Opening Song: “My Country” (Children’s Song Book # 224)
Opening Prayer: Child
(I am actually using the entire “Captain Moroni and the Title of Liberty” article for this lesson. Click on the link to use for your lesson. It is perfect and condenses the story better than I ever could with pictures and all.)
Talk about how the Title of Liberty it is a lot like our Flag. If we live the way were are suppose to and follow what the Lord has asked we can be blessed by the wonderful country that we live in.
You can teach your children about respecting the Flag and put “The Pledge of Allegiance” up in your home for your family to see and practice and learn.
***If you don't live in the U.S. and you aren't celebrating the 4th of July this week then instead you could as a family make your own "Title of Liberty" that you could display in your home. Talk about the things that are imprortant to your family and write a "(use your last name)'s Title of Liberty" up on a torn pice of cloth or an old t-shrit or just on a large pice of paper.***
Talk about the 4th of July and the liberty’s that we have in this country and what it means to you and your family.
Activity: Choose any of these fun 4th of July activities from Enchanted Learning.
Closing Song: “My Flag, My Flag” (Children’s Song Book # 225)
Closing Prayer: Daddy
Treat: Make red, white, and blue parfaits by layering blueberries, strawberries, and whip cream in a clear cup or by using red and blue jello with whip cream.
