1) Matching game: Talk about how Heavenly Father watches over us and how He let's us help Him watch over all of his children. Talk about visiting teachers and home teachers and how they help Heavenly Father watch over his children. Play a matching game by printing out 8 of these Helping Hands badges on stiff paper. Before class begins cut them out and color a pair red, another pair blue, another pair yellow, and another pair green. Turn the badges upside down and take turns turning them over to find a match. When a child finds a match have them say what they can do to help Heavenly Father watch over His children.

2) Make some glasses. Have the children color and cut out these glasses. Have them wear the glasses while they look at these pictures and say how they can help Heavenly Father watch over His children.

3) Talk about prayer and how we can ask Heavenly Father for the protection we need. 

4) Make a mobile about the prayer process and how we can receive answers. It is easier for Heavenly Father to protect us if we learn to listen to and obey the whisperings of the Holy Ghost.

5) Make a paper chain. On each strip of paper write or draw a way that Heavenly Father watches over His children. (If possible use colored construction paper to make it more interesting.) How long did your chain get?
