Once upon a time, this was my blog for Ward Activity Ideas. Since then, I have served in YW, and Mid-singles. Currently, I am leading the Primary Children's singing time. Thus, I have expanded this site to include anything LDS activity related.

I Can Pray With My Family (Game)

This game is to coincide with {{Lesson 27: We Can Pray As A Family}} for Sunbeams. It can also be used with any lesson on prayer, including Family Home Evening.

(Clipart from www.clipartkid.com) 

How To Play:
1. Place picture of family kneeling in prayer on board (or in the middle of the table or floor). 
2. Cut out and spread game cards around the room (or let each child have a turn to draw one from a draw pile). 
3. Discuss the picture with the class. Ask, "Is this something that would be appropriate to pray for? Is it appropriate for the whole family to pray for?" Discuss the whys and why-nots.
4. If it IS APPROPRIATE, place card on board around the main picture. 
5. If it is NOT APPROPRIATE, place card in the discard pile. Be sure to discuss alternatives to the inappropriate cards. i.e., it isn't appropriate to ask Heavenly Father to bless us with a pool party, however if we have a pool party, it is appropriate to ask for blessings of safety.
6. We do not keep score. This is a fun exercise in which everyone gets a chance to discuss and participate.
