When children are small, pretending is really powerful. For Family Home Evening one week, we “found” “names” and took them to the “temple”.

They needed to answer interview questions to get their recommends. children holding up pieces of paper that look like temple recommends

I hid these pictures from the Friend around the room, and the children found them. children with pictures of people

They took the names they found to the “temple” and we made a big deal out of it. a blanket fort with children coming in and out of it

I have also done this activity with a small group of Primary children during singing time, and they loved it. (Inside the temple they learned what song we were going to sing next.)
