HANDOUT IDEAS:

alt Are Your SCRIPTURES on the BACK BURNER? - A fabulous display of food and a beautiful setting have the makings for a superb feast.  Thin k of how much better the feast would be if only the finest ingredients were used in the preparation.  When cooking, what we put INTO our recipe determines what we'll GET OUT of it. The same thing goes for scripture reading.  What we put INTO our scripture study determines what we'll GET OUT of it.  See ideas on how to measure, mix, and pour the scriptures into your daily routine, AND ask for second helpings!

alt Handout Ideas on the Scriptures
alt Last night I went to a Stake Leadership Meeting with the Primary and came home with the cutest idea for a gift for the Primary Children. So I thought I would share. They had made little scripture books and gave each of us one. They are adorable. They took a snack box of raisins and with the smaller size of packing tape, wrapped the ends of it to make it look like pages, then took a red ribbon for the marker, glued it to the bottom and then covered the box with black felt. Then they took a piece of black construction paper, cut it to 1/2 the size of the box, wrote on it "Taste the Sweetness Within" and taped it to the front of the box. They are so cute. I would think this would make a really good "treat" for our Primary kids. (Janet Parsons)

OBJECT LESSONS:

alt Destiny Dice- Using a single dice, sit in a big circle. We went around the circle each asking a yes or no question to the Destiny Dice. Then the person asking the question would roll the dice. If it was an odd number, the answer was no. If it was an even number, the answer was yes. We had some surprising and interesting questions...ranging from "Will I ever visit the country of Canada?" to "Should I have pre-marital sex". The answer to that one from Destiny Dice was yes! Anyway...after each person had a chance to play, I told them that life doesn't have to be a "roll of the dice". We have prophets, the scriptures, personal revelation, priesthood leader, parents, etc to lead and guide us. And especially if Destiny Dice (or the world) tells us something like pre-marital sex is okay, we can know through the things listed above the way the Lord truly wants us to go. I am sure you get my drift. It was an enjoyable and yet effective teaching tool. (Terisa in Wyoming)
alt Give someone a cinnamon roll with the white frosting on top. Tell them that all they can do is lick the frosting off the cinnamon roll but that they cannot bite into the roll. Then liken that experience to surfing through the scriptures as opposed to diving in. (Idea by Barbara)
