Spiritual Prep: More FHE In A Jar!

Here are three more lessons to add to your FHE In A Jar. Again, these are for nursery/pre-school age children and are kept very short, sweet, and to the point to accommodate their attention spans (or lack thereof). 🙂  Just click on each of the three links below and either save them to your computer or print them out. Add them to your FHE jar (and add the activities to your images folder) and you’re ready for more Family Night Fun! Hope you enjoy!

  1. FHE in a Jar- lessons
  2. Sabbath Day Matching Game
  3. I Can Work- Coloring Page

{For instructions, information, as well as more lessons for FHE In A Jar, click HERE for the original posting.}

And in case you want some refresher tips for having a successful Family Night with small children, here are some suggestions:

  • Have a picture of Jesus Christ easily accessible so you can grab it for Family Night and the children can look at Him as you talk about the things He teaches.
  • Follow a routine each week so that your children can become familiar with the family night process.
  • Use a gathering activity for the lesson. In our home, we sing the following song (to the tune of “If you’re happy and you know it”) when it’s time for the lesson: “If you’re ready for the lesson come sit down (clap, clap), If you’re ready for the lesson come sit down (clap, clap), If you’re ready for the lesson it will surely be a blessin’, If you’re ready for the lesson come sit down (clap, clap).” (And we all gather in a circle on the floor while we sing.)
  • Involve the children as much as possible. Try to have a lot of interaction, ask a lot of questions, and have them repeat important parts.
  • Share your testimony with your children each week to help them feel the Spirit.
  • Keep it short and sweet. Small children have small attention spans and it will only frustrate you and them if you try to give a big, elaborate lesson.

Good luck and best wishes!

    Hi Debbie!

    I found your website through my sister-in-law, Annie’s blog (I am married to Annie’s brother, Nathan). I just wanted to say that I love all of your ideas for food storage and preparedness! Thank you for sharing all this great information! Also, I’m planning a Relief Society meeting for my ward on Family Home Evening, so I really appreciated your last post! Thanks again!!

      Hi Andrea! Glad you like it. 🙂 It’s been a BIG help for our family, and I hope it will be of help to you too! I’m sorry you’re having trouble getting the files though! I’ll go ahead and email them to you. Hopefully it’s just a fluke and not a problem with the file! Anyway, enjoy! 🙂

    I love this! I have two older boys and two younger boys so these will be perfect for the older boys to use when it’s their turn to teach FHE. Thanks so much for sharing!
