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.

    Make the flannel-board figures (page 38) and use them to tell the story of Queen Esther (page 39). Discuss how fasting and prayer helped her save her people.

  2. 2.

    Tell one or more of the following stories: “May Li’s Family Prayer” (pages 2–4), “Going to Father for Help” (pages 8–10), “Trust in the Lord” (pages 40–42). Talk about some of the blessings your family receives from prayer.

  3. 3.

    Invite a family member to tell about Elder Claudio R. M. Costa (pages 6–7) and the part prayer played in his conversion.

  4. 4.

    Cut out the figures and make the house on pages 28–29. Use them to talk about some of the different kinds of prayers we can offer in our homes.

  5. 5.

    Carefully remove the poster (pages 24–25) from the magazine and place it somewhere in your home so that family members will see it each morning before they go out.

  6. 6.

    Do one of the scripture activities (pages 5, 12–13, 35).

  7. 7.

    Make the “Tutti-Frutti Salad” (page 22) for refreshments.
