What do Primary and President Monson have in common? Their birthdays are both in late August! The first Primary was held on August 25, 1878 (see History of Primary at lds.org). President Monson was born on August 21, 1927.

Perhaps your Primary children would like to celebrate one or the other? Or perhaps they would enjoy a birthday party for Primary and President Monson, all rolled into one? 

Download the lesson plan here.

What do you think President Monson would like for his birthday? I’ll bet his favorite present would be for you to serve someone else. For more service project ideas, check out “Creating a Culture of Service in our families and in Primary” and  “Pint-sized Service Projects

What other pint-sized service projects can you imagine? We’re always looking for ideas!
