Word of Wisdom- sharing time lesson and family night idea

A few years ago my Relief Society had a great activity where we each planned a Family Home Evening lesson with visuals and made enough copies for the group.  Then we all got together and shared a copy of our lesson with everyone in attendance.  At the end of the night we went home with a stack of ready-to-go Family Night lessons.  It was genius!  My friend Adrienne planned her lesson on the Word of Wisdom and came up with a great game!  My kids have loved the game over the years and now, with Adrienne’s permission, I am sharing her game as the activity to accompany my Sharing Time lesson for June’s theme: “I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principles”.  Use it in Primary and then bring it out for FHE too!

One of the gospel principles that we are asked to obey is the Word of Wisdom.  I know that when we obey God’s commandments we are blessed!  Blessings come in all shapes and sizes and often we may not even know or recognize all of them.

    This is a wonderful Word of Wisdom lesson for our Primary! Looks like fun too! Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. You are very welcome! We would love to hear any feedback after you’ve tried it out!

    What I love about this is the column headings : “Yes, please” and “No thank you,” equipping children with phrases to use when they’re offered these things. It’s way beyond “good for our bodies” and “not good for our bodies,” but simply and powerfully takes it right into the child’s life.

  11. Great Sharng time idea. Love that it so basic – “Yes, please” “No thank-you” – will use this for the younger kids. Sometimes it is hard to use the same activity for both Jr. and Sr primary. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Judy! Sometimes it’s those simple activities that are most memorable! Enjoy! We are publishing Primary Program Invitations next week so check back!
