➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Tell children they will be completing a series of challenges as an introduction to the lesson.

First challenge: Invite children to simply go from one side of the room to the other.

Second challenge: Invite children to go again from one side of the room to the other, but this time they can only use one foot.

Third challenge: Now invite children to go once again from one side of the room to the other, and this time they must use no feet! (They can use knees, hands and elbows, army crawl, etc.)

After completing the activity, ask the following question:

When I changed the rules for the challenge, did it make you mad, or was it kind of fun? (Hopefully kind of fun!)

Explain the following: Things change all the time. Some days are good days, and some days are bad days. But we can find joy all the time if we are trust Heavenly Father and if we are trying our best to keep the commandments.

🎥 V I D E O : “Joy in Every Season”

Say: “We are going to watch a video about two robots - a green robot, and a yellow robot. One robot is angry in every season, and the other robot is happy in every season. See if you can tell which robot is happy in every season.”
