LDS Letter Square

Fill in the last name of each Latter-day Saint prophet. Then find all fifteen last names, and the following words and phrases, in the letter square by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Because all words have at least one letter that is not in any other word, it is important to find the longest words first and the shortest words last.

Trier

In Trinidad, children play a game called Trier. It is a little bit like jacks, but trickier!

You need at least 2 players, and 5 dried beans (like pinto beans) or small stones for each player.

The object of the game is to catch the beans without dropping them.

The youngest player goes first.

Put 5 beans in the palm of your hand. Gently toss the beans into the air, turn your hand over, and try to catch the beans on the back of your hand. (Do not pick up any beans that have fallen to the ground until after your turn is over.) Next, toss the beans that you were able to catch back into the air and catch them in your palm. You must always catch the beans with the same hand you used to toss them—you may not play with both hands.

If you dropped any beans in the second toss (from the back of your hand into your palm), your score for that round is zero. If you managed to catch all the beans on the second toss, your score for that round is that number of beans.

The player with the highest score after 3 rounds is the winner!

Mixed-up Sentences

Two twelve-word sentences are in the grid below, one word for each box. The words in the left-hand column are already in their correct places. The rest of the words are listed directly below their correct places. If you put these words in their proper boxes, you will learn something about Brigham Young.

Articles of Faith Word Maze

Find a letter path through the maze by connecting the letters that spell out the fourth article of faith by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Your path must never cross itself. Be careful—this can be tricky! We have started you off with the first two words, We believe. (See A of F 1:4.)
