Friend Magazine, Global 2021/01 Jan

For Doctrine and Covenants 1: Help your little ones say, “Joseph Smith was a prophet.” Then go to children.ChurchofJesusChrist.org and click on “Music” to find a song to sing about Joseph Smith.

For Joseph Smith—History 1:1–26: Help your little ones say, “Heavenly Father hears my prayers.” Then use this poem to teach your children how to pray: “I close my eyes. I bow my head. I fold my arms while the prayer is said.”

For Doctrine and Covenants 2, Joseph Smith—History 1:27–65: Help your little ones say, “I love my family.” Hold up a family photo and help your child point to each person and say their name.

For Doctrine and Covenants 3–5: Help your little ones say, “I can follow God.” Play a game of follow-the-leader and give your child instructions, one at a time. Clap together when your child gets it right.

For Doctrine and Covenants 6–9: Help your little ones say, “I can do good.” Then help them make a card or treat to bring to a neighbor, or find another fun way to serve.
