Wordfind

Find the words in the following Book of Mormon scripture by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Since each word has at least one letter that is not in any other word, start with the longest words first. After you have found all of the words, find a secret message by circling all the unused letters and read them left to right from the top row to the bottom.

But, to be short in writing, behold, he saw other multitudes pressing forward; and they came and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press their way forward, continually holding fast to the rod of iron, until they came forth and fell down and partook of the fruit of the tree (1 Ne. 8:30).

Musical Pop-Hop Game

(A noncompetitive game for two or more children)

Arrange chairs, one for each player, in as large a circle (or semicircle) as possible. Play different kinds of music at different tempos. The children start by sitting on their chairs. As the music is played, when they feel they are “ready to burst” with it, they should pop off their chairs and hop around, pretending to be popcorn kernels, jumping jacks, frogs, floppy coil toys, or other active object. However, if they touch another child, the two who have touched must sit down again. When all the children are sitting, or when only one child is left, they take turns performing again, but one at a time, with the other children guessing what they are.
