I mentioned in a previous post that I bought a laminator and have been making family home evening packets. A lot of mine come from Pinterest, but this week I decided that we needed to learn about obedience (after Stormy ran into a parking lot and continued running even after I told him to stop) and what I found on the interwebs just weren’t cutting it for my two year old. So I decided to gather things from different sources and compile my very own.
Now, we have a board we’ll use later when the kids are older to make assignments for family home evening (Christmas gift from my SIL – I’ll post a picture at some point), but for now, it’s all on mom and dad, so at least for now things should go together nicely.
We started with a prayer.
Then we sang the first verse of “Nephi’s Courage” from the Children’s Songbook. Fun fact – I didn’t know that was the title until I had to Google it. I’ve always just called it “I will go, I will do.”
Then we had a story/lesson David’s Lesson, which I pulled off the LDS.org website from the Friend. (I printed and laminated this for my folder)
For our activity we played Obedience Games that I found on a homeschooling website. We did “Mother says” first but I think we’ll play one of these games once a day until my child stops doing suicide missions into the library parking lot.
We closed with a prayer and then it was time for treats. Stormy and I made Rice Krispies Treats (there’s a video in that link too in case you’ve never made these before…not that I’m judging)
