Family Home Evening: The Beatitudes

After quizzing the kiddos what they wanted to learn about for Family Home Evening, my husband chose to teach about the Beatitudes.  I think the kiddo that piped up was thinking of President Hinkley’s Be’s, but that’s OK.  There’s a great article from the 80’s that helped with the lesson.  Someone mentioned the same story about Hugh B. Brown in Sunday School today.  I guess I need to listen and let the Lord prune me to what He wants me to be, instead of being what I think is best.  This article helped us explain what the different qualities  in the Beatitudes mean in a way the children could understand.

We tried a fun new activity, Sign Language Charades.  I don’t know where we got this old card game.  Whoever is “it”  picks a card and does the sign shown, everyone else guesses what the sign means.  If no one guesses correctly, than “it” acts out the word charades style.  I love games that are fun and you can actually learn something!

We also tried a new treat, Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies.  These tasted good and were fun to make since I got so much help with them.
