Family Home Evening Ideas


If your parents ask you to help plan a family home evening, you may want to use an idea from the Friend. Here are some ideas in this issue that you may like (look for the FHE symbol on the [original magazine] pages mentioned):

  1. 1.

    Tell the story “Evacuate” (pages 8–10) and discuss how the story of Lehi and his sons helped Mark understand the importance of the scriptures.

  2. 2.

    Make the flannel-board figures (page 35) and use them to tell how Daniel obeyed the Lord (page 34). Ask, “How can we be like Daniel?”

  3. 3.

    Ask a parent or older brother or sister to discuss President James E. Faust’s regrets about not following the Savior’s example and helping his grandmother when he was young (IFC).

  4. 4.

    Sing “Heroes of the Scriptures” (page 14).

  5. 5.

    Make the Dad’s Day Doodle-Dump Cake (page 18) or any of the family home evening treats (page 23) for refreshments.

  6. 6.

    Do the scripture activity (page 26), or play the Noah’s Ark Game (pages 24–25, 27, and 39).
