Tracing Paper FHE

Topic: Jesus set the perfect example for me to follow.

Introduction Activity: Hold up the movie Peter Pan. What songs are in this movie? Sing Following the Leader, stress the words, "Wherever he may go..." It's a nice song, but it depends on the leader. A bad leader could take you somewhere not safe. Now sing the song, "Come Follow Me." Jesus is our perfect leader and will never lead us astray.

Activity: Take different black and white coloring images of the savior, just search the friend archives online. Next put a piece of tracing paper (You can get a pad with 30 sheets for $1.60 at Michael's with a 40% off coupon) over the image.

Talk about tracing and following the lines. You need to do it carefully, not scattered. Just like when we follow Christ, we need to be exact- read our scriptures daily, go to church often, pray always.... not randomly here and there. Would it be hard to trace with a black piece of construction paper? The gospel of Jesus Christ makes it easier and clearer for us to follow the Savior.

Take turns tracing the image as a family. Each person gets 10 seconds to trace and has to share a favorite story about the Savior or a way to follow Him.

Scripture: John 10:27 "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me."

End with Jesus is our perfect leader. He's NEVER going to lead us astray. He set the perfect example for us to follow. He is our shepherd who loves us. Bear testimonies.
