Family Home Evening Lesson
Opening Song "Jesus said Love Everyone" Childrens Songbook #61
Opening Prayer: Child
We started our lesson by rolling out a big sheet of paper with the word LOVE written in big letters in the middle. We asked 'who should we show love to?' The children wrote and drew their answers all around the piece of paper.
Answers included :
Family, Mum and Dad, Sisters, Neighbours, Heavenly Father, Jesus, Cousins, Pets, Best friends, School Teachers, Primary Teachers, etc
We then made some tiny valentines/love notes on bits of card and pegged them to some string. We hung it on our mantle and I said any time you do some service or something kind this week, add another heart/note onto our string.
