Materials needed: scriptures, tray with 5-10 household itemsfor the memory game Purpose: Scripture: To help the children remember the Savior as they partake of the sacrament And that thou mayest more fully keep thyself unspotted from the world, thou shalt go to the house of prayer and offer up thy sacraments upon my holy day; Doctrine and Covenants 59:9

Opening Song(s):I Stand All Amazed, Hymns, page 193 Tell Me the Stories of Jesus, Childrens Songbook, page 57 Opening Prayer: Opening Activity: Memory Game: Place some items (5-10 depending on the age of your kids) on a tray and allow everyone to study it for about 1 minute. You may even name each item to help them remember. Then take the tray from the room and remove two items. Return and have everyone try to guess what is missing. (Use common household itemsbattery, brush, spoon, pencil, toothbrush, etc.) Transition: This was a fun activity about remembering, but now were going to talk about something else that is very important to remember. Lesson: Ask: *What meeting do we attend every Sunday with our families? (sacrament meeting) *What important thing do we do during that meeting? (the name tells us the most important thing partaking of the sacrament) Read or Retell the Account of the Last Supper with picture: (summary and picture included below) Ask: *Why do we take the sacrament? (To remember Jesus) Read the sacrament prayers, telling them to listen for any promises: Doctrine and Covenants 20:77, 79 Promise Chart: Using the chart as a guide, go over the promises we make each week as we take the sacrament. Then talk about the wonderful promise that weve been given from Heavenly Father (to have His spirit to always be with us) and what a wonderful blessing that promise is. (Spiritual and physical protection, comfort, help, increased faith, etc) Ask: How would you feel if Jesus knelt at the sacrament table in our ward and blessed the sacrament? Jesus has given young men the power of the priesthood to prepare, bless, and pass the sacrament for him. He wants us to take the sacrament as reverently as if he himself had blessed it. Thinking of Jesus story with pictures: This cute story is about some children and what is on their mind during the sacrament. Ask: What are some ways that you keep your mind focused on our Savior during the Sacrament? (Being reverent, silently singing a hymn in your mind (or reading the words to a hymn), not coloring or playing with toys during the sacrament, not getting up to use the restroom or drinking fountain, reading scriptures, having a book filled with pictures of the Savior, etc) For more ready-to-print FHE lessons visit

Conclude by bearing your testimony of the importance of the sacrament. Enrichment Ideas: Depending on the age and attention span of your children, use some of these Enrichment ideas as part of FHE or during the week to help enhance the message of the lesson: Right and Wrong Game: Give everyone 6 slips of paper and a pen and have everyone think about 3 good things and 3 bad things to do during the sacrament. Put all the slips in a bowl and take turns picking them out and deciding whether they go in the trash or in our church bag. Sacrament Prayers: Print off the word strips with the words to the sacrament prayers. Try to put them back in the correct order. Race mom and see who can do it fastest. Coloring Page and Sacrament Wheel: Print off the coloring page and sacrament wheel included below, color them, and hang them up in your house (or laminate and keep in your church bag) to help you to remember how important the sacrament is. You could also print them off to put in your church bag as a quiet, appropriate sacrament meeting activity. Make a Sacrament Book: Buy a cheap photo album from Michaels or Target and fill it with pictures of the Savior and your family. Make it a very special book that is only brought out during the sacrament and put away as soon as its over. Closing song(s): To Think About Jesus, Childrens Songbook, page 71 Im Trying to Be Like Jesus, Childrens Songbook, page 78 Closing Prayer:

The Last SupperLong ago when Jesus was with his Apostles in Jerusalem, he sent Peter and John to prepare a special supper for him and his Twelve Apostles. It was called the feast of the Passover. Jesus told his Apostles this would be the last time he would eat with them. He knew that he would soon be put to death. After the dinner had been eaten, Jesus did something that had never been done before on this earth. He prepared the first sacrament and gave it to his Apostles. He took bread, broke it into pieces, blessed it, and gave it to the Twelve. Jesus said, Take, eat; this is in remembrance of my body. Then he took wine, gave thanks, and gave it to his Apostles. Jesus said, This is in remembrance of my blood. He told his Apostles to partake of bread and wine often. He said, This do in remembrance of me. He wanted them to always remember him and his teachings. To remember his suffering and death. The sacrament was to help them remember. The sacrament is to help us remember too!

Thinking About Jesus Story:Print out the following four pages. Fold each page in half so the person shows on one side and what theyre thinking about shows on the other side (either that or cut each page into 2 and make a little booklet). Read the story and talk about how being reverent is important, it is only one part of taking the sacrament. Our thoughts should also be reverently thinking of the Savior and what he has done for us.

1. This friend is Garrett. He is a good boy and is a big help to his mommy, but today he forgot to close his eyes, bow his head, and fold his arms when the prayer was said on the sacrament. If you could see into his mind, this is what you would see.

2. He was thinking of something back home in his closet. It was his skateboard that his mother and father had given him for his birthday a few days ago. He was thinking about how much fun he had riding on it.

3. This is Mandy. It was her turn today to give the sacrament gem in Primary. She was so excited! She liked sitting up in front where she could see all her friends. During the sacrament prayer she bowed her head, closed her eyes, and folded her arms.
