Primary 3 lesson 2
Primary 3 Manual
Heavenly Father Trusts Us to follow His Plan
I also gave each child a crown from Zurchers. 12 for $2.95
As I placed the crown on each child's head, I took their face in my hands and looked into their eyes. I told them "You are a "Prince" or "Princess", a child of royal birth. This is after I read this poem:
"I am a child of royal birth,
My Father is King of heaven and earth.
My spirit was born in the courts on high,
A child beloved, a princess (or prince) am I."
I wanted them to each feel like a royal child of the king, Heavenly Father.
Instructions on the box: Cut around the solid black line. Fold on the dotted lines to make a box. Glue the end flaps. Fold the top end flap to close the box, but don’t glue it shut. Draw or glue a picture of yourself inside the blank frame. Read the scripture reference on each side of the box.
Cut out the scripture reference strips, and place them in the box. Each day choose a reference, and mark it in your scriptures. The scriptures will remind you who you are. Share the box during family home evening.
A side note: I didn't make each child a "badge" from the manual. They are too old for that, I chose to give them a crown instead.
