it has been made clear to me that i need to teach the plan of salvation (or the plan of happiness) over & over. this has become my favorite way. i will post it in sections because it takes several small sections of time to do.
we are teaching the plan of salvation in sections....before life, our Savior's plan, earth life, death, resurrection, & eternity. we are making things that represent these sections to hang in order from the ceiling. ours is in the playroom, which happens to be right off our kitchen & family room, so we see it all the time.
part 1- before life
you will need card stock paper, markers, scissors, ribbon/string, tacs/tape (to hang from the ceiling). talk about our pre-earth life and the events that happened there. i started by simply reading the first chapter of the children's Old Testament Stories, making sure to stress the points that i felt were important.
then we colored images that represented our pre-earth life. we have several star shapes & a sun. then we cut them out, taped them to ribbon and hung them in a corner of our playroom. the entire ceiling plan of salvation will go diagonal across the room.
