Before I share my 3rd week Sharing Time idea I wanted to let you know that we have a very busy week this week here on Little LDS Ideas.
I’m posting my Sharing Time Idea for week 3
there is going to be a Guest Post!!
Later this week I will be posting:
Our finished bulletin board.
A really cute idea for memorizing Articles of Faith.
Our Giveaway Winner, yah!! (Friday)
Hopefully the Sharing Time idea for the 4th week.
So if you receive emails from Little LDS Ideas you’ll be receiving quite a few this week, sorry. But read them, they’ll be great!
I also have a question I’d like to ask all of you. A few months ago I had someone leave a comment asking if I had a Facebook page for Little LDS Ideas. I don’t, but I’ve been thinking about that alot.
I was wondering if you would like it if I were to start a Little LDS Facebook account. Would it be more convenient for you? Do you check facebook more often than blogs? I would still keep my blog and update regularly with a facebook page on the side.
Just a question I thought I’d ask.
So let me know what you think and if you would like that.
Alright, now for my Sharing Time Idea.
The words of Christ will tell us all things we should do.
Here is what is in the Primary Sharing Time Outline:
ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (seeing an object lesson): Blindfold a child. Have another child hold a picture of Jesus Christ somewhere in the Primary room. Have the blindfolded child try to locate the picture without any help. Repeat the activity, but this time ask two children to hold up a pole, rope, or string representing the iron rod that leads from the blindfolded child to the picture of Christ. Have the child follow the rope to the picture. Ask, “How is holding on to the rope like like reading the scriptures?” (See 1 Nephi 15:23-25).
Teach the children the chorus to “The Iron Rod” (Hymns, no. 274). Share a few examples from your life when the scriptures have taught you what you should do. Explain how following the teachings in the scriptures has helped you come closer to the Savior.
For this Sharing Time I have 2 different ideas that you could use. It’s a really quick explanation, so I hope they both make sense. 🙂
My first idea is a scripture maze. You will need to create a large maze on a poster-board. In each intersection will be a scripture reference. The children will read the scripture references and then be asked a question. They will be given 2 answers. One answer (the correct one) will lead them in the right direction and the other answer (the wrong one) will lead them in the wrong direction.
The children will have to read the scriptures and listen to what they say to reach the end of the maze.
For the Second Idea I share a Scripture Hunt. It is just like a scavenger hunt, but you use the scriptures. Each clue has a scenario on it with a scripture reference. The children will have to read the scripture to figure out the answer the question. If answered correctly they will receive their next clue.
At the end you could have a treasure chest with a set of scriptures and a picture of Christ.
You could also have some little treats in the treasure chest.
You could get some Twizzlers and make a little note that says something about ‘Holding to the Rod. The words of Christ will tell us all things we should do.’
Or you could make those really cute little chocolate scriptures from Sugardoodle found Here
Or fill the box/treasure chest with some Hershey’s Treasures (chocolates).
So there you go my idea for the 3rd week of January 2011. I hope you like it. If you have any questions just leave a comment or send me an email.
