Homemade Sunshine

(A rebus)
Pure religion … is this, To visit the fatherless and widows … and to keep himself unspotted from the world (James 1:27).

House Filled with Love

Photocopy or trace the house below onto a white sheet of paper. Lightly color the house except for the windows and door. Draw some spring flowers, a tree, a sun, and some clouds in the sky, or whatever you wish. On the back of the page, draw your family behind the windows and door or around the house. Turn the picture back around so that your family is hidden. Then hold the picture against a windowpane, and your family will reappear, filling the house with love.

From King to Spring

“King” rhymes with “spring.” Draw a line from the King Snowman picture to the nearest picture whose name also rhymes with “spring.” Keep drawing lines to pictures whose names rhyme with “spring” until you reach the Spring picture. Then look at all the pictures you haven’t drawn lines to. All are springtime gifts from Heavenly Father.

He Lives!

has risen,
And He lives
He lives to teach
and guide me.
He’s the Light,
the Truth, the Way.

Ice-Cream Baskets

To make six Ice-Cream Baskets, you will need: a melon scoop; six aluminum cupcake liners (the baskets—small pudding dishes may also be used); four cups ice cream or sherbet, preferably in different flavors; a freezer-safe baking dish; six pieces of curling ribbon, 10″ (25 cm) long, curled; and six licorice sticks.

Use the small end of the melon scoop to fill each basket with tiny balls of ice cream. Place the filled baskets in the baking dish and freeze them for at least one hour.

Just before serving, tie a ribbon around each licorice stick. Then form a handle for each basket by wedging the ends of a licorice stick into opposite sides of it.
