Summer in the northern hemisphere brings Pioneer Day on July 24, President Monson’s birthday on August 21, 1927, and Primary’s birthday on August 25, 1878 (see History of Primary at lds.org).
To celebrate Pioneer Day, or illustrate any lesson about faith or courage, try this lesson: Simple Pioneer Trek for children. This is one of the favorite lessons of all time, and will stay with your children for a lifetime — guaranteed.
To celebrate President Monson’s birthday or Primary’s birthday, try this lesson: August: Celebrate birthdays of Primary, Pres. Monson. What do you think President Monson would like for his birthday? I’ll bet his favorite present would be if you served someone else.
Enjoy these special days with your Primary children!
