What is Activity Days?

For experienced Activity Day leaders, this is a great reminder and for new Activity Day leaders, this is great information! Took this straight from the church website

“Creative, innovative … activities can be stimulating and fun, but … every lesson, every meeting, and every activity should be focused on bringing these little ones to Christ.” —M. Russell Ballard

What might I consider in planning activities?

  • Prayerfully consider the individual needs and interests of the children.
  • Counsel with the Primary presidency, families, and children.
  • Ensure that activities accomplish gospel-centered purposes.

Have you thought about …

  • What can help children and their families accomplish the Faith in God requirements?
  • How can I get to know each of the children?
  • How can the activities strengthen each child’s faith in Jesus Christ?
  • How can the activities help the children understand and keep their baptismal covenant?
  • What can I do to help the children prepare to go to the temple?
  • How can I help the children gain a testimony of the power of the priesthood in their life?
