Have a Book of Mormon night. Build some sort of tower (make sure it is sturdy and safe!) or just use ladders. Then have “King Benjamin” come and give part of his famous speech from the first chapters of Mosiah. Have everyone sit on blankets, gathered close enough to hear. Pass out written copies of the selections that are read, just as was done in King Benjamin’s time. Food such as flat bread, cheese, and grapes could fit into the theme as refreshments.
Service Project Suggestion
Family Home Evening Ideas
“Choose the Right … Media,” on page 37, get together with your family and clean out your videos and DVDs. Discard those that don’t fit with your family goals, and create another stack that you could watch together on special movie nights, especially videos produced by the Church.
Read together the article
“Penny for Your Prayers,” on page 29. Give each person attending your family home evening a small coin to put in his or her shoe as a reminder to pray. Follow up the next week, and have all report on their experiences with prayer during the week.
