Here are some activity ideas for toddlers and young children that go along with each week’s reading.

For 2 Nephi 1–5

Read 2 Nephi 2:6 together and help your little ones say, “Jesus Christ saved me.” Watch a sing-along video about the Savior at children.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Then color or draw a picture of Jesus together (see page FJ7 in the April or May 2019 Friend) and hang it somewhere you’ll see it this week.

For 2 Nephi 6–10

Read 2 Nephi 10:23 together and help your little ones say, “I can make good choices.” Flip through the Friend and help your children smile and give a thumbs up—or whatever gesture means “good job” in your culture—whenever you find a picture of someone making a good decision.

For 2 Nephi 11–25

Read 2 Nephi 12:2 and help your little ones say, “The temple is the house of the Lord.” Then use items around your house to build a model temple. You could look at pictures of different temples in the photo gallery at temples.ChurchofJesusChrist.org.

For 2 Nephi 26–30

Read 2 Nephi 28:2 and help your little ones say, “We love the Book of Mormon!” Help your children act out some Book of Mormon stories. (For example, page 25 has a simple script you could use.) Or watch a video at BookofMormonVideos.org.
