Come, Follow Me for Little Ones

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

Friend Magazine, 2020/04 Apr

For Easter

Read Alma 7:12 together and help your little ones say, “Jesus loves me and knows how to help me.” You could have a Christ-centered Easter-egg hunt using the ideas and scriptures on pages 38–39.

For Mosiah 1–3

Read Mosiah 2:17 together. Then help your little ones take turns standing on a chair, like King Benjamin on the tower. While on the chair, help them repeat a simple line about service, like “God is happy when I help others” or, “By serving others I’m serving God.”

For Mosiah 4–6

Read Mosiah 4:26 together and help your little ones say, “I can help those in need.” This would be a great time to do a family service project. For example, young children could decorate paper bags and help fill them with snacks or other items to comfort people who seem sad or lonely.

For Mosiah 7–10

Read Mosiah 7:33 together and help your little ones say, “God will help me be strong.” Set out objects of different weights and have your children try to lift each one. Then show them that with your help, they can lift so much more! Testify that God will help us be strong enough to do hard things when we trust Him.
