Family Night Fun

Here’s an idea for family home evening. What other ideas can you come up with?

Searching for Service

Read “Adam’s Big Green Cast” on page 4 with your family. Then do this activity.

  1. On slips of paper, write down examples of people who need help, like “Your neighbor is sick” or “Your friend is sad.”

  2. Have everyone leave while you hide the papers around the room.

  3. Call everyone back, and let the search begin! When someone finds a card, have them say how they would help that person.

  4. When all the papers are found, explain that when we look, we can find lots of ways to help!

  5. Now think of one way you can be kind, write it on a star, and send it to the Friend! Go to page 3 to learn more.

Small and Simple S’mores

You can serve in small and simple ways. Make simple s’mores with your family by squishing chocolate and a marshmallow between two graham crackers. (Microwave the marshmallow for a few seconds to get it soft.) That’s all it takes! Here are some other easy ideas:

  • Instead of graham crackers, use pretzels or snack crackers.

  • Add fruit, nut butter, or caramel.

  • Make a s’mores snack mix with mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and square-shaped cereal.

  • Toss popcorn with melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, and mini marshmallows. Drizzle with melted chocolate.

More Ideas

  • Start your family history binder! (See page 18.)

  • Do the first challenge together from the Old Testament Card (page 19).
