    Family Night Fun

    Here are some ideas you could use for home evening!

    Song: “When I Am Baptized” (Children’s Songbook, 103)

    Scripture: Matthew 3:13–17

    Activity

    1. Read about Jesus being baptized, in Matthew 3 or on page FJ4. Talk about how Jesus set an example for us by being baptized.

    2. Play the matching game on page 7.

    3. When someone gets a match, talk about that part of the baptism covenant. How does the sacrament go along with baptism? (See *CFM, pages 19–21, 27.)

    “Bananut” Ice Cream

    The baptism covenant is a promise between two individuals: you and Heavenly Father. Here’s a recipe that needs just two ingredients! (This makes about 3 servings.)

    • Slice and freeze 4 large ripe bananas

    • Blend them until creamy

    • Add 2 tablespoons peanut butter

    • Blend until smooth

    • Enjoy your banana-peanut-butter ice cream!

    More Ideas

    • Read “A Promise to Try” (page 4). Talk about how Heavenly Father doesn’t expect us to be perfect—just to try, then repent when we mess up. Hang up page 9 as a reminder to keep trying! (See *CFM, page 19.)

    • Read “The Yo-Yo Decision” (page 22) and talk about what it means to “resist temptation.” (See *CFM, page 23.)

    • Is someone in your family getting ready for baptism? Pages 24–25 may help! (See *CFM, pages 19–21, 27.)
