Scripture of the Week: Family Proclamation

"The family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children."
The Family: A Proclamation to the World

For Family Home Evening tonight we talked about our family tree and ways that we can help our family to be strong. I used this file on Sugardoodle for our activity, which had two parts. I opened the file in Publisher and made three copies of the page. On one of the pages I removed all of the words from the fruit. On another page I removed the words from the fruit and instead added the names of our immediate family members and grandparents names. The other two pages I kept the same. After printing the four pages I cut out the fruit names and one set of the fruit activities, leaving me with two sheets of papers with trees on them. For our FHE we glued our family members onto the blank tree, and then played a matching game to glue the family strengthening activities on the other tree. It was an activity that kept little hands busy while we talked, and it went over well.

Thanks for the ideas. I get to help do a Primary talk on this subject next Sunday, so I was just starting to look for ideas!
