she is doing. Repeat with the other teachings. Show a copy of the Friend or Liahona and explain that we can read the prophet’s words today.
Encourage application: Have one child stand and complete this statement: “I will follow the living prophet by …” Invite another child to repeat the first child’s statement, adding another way to follow the prophet. Continue as time allows, encouraging the children to repeat as many of the other children’s ideas as possible
Ideas from Little LDS Ideas
For this week’s Sharing Time Idea I am going to share some previous ideas that I have shared. These would work great for this week’s idea with a few minor changes. So take a look and see what you think! Click the title of each idea to view the whole idea.
This idea uses the puzzle idea, but with some other fun game ideas that you could use. When I did this a few years ago, I think I did the bean bag toss idea (which would be great for Jr. Primary).
This idea is my treasure chest idea that I have shared several times. The idea is to find several different quotes/teachings from President Monson and then tie the keyword or phrase from the quote around a treasure chest. The children will read each quote and decide which keyword describes the quote that they read. By the end, each of the quotes will be cut off and they can see what is inside the treasure chest! It’s always a hit!
This is another great idea that uses quotes from President Monson, but for this idea they will be digging for ‘Conference Jewels’ (which are the quotes).
You can also take a look at my Sharing Time Index page and see what I have shared under the ‘Prophet’ category. 🙂
I hope some of the ideas that I shared today can help you prepare in some way for your Sharing Time. I would love to hear if you use an idea and how you change it to fit your Primary, so leave me a comment. 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!
