Here are some fun FHE ideas from this month’s magazine. What other ideas can you come up with?

Friend Magazine, 2016/04 Apr

Kindness ABCs

Read “School-Bus Hero” (page 4) or “Love Spoken” (page 8). What does it mean to be kind? Write something for each letter of the alphabet on a poster. How can you follow Jesus’s example of being kind—at home, work, school, or play? Set some family goals and hang up the poster where everyone can see it.

Short and Sweet Bananas

It’s sweet to be kind! And often all it takes is something easy like a smile or nice words. Try out this sweet and easy treat. Be sure to get an adult’s help.

More FHE Ideas

Here are some more FHE ideas. Look for these pictures in the magazine to find the stories and articles they go with! (Find the page numbers below.)

Idea 1: Why do we follow the prophet? What do Apostles do? What’s a revelator? Find these answers and more in “Following Prophets and Apostles” and “Answers from an Apostle”!

Idea 2: Read “Pesos for Heavenly Father.” Use stickers or markers to decorate your own tithing jar! What does Heavenly Father promise us when we pay tithing? (Hint: read Malachi 3:10–12.)

Idea 3: Was anyone missing from your Primary on Sunday? You could write them a card to let them know you missed them! Use the card on “Happy Sabbath” or make your own.
