The Sabbath Day Holy

So now that we have a regular schedule I'm hoping I can keep up FHE at home. Not that I had a good excuse but now I have no excuse whatsoever. So tonight we are going to be talking about keeping the sabbath day holy because for us, it's hard to determine what a two-year-old should and shouldn't do on the Sabbath. I know what we should and shouldn't do, but can we take Afton to the park on Sunday? What clothes should she wear so she still looks nice but doesn't get her pretty dress dirty? Anyway, I did some research and this is what I came up with:

Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy

Song: Saturday is a Special Day

Activity: Berenstain Bears Dress up Paper dolls. This is so cute. It has all four bears with wardrobes for different activities like everyday, working, snow day, church clothes. Print out a few wardrobes and try them all on, then talk about which clothes are good for sports, which clothes are good for working, which clothes are good for church.

Lesson: Read the friend article, Doing Good on the Sabbath Day.

What can we do on the Sabbath so we can show Heavenly Father we love Him? What shouldn't we do?

Game: Put a smiley face and a frowny face on the floor. Write and cut up some ideas things to do and not to do on the Sabbath day, Use the link above for some ideas. Have the kids pick one out of a bowl, read it, and put it either on the smile or the frown.

Treat: Microwave s'mores. yum
