Family Fun Time

You can use these ideas to have fun learning with your family!

Friend Magazine, 2014/01 Jan

Make a Plan!

Pull out the scripture chart and references on pages 24–26. Put them where everyone can see them.

Decide what time your family will read the scriptures each day.

“Liken” Charades

Read “Just Like the Scriptures!” on pages 4–5. Now practice likening the scriptures to yourself!

Split into two groups. Group 1 acts out a scripture story while Group 2 guesses which story it is. Then Group 2 acts out a modern-day example of a story for Group 1 to guess.

Use these scripture stories, or choose your own!

1 Nephi 16:10, 26–30

Alma 23:16–17; 24:17–19

1 Samuel 17:23–24, 45, 48–50

Daniel 6:7, 11, 16–23
