When Friends Go …

  • It’s hard when a friend moves away, but it doesn’t have to be goodbye forever. You can still talk by email, phone, or video calls. You can even be pen pals!

  • Learn something cool about your friend’s new home and look it up on a map. Show them you care.

  • Sometimes friends just move on to different friends or interests. Some friends come and go.

  • Remember that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love you.

When Friends Come …

  • You might find friends in surprising places. Your siblings or cousins can be your friends. So can kids from your Primary class!

  • Find someone who seems lonely and do something nice for them. Help everyone feel included!

  • It can be scary to make a bunch of friends at once. Start by inviting one person to do something fun. Maybe their friends will become your friends too.

Quiz Time!

Take this quiz with a new friend, but hide your answers! Then try to guess what the other person wrote.

  • What is your favorite game?

  • How many siblings do you have?

  • If you could pick any animal for a pet, what would it be?

  • What is your favorite movie?

  • What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

  • What is your favorite color?
