Quick to Observe (Obedience)
Mormon was described as a young child as being a sober child, quick to observe (obey) the commandments of the Lord. This week's lesson will explore what it means to be sober and quick to observe and how we can be more like Mormon!

You will need a long roll of string or yarn! Before you begin the lesson, unroll the string and make a trail that children can follow around the house from room to room. The string should begin in the same room where you will hold the lesson. The trail can end up anywhere you like! Hide a simple prize at the other end of the string (a small treat, a personal note, a photo of someone you love, etc.)

Show the start of the string to the children. Tell them that there is a surprise waiting for them at the other end of the string. All they have to do is follow the string to find it! Invite them to follow the string until they find the end!
Invite the children to return to their seats, and then discuss the following questions.
1) When you heard the directions and understood the game, did you obey quickly? Or did you ignore the directions? (Hopefully they obeyed quickly!)
2) When you were following the string, did you get scared or distracted? Or did you stay focused on the string? (Hopefully they stayed focused on the string!)
