MeckMom’s Teaching Tips: 30-second Trick for Teaching Scripture Stories

The internet is full of beautiful printables to teach the scripture stories. Unfortunately, sometimes you only have a few minutes to throw together a meaningful FHE or Primary lesson. In this short video I teach my favorite quick and easy trick for helping young kids act out the scripture stories. Using simple supplies you can find in any Church library, you’ll be able to whip up a finger-puppet primary lesson in a matter of minutes.

MeckMom’s Teaching Tip: FREE Gospel Art Kit Scripture Stickers

The scriptures are always the best tool to teach kids the gospel – but they can be intimidating for kids to use. When my kids were little I really wanted to help them connect with their scriptures (without spending a ton) so I created these cool, transparent scripture stickers based on the Gospel Art Kit found on LDS.org.

This year, I completely revamped the original stickers I created back in 2008. I included tons of new pictures from each of the four books of scripture (140 stickers total) and added all the the references and page numbers right on the sheet. I also formatted them to fit perfectly on my favorite peel-n-stick sticker paper so you could skip all the cropping time. They’re so much easier to use now. Here’s a pic of me putting the new set on my son’s scrips while I was waiting to pickup kids in my car. Multi-tasking moms unite. 😉

The best part about these little gifts is that they’re storage-friendly. You could make dozens of them while you have your next presidency meeting and then store them in the Primary closet all year.

Sometimes scripture study needs a little boost. What better way to keep kids on track with their scripture goals this a simple printable…chock-full of scripture power?

MeckMom Super Suckers 3

Bold, bright and easy to assemble, they’re the perfect addition to your next Primary sharing/singing/class time or as a sweet incentive in your family scripture study. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the latest review from Mary, a Primary Chorister in Heber, Utah…

“These were a BIG hit in my singing time/scripture chase activity! The kids thought they were SO cool and such a fun way to reinforce the theme of the year! I was afraid they’d be time-consuming to construct, but they were very easy to cut and looked awesome without much effort! I’d totally make them again!”

The super suckers come in two sets: red, green, blue, yellow or pink, purple, aqua, yellow. You can find them in the Sugardoodle Shop for only $3.50 each.

Scripture Power Reading Chart

Dear Friends-
We live in a world that idolizes fame and fortune…  Football and basketball stars of our favorite teams, movies, musicians and movie stars, even Super Heroes like Superman, Batman, The Hulk and Thor. We all want and need someone to look up to. Oftentimes, the people that live with us and love us throughout our lives are our Hero’s, though many times we overlook them.
I love the Primary 2016 Theme I Know The Scriptures Are True and know there is a power and strength that comes from reading the scriptures each day. Scripture Power.
Who are our hero’s? Our children’s hero’s? The scriptures are filled with wonderful examples of true hero’s for us to look up to and follow. This is a great time to talk around the kitchen table and talk about our favorites and why … Nephi, Ammon, Captain Moroni, Abinadi, 2000 Stripling Warriors, Alma the Younger, The Brother of Jared, Sons of Mosiah and most especially Jesus Christ. We can pick our favorite (s) and make a list of their character traits we want to strive for in our lives.
I have included a link to our FREE Scripture Power Book of Mormon Reading Chart for you to download for each member of your family or church group to keep track of your progress. Happy Reading!
Take care,
Brenda
