Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “A Lesson in Reverence” (pages 2–3) and discuss the importance of reverence. How can you help make Primary a more reverent place? Write down some suggestions in the spaces provided on page 2. You could also brainstorm ways family members could help to have a more reverent spirit in your home.

  2. Make Scripture Cookies (page 13) as a family. You could divide into two teams. Team 1 could work together to fill in all of the blanks for the recipe. Team 2 could gather and measure each ingredient as it is found. Then follow the cooking instructions and discuss what you learned from the scriptures while the cookies bake.

  3. Read “Visiting the Draper Utah Temple” (pages 18–19). Cut several small circles or squares out of paper to divide among family members. Lay a world map on the floor and take turns placing a paper marker wherever you think a temple is. Which temple is closest to your home? You can find temple locations at Click on Family History and Temples and then Temples around the World.

  4. Read the accounts on pages 30–31 of children trying to be like Jesus. How have the members of your family tried to follow the example of the Savior? Share your experiences with one another. You could write them in your journal or send them to the Friend.
