Invite children to stand. Tell them that they will now be asked to point in several different directions and to follow the instructions to the best of their ability.


Point down! Use both arms and keep your arms straight. Reach as low as you can!



Now point to the right! Keep your arms straight. You can lean with your body too if you want. Reach over as far as you can.



Now point to the left! Keep your arms straight. You can lean with your body too if you want. Reach over as far as you can.


Now point up. Use both arms together and reach up as high as you can!


Ask the following question:


When you were pointing, which way makes you think of Heavenly Father the most? (Discuss)


Display a picture of a temple with a spire. Explain that Heavenly Father has commanded us to build temples on the earth, and that temples help us to grow closer to Heavenly Father. Even if we just look at a temple it makes us think about Heavenly Father right away, because it is pointing up!
