: Based on the ages and attention spans of your children, choose one or more of thefollowing enrichment activities to enhance the message of the lesson. Enrichment activities donot necessarily need to be completed on the same night as the lesson. We often use them asreinforcement/reminders during the week.
“I Spy Moroni and Hide the Plates”
–this game is played like “Hot and Cold”. An individualleaves the room and the group decides where to hide Moroni and/or the Golden Plates. When the player comes back into the room, the group will sing a favorite Primary song or hymn. When the player gets closer to Moroni or the plates, the group sings louder. When the player is far away,the group sings softer. Hide Moroni and the Plates in as difficult or easy places as you choose.
