Children are natural missionaries, and can sometimes almost effortlessly invite a neighbor, friend, teacher, or coach to hear them speak or sing in church. The Primary sacrament meeting presentation is a golden opportunity!
These invitation ideas make it easy. You can give several to each child to give to someone they’d like to invite. The message of the invitation — making good choices — is a positive message for anyone. Click below to download the invitation, laid out four on a page for easy printing:

Guest author Jenn, who designed these invitations, gave an invitation to a playground mom who ended up being baptized! Read about it here.
These invitations are part of the chapter “Sacrament Meeting Presentation Tips and Tricks,” in the book that grew out of this blog, “Sunday Lessons and Activities for Kids.” Read how this blog became a book here.
If you’re planning your presentation outline, see Kim’s easy-to-follow way of putting it together at “Primary Sacrament Meeting Program outline – click, print and go!” Kim assigned each class one of the monthly themes, then interviewing each child by pulling them out of singing time to get a quote to go with the theme. The outline comes together really easily in the kids’ words that way.
Laura S. adds: “One year, my ward set up a small reception of cookies and drinks after the program to celebrate the Primary children’s hard work, and so that visitors feel welcome and have a chance to chat comfortably and ask questions. This gave visitors a chance to casually stick around and congratulate the child that they came to see, and not feel like they were obligated to go to class after, or make a hasty exit. They could stay longer and talk with others in a relaxed setting. The missionaries also joined the reception so they could talk with the investigators they brought, as well as meet other visitors who attended the program. Then everyone attended third hour classes as usual, and some hardy investigators stuck around.”
