Chapter 21: The Amlicites
Again, these Nephites were blessed because of their righteousness. If you didn't get to use any of last week's suggestions, draw from that list. This week's list is pretty lame because I was really stumped with what I should focus on.
The themes that I came up with for this particular story were: voting, democracy, being blessed for being righteous, marking ourselves (tattoos, etc) is wrong.
So along with last week's suggestions here are a few more that you may think your toddler will enjoy.
- Vote for which doll/teddy bear/stuffed toy will be president of the room. If you really wanted to get into it, you could make your own ballot box and have the toys debate why each one is better than the other.
- Make newspaper swords (rolled up newpaper) and re-enact Alma and Amlici's fight.
- Explain that our body's are gifts from Heavenly Father and that we should treat them carefully (I'm not sure if you want to go into the whole tattoo thing, but if you think your child is ready, go for it).
- Sing "the Lord Gave Me a Temple" (Children's Songbook page 153)
Good luck with that eclectic list!
