Watchmen on the Tower

Family Home Evening Lesson

(This lesson based on one from Chocolate on my Cranium )

I realise this lesson may be a little late as conference has been (we have it a week later in Australia) but I plan to use it as an afterward reminder and play a short conference talk online to go with it)

Opening Song: "Follow the Prophet" Children's Songbook # 110

Opening Prayer: Child

Lesson: Mommy
Show a picture of King Benjamin on the tower or towers from Cocoa's lesson or any picture of towers.

What are these? What are towers used for? (to see far, see danger etc)

Heavenly Father has given us Watchmen on Towers to help us. They are the prophet and 12 Apostles. Just like up on a tower they have a better view of dangers and what lies ahead. They help us to be prepared and ready.

With help from us we stuck the pictures of the Apostles to the tower as found in the lesson at Chocolate on my Cranium

We got out our 'Jenga' game and used the blocks to build various towers. Any blocks or building materials could be used.

or you could

Build a tower out of marshmallows and toothpicks


Play a segment from conference for them to watch while eating their treat

Closing Song: Sixth Article of Faith Children's Songbook #126

Closing Prayer: Daddy


Chocolate squares (bricks from a tower) or similar shaped foods

*With permission from Cocoa from Chocolate on my Cranium I will feature some her FHE lessons in the coming weeks that I have paraphrased for use with younger children. Check out her lessons - they are great! Chocolate on my Cranium FHE Lessons
