Invite one of the children to be the “Light of Christ.” Have this child stand in front of the group and hold the flashlight. Invite everyone else in the group to think of something that they can do to follow Jesus Christ (say our prayers, be baptized, read our scriptures, serve others, etc.).
Invite children to say what they are doing to follow Jesus Christ, and then act out the thing that they are doing. (For example: fold your arms and bow your head to act out “prayer.”) When someone does an action, the child with the flashlight should shine the “Light of Christ'' (the flashlight) on that person. Allow children to offer multiple answers to keep the game going.
Play for a minute or two, then discuss the following questions:
1) When Jesus Christ was on the earth, did He want everyone to see Him? Or did He hide? (He wanted everyone to see Him.)
