i wanted to make it clear that our Savior is an integral part of the plan of salvation. i love using the word integral here because one of the definitions of integral is "necessary to the completeness of the whole." and that is exactly what we need our children to understand.
so step 2 of our ceiling plan of salvation is focused on our Savior, Jesus Christ.
for the lesson part, i passed the buck & asked my husband to talk to the girls about it. i loved what he did though. he told them a story and had 2 of my girls act out the story with dolls. he told the "parable of the bicycle" from the book "Believing Christ" by Stephen E. Robinson. at first i wasn't sure if my girls were old enough to understand, but in the end i really felt that they got it.
for the ceiling part we took 3 gospel art kit pictures & taped them together to make a mobile. i used a picture of the Savior being baptized, in the Garden of Gethsemene, and the Savior's resurrection. we taped them together in a triangle & hung it with string.
