  • Hide a penny on the floor and have your children search for it with a broom and dustpan.

  • Play Hot and Cold with a lost sheep and the song Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd. One child leaves while the rest of you hide a sheep. Bring the child back in and adjust the volume of the song to be louder the closer he gets to finding the sheep.

  • Pretend to be sheep on all fours, with one shepherd. While the shepherd turns his back, one of the sheep should go hide and "baaa" until she is found by the shepherd.

  • Draw faces on each of your child's ten fingernails or print these 10 lepers finger puppets from The Red Crystal. Put band-aids on both hands. Then hold up a picture of Christ so the fingers can be healed. Remove the band-aids and have your child hold up one finger to says "thank you" to Jesus.

  • Write each child's name vertically down a piece of paper. Help them think of something for which they are grateful that starts with each letter from their name. Hang the papers as a reminder for prayer. (Idea from Simply Family Home Evening)


Sunday

  • I would seriously love to hear what your family does on Sunday to make the Sabbath a delight. We still haven't gotten into a groove because we are so exhausted after church that we pretty much veg until the kids fall asleep for a late nap, at which point my husband phones his family and I. . . think about all the delightful things I would do if I had energy. Help! (I love love love my calling as Primary Music Leader, but after the adrenaline rush of the Primary Circus comes a coma-inducing crash. Every single week.)
