1) Have the children make and decorate envelopes for you to put their letters in.

2) Bring a bag with things in it to talk about Jesus' three temptations:  A picture of the SE corner of Solomon's Temple, a few rocks, and a crown. Note that had Jesus jumped from the temple he would have been seen by men and he would have had instant glory and popularity for surviving the stunt. Does Satan temp us with the lure of popularity today?  Note that on the mountain top Satan offered Jesus kingdoms.  He was offering Jesus, the king of all, kingdoms that He already owned.  It would be like someone going into your bedroom with you, waving their arm around and saying, "you can have all these toys," when the toys are already yours (observation by popular, humourous LDS youth speaker Hank Smith in Five Temptation Killers).  Note that in all three temptations that Jesus was subjected to, he had a scripture he had memorized to help with each one. How can having a scripture memorized help us when temptations come? Share your favorite scripture.

3) Complete a maze:

4) Color a shield or use a pencil to poke holes along the lines. Turn the lights off and hold it up to a flashlight or window to see the beautiful effect it makes. Have one made in advance of class so you can show the children.  Place the papers on the floor and have them poke pencils through the paper to make the holes.

5) Learn American Sign Language for the song, Choose the Right.  On the right hand side of the screen there is a download icon for the ASL version.

6) Talk about choosing the right media and how it is brave to not do things that so many others are doing.

7) Solve this courage puzzle:

8) Tell President Hinkley's "B is for Boys" story about three eighteen year old boys. Talk about what it is to dare to do right and how that includes trusting the Lord.

"I should like to tell you of three eighteen-year-old boys. In 1856 more than a thousand of our people, some of them perhaps your forebears, found themselves in serious trouble while crossing the plains to this valley. Because of a series of unfortunate circumstances, they were late in getting started. They ran into snow and bitter cold in the highlands of Wyoming. Their situation was desperate, with deaths occurring every day.
President Young learned of their condition as the October general conference was about to begin. He immediately called for teams, wagons, drivers, and supplies to leave to rescue the bereft Saints. When the first rescue team reached the Martin Company, there were too few wagons to carry the suffering people. The rescuers had to insist that the carts keep moving.
When they reached the Sweetwater River on November 3, chunks of ice were floating in the freezing water. After all these people had been through, and in their weakened condition, that river seemed impossible to cross. It looked like stepping into death itself to move into the freezing stream. Men who once had been strong sat on the frozen ground and wept, as did the women and children. Many simply could not face that ordeal.
And now I quote from the record: “Three eighteen-year-old boys belonging to the relief party came to the rescue, and to the astonishment of all who saw, carried nearly every member of the ill-fated handcart company across the snowbound stream. The strain was so terrible, and the exposure so great, that in later years all the boys died from the effects of it. When President Brigham Young heard of this heroic act, he wept like a child, and later declared publicly, ‘that act alone will ensure C. Allen Huntington, George W. Grant, and David P. Kimball an everlasting salvation in the Celestial Kingdom of God, worlds without end.’” (Solomon F. Kimball,Improvement Era, Feb. 1914, p. 288.)
Mark you, these boys were eighteen years of age at the time. And, because of the program then in effect, they likely were holders of the Aaronic Priesthood. Great was their heroism, sacred the sacrifice they made of health and eventually of life itself to save the lives of those they helped." Source
