Hi friends! I know it’s been awhile since I started posting my toddler FHE lessons. I wanted to get a good feel to see if people were actually using them and after a bunch of requests to keep posting them, here we are! To make them easier to find, just click the dropdown on my “family” tab and there will be a section just for these lessons. I hope that helps!
*And if you have no idea what FHE or Family Home Evening is, you can read more about it HERE)
Our family is so far from perfect, but something that helps our home feel happy is by always having family night every Monday. I made these lessons using primary songs and followed the primary manual. They are as simple as can be, which for this stage in our lives has been perfect.
Lesson #3: Families Can be Together Forever
Opening Song: Families Can be Together Forever (music: HERE)
Scripture: (Proclamation to the World) The Family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Lesson: Ask each child to go around in a circle saying everyone’s names and their favorite thing about them. Talk about why families are special to us and why we need to love our families. (When our family did this we went around in a circle saying things that we loved about each other). Explain how our families can be together forever.
Activity: Go outside and play together as a family OR draw a picture of the whole family.
Treat: Banana splits with M&M’s on top to represent each person in their family.
I have LOVED seeing the pics you’ve sent me from your family nights! If you post them tag #mamahoodFHE so I can see! Love you all!
